Inter striker Lautaro Martinez feels that the team still need to improve based on what they showed over two legs against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Speaking to InterTV after yesterday evening’s second leg of the tie, the Argentine stressed that in the end his goal didn’t accomplish anything as in the end the team were knocked out by the Reds on aggregate.

Martinez’s strike midway through the second half gave his team real hope of going through to the quarter-finals, reducing the deficit to one goal, probably a fair reflection of play up to that point in the tie.

A moment of madness from Alexis Sanchez to get sent off moments later quickly upended the dynamic of the tie, and this was not necessarily the only instance in which the Nerazzurri seemed to get the finer details wrong.

A couple key defensive switch-offs and a lack of clinical finishing ultimately put the tie beyond Inter more than the red card for Sanchez did, and Martinez wants to keep working to improve.

Complimented on his goal, the striker responded “Thank you very much but it didn’t help, it was just a couple minutes and then we were down to ten.”

“We fought, left our heart, personality, and character out on the pitch, but it wasn’t enough and we were lacking something to go through,” he continued.

Of the team’s progression in Europe, Martinez said that “We’re happy about it, but we must try to improve and be more focused on the details which change these games.”

“We must try to improve in that respect because in every other aspect we’ve given our all,” he added.

He concluded that “Now we have to turn the page immediately, try to regain energy, including mentally, to face a very tough match [against Torino] and then think about the Coppa Italia. Those are two important competition where we want to finish as high as possible.”
