Inter coach, Simone Inzaghi was all smiles as he discussed the win over Roma giving a special mention to our Man of the Match Ivan Perisic.
Interview below –
“The players did really well and it wasn’t an easy game. Roma are a quality team with an excellent squad. We controlled the game very well and deserve to go through to the semi-finals.
“We came into it off the back of a big setback and I’ve paid tribute to the players because we were able to turn in a top performance after two-and-a-half days of preparation.”
The Nerazzurri coach mentioned Bastoni’s injury who was subbed off before half time.
“We hope it’s nothing serious. The way it happened was unfortunate. We hope not to lose him for a long time because he’s a very important player for us.”
Inzaghi spoke more on the tempo and tactics for each match.
“It’s not easy to control matches and we’ve been doing that almost all the time. We have to consider our opponents as well and it’s inevitable that there will be times when we have to dig in. There wasn’t much of that tonight, but the team remained compact and focused throughout.”
Inzaghi went on further to discuss Perisic and the current position and performances of Inter in all competitions.
“Ivan is a player who’s performed at a very high level since the start of the year. I’m pleased because he’s doing well, just like his team-mates. Inter are top of the table, through to the last 16 of the Champions League, won the Italian Super Cup and are in the Coppa Italia semi-finals.
“I can only be happy about what this squad is achieving. There are tough opponents to face and there’s a difficult path ahead of us, but we desperately wanted this win against a Roma side with excellent players and a fantastic coach.”
