Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic doesn’t feel that his getting on the scoresheet is important, but that being able to help the team to three points against Torino is what matters.
Speaking to InterTV after the Nerazzurri’s 1-0 win over the Granata, the 29-year-old gave his immediate reaction to the win, the team’s first in three matches, emphasizing the significance of the result over his own goalscoring exploits.
Brozovic got on the scoresheet for the second Serie A match in a row, and while his opener against AC Milan was cancelled out as the Rossoneri won 3-2 on the night, this time the Croat proved to be the match-winner.
Inter had pushed and pushed without managing to find a way through, but Brozovic latched onto an excellent Nicolo Barella late on in the match and put a deft touch on the ball to put it past Torino keeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, allowing his teammates and the fans to breathe a huge sigh of relief.
“This win is really important, we know how opponents play against Inter,” Brozovic said. “We managed to win and that’s the thing that’s most important.”
“The heart is always there, my goal is not important,” he continued, “the most important thing is that the team wins.”
He concluded that “We must go on winning as many games as possible. In three days we will play in the Champions League straight away, it will be another great match. Today we enjoy this win and then from tomorrow we’ll start preparing for the match against Viktoria Plzen.”
