Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni is pleased to have shown once again that he and his teammates can play good football and get results under Simone Inzaghi with a 2-1 win over Lazio.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the match, the 22-year-old spoke about his opening goal and praised the Nerazzurri’s coach for instilling an enjoyable style of play in the team.
The Nerazzurri faced the only team to have beaten them over the first half of the campaign in the form of Lazio, and this time they managed to take three points.
This makes it eight wins in a row since the return from the November international break, taking the Nerazzurri back to the top of the table ahead of city rivals AC Milan, with a game in hand.
Bastoni was glad to be back in action, pleased to secure three vital points, and to do so in style.
Of his goal, the defender stated that “I was going to take it first time, but Brozovic gave me a shout. I was able to get myself in a better position to shoot.”
“It’s a strange feeling, I hadn’t scored for two years,” he went on. “Until last matchday we joked that I didn’t even go up for corners.”
“We are happy to win after having the match postponed against Bologna,” he went on. “We have the Scudetto on our chest and we want to defend it at all costs: winning is a wonderful feeling, and over the last two years we have developed a winning mentality.”
“We want to continue like that,” he added. “I had some difficulties adjusting to Inzaghi’s system at first, but we’ve gotten used to the style of play, now we win and we enjoy ourselves.”
