Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has emphasised his belief that Inter winning games is more important to him than his personal goalscoring record, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media this evening.

Speaking to DAZN after the 3-2 victory over Napoli tonight, via FCInternews, the Argentine striker discussed the fact that he seemingly apologised to the Inter fans on the pitch for his lack of recent goals.

The striker had not scored for Inter since October 2 before he scored the all important third goal against Napoli to make it 3-1.

“Yes I apologised, mistakes happen and I haven’t scored for almost a month. But I always work for Inter, the problem is if we don’t win and not if I don’t score. My family was there and it’s always emotional.”

Lautaro Martinez also talked about how important it is for Inter to have finally beaten one of their rivals at the top of the table, as they had not all season until this game.

“For us it was very important given the standings. A direct match against whoever is in the lead. We had already done well in the derby and we deserved more, today we had to win.

“Sometimes the result didn’t smile for us, but today I think the team has shown a lot of character.”

The assist for Lautaro Martinez’s goal came from his compatriot Joaquin Correa. He revealed the pair had discussed helping each other to score goals.

“He is serious, he works hard. He told me he would give me a hand to score goals.”

As for the Scudetto, Lautaro Martinez feels the team must still try to improve: “Let’s see step by step. We are the champions, but we have to improve to try to move forward.”
