The Inter Milan captain Icardi, couldn’t hide his displeasure with recent developments, said that Inter’s world is crumbling.

Icardi, who scored the only goal for Inter and his ninth for the season in their 2-1 loss to Southampton said to Sky Italia “We played well in the first half and took the lead, but I don’t know why every time we concede a goal our whole world seems to come crumbling down around us,”

“It keeps happening, a goal out of nowhere and we just lose it. We conceded the second goal in a strange way.

“If we knew what was causing it we would change immediately because all we want is to do well.

“It is going to be hard for us to qualify from the group now but as long as it is still possible we have to go for it. There is not much to say. It is an unlucky moment and everything is going wrong.

“We must do whatever it takes to turn things around.”

Icardi added: “I think in football the coach always pays the price because it’s impossible to fire 25 players. I always said that when the coach leaves, it’s because the players did not give their best.

“Now we are working with Vecchi and then we will see what the club decides.”

Inter Milan were led by their youth team coach Stefano Vecchi at St Mary’s just two days after Frank De Boer was sacked

Inter are bottom of the group on three points, four adrift of Southampton in second with two games to play.
