Andrea Pinamonti has urged his Inter teammates to keep the feelgood factor high by beating Roma tonight.
Inter have nothing to play for in their final three games of the season, having wrapped up the Serie A title two weekends ago, but Antonio Conte’s side will want to finish the campaign in emphatic style.
Pinamonti does not start at San Siro tonight, with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez preferred in attack instead, but he did his bit by issuing a rallying cry prior kick-off.
“We’re ready to give our best and pick up more points,” the striker told Inter TV.
“It’ll be tough against Roma because it always is, but even more so tonight as they’re fighting to secure a place in Europe.”
Pinamonti fulfilled a lifelong dream on Saturday by scoring his first senior goal for Inter, during the Nerazzurri’s 5-1 thrashing of Sampdoria.
The 21-year-old remains overwhelmed by the emotions he felt at the weekend, explaining: “It’s special.
“It was an incredible feeling and I hope it’s only the first of many.”
Pinamonti has only made six appearances for Inter this season, but he remains convinced that the 2020-21 campaign will make him a better player in the long run.
“It’s been a hugely important season training alongside the likes of Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez,” he added.
“I haven’t had much game time but I’ve developed a lot, and I’m certain all the advice I’ve gained this year will help me a lot for the future.”
