Inter striker Lautaro Martinez is glad to have been able to prove himself in a Nerazzurri shirt once again with his penalty against Venezia in yesterday’s Serie A win.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the win, the Argentine emphasized his commitment to the club and his desire to keep working and help the team on to great things in the future.

Martinez recently committed his future to the Nerazzurri with a contract extension that takes him until the end of June 2026 at the club, and he wants to show that he deserves the trust of the club.

The 24-year-old is a key player in attack for the team, and he proved it once again in Venice as he came on for his compatriot Joaquin Correa during the second half to give the team a lift going forward and killed off the game by converting a late penalty to make it 2-0.

“It was a tough game today with the rain,” the striker said, “but we are happy with our performance and happy to bring these three very important points home to Milan. We have to move up in the standings since we are still behind.”

He went on that “We have to continue like this, right now it is impossible to say whether we can defend the Scudetto or not. ”

“After trying for so many years we have advanced in the Champions League,” he continued, “but in the league we haven’t started perfectly. Now we show more maturity in every match which allows us to move up the table.”

On scoring from the spot after missing a penalty against Milan, he stated that “When you miss one it’s bad, but sometimes it happens: penalties put the pressure on the taker. Today I scored and I’m happy.”

And asked whether he wanted to be the future of Inter, the striker responded “I hope so, I’ve been here since 2018 and I’ve always fought for this shirt.”
