It was put to the former Manchester United man that Inter may now have opened up a cycle of winning trophies. The Italian chose to reiterate the players’ immense desire to win trophies.

“What we want is to win, when you play for such an important club the goals are high. We want to go far in every competition, today was the first trophy to be won: we are happy with the work we are doing. For society and fans who supported us from the first to the last minute.”

“We are a great group, we are all rowing on the same side and we are proving it. This is what it takes to win something important.”

Despite the jubilant tone, Matteo Darmian made it clear that all eyes are now on Serie A again.

“We throw ourselves back into the championship, there is a very difficult match against Atalanta but we are going to Bergamo for the three points.”
