Inter manager Luciano Spalletti spoke to Sky Italia after his side’s emphatic 5-0 win at home at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza against Chievo Verona in Serie A and had nothing but words of praise for his side.

“In this Inter there are many professionals who work hard in the right manner. The merits of a victory go out to the whole team, today’s second goal is emblematic of this group: Perisic presses the play, we win the ball back and we go and score with Mauro Icardi. When someone like Perisic runs 80 metres to to chase down a seemingly trivial ball, everything becomes so much easier. To play a game like we did today and be a team that aspires to great things we need to find the measures in all areas, a good defensive line, it all helps in the race.”

The former Roma coach went on to speak about one of the players that featured today that hasn’t seen much game time lately, namely Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario stating that “today he made sure he was ready and prepared, he played a good game despite his missed opportunity in the first half. Whoever plays in the place of another isn’t inferior to them. I decide my team not by rejecting but by choosing. We need to consolidate all this and continue to work hard. We have only reached this level recently, we still have a long road ahead of us and only after can we say if we are at the same level as the others.”

Spalletti concluded by talking about next weekend’s Derby d’Italia against Juventus at the Allianz Stadium: “We want to take home all 3 points, we want to win against Juventus as we do against every team. They have been winning for 6 years here in Italy, playing in finals everywhere, they have a lot of personality and some great players: it will be a great match.”
