Inter’s Argentinian international striker Lautaro Martinez has revealed that he will extend his contract with the Nerazzurri and that he is happy at the club, he said moments ago on Italian TV.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN immediately after the final whistle in the Serie A game against Benevento where he scored a goal and assisted Lukako for another, he underlined how happy he is at the Nerazzurri.
“We are looking for this [to extend my contract to end of June 2024]. I am happy at Inter, everybody treats me well here.
“The coach believes in me, I always look to give my best on the pitch, then what happens off it you resolve.”
The former Racing Avellanada man admitted that he needs to be more cynical in front of goal and that he has missed far too many easy chances this season.
“There have been many easy goals where I have not been able to score and I scored one where I wasn’t looking to score.
“But the most important thing is that Inter wins, I always work hard to give my best. We are happy.
“I am a striker, I have to score. But I work for the team then you can miss chances but I have to improve. I want to do so every day, give my best for Inter and that the coach sees this.”
Inter won the match 4-0 thanks to a brace from Romelu Lukaku as well as already mentioned a goal from Lautaro Martinez with Improta breaking the deadlock with an owngoal following a Christian Eriksen set piece.
“Lukaku is very important for us, today even when he wasn’t at his best he scored two goals. We are happy, we work for this and we are happy when Inter wins. Then if we manage to score then that’s even better.”
The Nerazzurri now sit in second place in the Serie A Standings with 44 points, just 2 shy of cross-town rival AC Milan on 46 who defeated Bologna away earlier today by 2-1.
