- Inter coach Antonio Conte spoke after the Inter Milan’s 2-1 victory over Sampdoria. Speaking after the game, he shared his techniques and believes in his squad.
“Kill the opponent, I always tell my players this. You have the chance, even against Napoli the match was clear, you create a lot, 1-1 and you go home and you’re subject to criticism. Just that they say that we’re out of the title race, we were nine points behind, if we had drawn the direct clashes against Juventus, we’d be equal to them.” He said
“The difference is there, we have room for growth, I’m satisfied with what I’ve seen. We did well, but if we want to do something extraordinary, we have to be more clinical. I have great confidence, we need poison, we need to feed hope.” Added the coach.
Conte commented on the spectacular performance of Danish midfielder Christian Eriksen, who bagged an assist after setting up Romelu Lukaku at the start of the game. And expressed their determination in winning today’s game.
“I am satisfied with the offensive department; we created a lot. I think they had a good game. Eriksen could have scored a couple of goals, he has to become more clinical too, he has to find the goal as well.
“We worked both tactically and physically with him. Everyone’s happy, but I find the flaws. We have licked our wounds after Napoli, not tonight.” Said Antonio
“Today, you have to be determined, cynical, because one situation and you’re in trouble. You go from a 3-0 to a 2-1, this game was vital for us.
“We don’t have room to make mistakes, we had opportunities to make the game 3-0 and we didn’t take advantage of them. We want to get back in the game, we’re six points behind and there are 12 games to go. My wish is to have everyone at our disposal, we want to play our cards right, knowing that the margins of error are minimal.” He added.
