Nakamura about the Candidates R5 game against Nepo: I am disgusted

Hikaru Nakamura recaps his R5 game from the FIDE Candidates Tournament against Ian Nepomniachtchi. Nakamura had a clearly better position but lost the advantage after an inaccurate 28.Na5? and the game ended in a draw. Nakamura named the R5 game: “I am disgusted”, but he also emphasized he is satisfied with the current result of 2.5 points (1 loss, 1 victory, 3 draws).
