US Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi has eulogized Kevin-Prince Boateng for his display in their goalless draw against Inter Milan on Saturday.

The Neroverdi had arguably the best scoring opportunities, forcing Samir Handanovic into tough saves with Kevin-Prince Boateng and Jeremie Boga.

In his post-match presser, coach De Zerbi singled out the former AC Milan ace for praise after overcoming his recent injury woes to help the side pick a crucial point at the San Siro.

“We rediscovered ourselves in this game not so much in tactical terms, but in our determination to fight for every ball and suffer to get a result, because that is part of football,” the Coach told DAZN.

“I am satisfied to also have some important players back to fitness. Boateng put in a great performance, as when he was injured, the team lost a lot of quality.

“I’m glad that we kept a clean sheet, because statistically we concede many goals in the final stages and that is something we have been working on.

“I believe this team will reach its full maturity, although I cannot say precisely when.”
