Lautaro Martinez: "Winning is always important, now we continue to prepare for Lecce"
Lautaro Martinez made his season debut yesterday against Valencia due to arriving later than any other players because of Copa America. Speaking to Inter TV, the Argentinian emphasizes the importance of winning, even if it was just a friendly.
"The first half was a bit complicated for us, then in the second half we had more control of the ball and we improved. In the end we won on penalties and winning is always important, even if only in order to start the season well. All that matters now is preparing in the right way for Inter vs. Lecce, which we will play at home in front of our own fans.”
"Before coming back to training, I had already spoken to Conte: he’s an excellent coach. As regards to strikers, his plans call for them to remain close and create many opportunities. The following weeks will be vital in order to understand his ideas the best we can. We’re working hard, and this team are ready to give everything. We know that we can do better, but we have a good team and will be ready come the start of the league season.”
