Inter manager Antonio Conte has insisted that his team must be ready for a match that might not be entirely beautiful when they take on Spanish side Getafe tomorrow night in the last 16 of the Europa League.

“Getafe are a very physical team. they are compact and fighting for the second ball is their best weapon,” he explained in an interview with Inter’s official club broadcaster Inter TV, a short time ago.

“We have seen their games like those against Barcelona, ​​Real and Atletico and they have been difficult. We have to get used to a game that can be dirty, not beautiful, but you have to be good at getting your hands dirty.”

He was then asked what else he is expecting from the Spanish side, who finished eighth in the recently concluded 2019/20 La Liga season.

“I expect to come up against a good team and have difficulties. We studied them, we also talked about them with Godin because he came from La Liga and he told us a bit about their characteristics. They don’t give up. We have to be good at getting our hands dirty and not only sacrificing ourselves, but combining both.”

The recently turned 51-year-old, who formerly managed the Italian national team, then went on to sing the praises of the group of players at his disposal and what working hard will help them to do.

“This year we have done some excellent things, there has been clear progress. I was lucky enough to find players who believed in work and new ideas.

“There has always been collaboration, self-sacrifice, and the fact that we have also achieved better results than in the past, I am happy for them. With work and sacrifice the results come.”

In conclusion he was asked how the team have been able to train for the match given they have just had one training session since this past weekend’s 2-0 win over Atalanta in the 2019/20 Serie A season finale.

“There wasn’t much time available, but we have reached a level that allows us to prepare for games in a short time. We have been working on concepts for a long time and the players have understood them, so we will be ready.”
