Inter striker Lautaro Martinez discussed the Nerazzurri’s exciting 4-2 win over Torino today in an interview with Italian broadcaster InterTV immediately after the game.
“We are happy with the second half, the first one was not good for us. We did not play well, we conceded a lot of counter attacks.
“We played as we had practiced so we have to understand what we did wrong, to improve and do what we did in the second half, with patience with the ball, with desire and determination that led to the four goals, which is not easy.”
The 23-year-old Argentine striker then discussed the importance of collecting three points from the match.
“That’s what’s important in fact. The good thing about today is that we showed character and it is important. We have to keep it up because we have a very important game this week.
“We have to win because we are at home, because we have to do it. We need points and we need to show what we showed today in the second half today.”
The 23-year-old Lautaro, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2023, has made 11 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 751 minutes. In that time, he’s scored six goals and provided two assists, recovering from a five game goal drought.
A win today was crucial for the Milanese club, who had not won a league game since the 2-0 win over Genoa at the end of October.
Antonio Conte and the squad will now be looking ahead to next week’s vital Champions League match against Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid.
It’s a must win game if Inter want to progress out of the group stage, considering that they’ve currently only picked up two points out of three games.
