Conte’s comments about rest of the season
After the game, Nerazuri head coach Antonio Conte made a comment. The Italian specialist said that his team has not won anything yet and they know very well that there are 14 games left.
“Genoa was in good shape, but we had the right approach and we scored 3 goals. We are happy because the work paid off. The team realizes its potential and grows. We know we have 14 games remaining in the season. When you train or play at Inter, you should always play to win. The history of the club clearly shows everything, we have not won a Scudetto for so many years and we were very close in my first season. “I think we would like to have a chance to get into the Champions League now. In previous years, the gap with Juventus was more than 20 points. We cut it down last year and now we have to keep playing to win. “
Let us remind you that Inter is leading in Serie A with 56 points, while Juventus, occupying the third place, is already 10 points ahead, although the Turin players played less. Inter will play their next match on Wednesday against Parma.
It would be interesting for Barca admitted Conte
Inter striker Lautaro Martinez, whose future is actively associated with Barcelona, said that he intends to stay at the Milan club for a long time.
“In the summer I will not leave Inter. Yes, a year ago Barcelona was interested in me, but I immediately openly told Conte that I was thinking only of Inter and the negotiations would not affect me.
Now all this is in the past, and I am going to sign a new contract with Inter. I don’t know when Inter will officially announce this. “I like the club, the city and the fans,” the Italian media quoted the Argentinean as saying.
Lautaro Martinez joined Inter from Racing Argentina in the summer of 2018, when the transfer cost was 25 million euros. The 23-year-old has played 23 Serie A games this season, scoring 13 goals and providing four assists.
Lautaro, who is valued at 70 million euros by Transfermarkt.com, has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2023.
