Inter’s Milan Skriniar has spoken about the support he’s received from both the staff and supporters around Inter while competing at the Euros with Slovakia.

In a post-match interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia following Slovakia’s 0-1 defeat against Sweden, reported by FCInterNews, the Slovak talked about the positive effect that support from the Nerazzurri has had on him at the tournament.

Despite being disappointed with the result in today’s match, Skriniar felt proud of the performance of himself and his team.

Slovakia still have a chance of qualifying for the knockout rounds, having gained three points against Poland in their Group E opener against Poland, and the 26-year-old center-back was in good spirits.

He talked about how he is at a point in his career where he feels like a leader among his teammates, and he also took the time to talk about Inter, the new manager Simone Inzaghi, and greeting Nerazzurri supporters around the world.

Skriniar’s words:

“I’m very sorry to have lost, we played a good match as a team with a strong mentality. We tried until the very end to score but unfortunately we were unable to.”

Asked about his leadership qualities he said:

“Am I a leader also on the national team? I feel responsible for my teammates, I have to give them support whether we’re ahead or behind.”

He continued: “I have to congratulation because we are playing well. Qualification now is difficult, but not impossible. We have to beat Spain. We still believe we can keep ourselves alive.”

Skriniar closed by talking about Inter supporters and Inzaghi:

“Mister Inzaghi wrote to me after the goals [against Poland], but also before. We are in contact. I ham happy that Nerazzurri fans are supporting me, and I want to say hello to them.”
