Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic feels that the win over Torino was an important win to give hope to the team and also to the fans after some poor recent form.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the match, the 29-year-old gave his immediate reaction to the match and explained that the team had had a team meeting in Appiano Gentile where they talked about how to get back on track but that it was nothing more than that.

Brozovic was Inter’s match-winner against Torino, with the Torino’s delicate finish from a Nicolo Barella cross into the box allowing the team to breathe a deep sigh of relief in a match which looked as though it could be heading to sharing the points with the Granata.

In isolation this would not have been the worst result, but given that the Nerazzurri had already lost matches to the likes of Lazio and AC Milan as well as getting their Champions League group stage campaign to a bad start with a loss to Bayern Munich, the feeling is that the win was absolutely essential.

Brozovic called it “A really important victory. We knew that the match was going to be tough, a lot of man-to-man duels. We’ve been struggling, so these are three really significant points.”

“We have to work harder,” he continued, “play with more energy in our legs, in some matches we haven’t been able to play the way we know how to.”

“Now we have to look forward and keep winning,” he added.

Asked if he thought the win was a response to the meeting in Appiano, the midfielder said that “We just talked there, nothing more than that.”

And of coach Simone Inzaghi, Brozovic said that “This win was for him, for all of us, and for all the Inter fans.”
