Inter midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu feels that the most important part of yesterday evening’s match against Venezia in Serie A was that his team were able to take home the three points.

Speaking to InterTV after the match, the Turk emphasized that while he was glad to have found the back of the net to open the scoring, his main source of satisfaction was the win by the team as a whole.

Inter capped off a strong week which saw them make up ground to within four points at the top of the Serie A table and secure qualification for the knockout rounds of the Champions League by travelling to Venice and beating newly-promoted Venezia.

Calhanoglu’s first-half strike from distance was crucial to his side taking away all three points, with the only other goal of the match having been a penalty by Lautaro Martinez in the dying minutes of the match.

“Today was important,” he said of the victory. “I’m very happy because I scored from outside the box. But the most important thing is the three points, we knew that today would be a tough game in this small stadium and with this atmosphere, it was difficult.”

“Then Lauti scored after the ninetieth minute,” he added, “we finished off the game with that, and we are happy that we got closer to Milan and Napoli.”

“I try to give my all for the team,” the midfielder explained. “I don’t care too much whether I score or not because I want to give my all for the team.”

“The three points are what matters to me,” he added. “Today we proved again that we have the right mentality, and that’s important. We are happy to go home with the three points.”

On the qualification for the Champions League knockout rounds, he said that “We have to wait for those matches. Now we have to recover well because we have many games to play, now we focus on Spezia at home, another important match, Let’s see what happens.”
