Inter goalkeeper Andre Onana feels that the team are back in the Serie A title race, and in the hunt for other trophies, after what they showed to beat Napoli yesterday.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, via FCInterNews, the 26-year-old gave the view that the Nerazzurri proved that they can go up against even the best teams by beating the Partenopei 1-0.
Napoli will have looked like a daunting test for Onana and his teammates, with the Neapolitans having gone the first part of the season without defeat in the league to establish a big lead at the top of the Serie A table.
However, on the pitch it was Inter who looked the superior side in virtually all phases of play, well worth their 1-0 margin of victory.
As far as Onana is concerned, this was evidence that the Nerazzurri cannot be counted out against even the absolute highest-quality opposition.
“I think that in playing like this we showed we can go up against anyone,” the Cameroonian said after the match.
“I’m happy, very happy for the great work that the team has put in.”
“Now we’re already looking forward to the next match,” he added.
Asked if he thinks the Serie A title race is back on, Onana replied “Yes, I think so.”
“It was massively important to win today,” he continued, “I’m glad we did so.”
“It was a decisive match for the Serie A title race, not just for us, but for everyone.”
