Inter coach Simone Inzaghi admitted that his side were entering a delicate moment in their season, but Champions League opponents AC Milan were also in the same position.

In an interview with Italian radio broadcaster Rai Radio 1 after yesterday’s 2-0 win over Roma in Serie A, and as reported by FCInterNews, Inzaghi looked ahead towards the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Milan, whilst also admitting that his side had done well to overcome the Giallorossi.

“We knew it would be a very difficult game, I congratulate the lads who are to be embraced one by one because since April 1 we have been playing every three days,” Inzaghi declared.

“I am happy with everyone, great praise should be given because they are playing matches of a high quality.

“We played well. But beyond goals scored and goals conceded is the chorus of the team, a group that knows it must be united to come out of difficulty, as happened against Roma.”

Inter are facing Milan for a place in the Champions League final for the first time since 2010, whilst the Rossoneri have not contested a final since 2007, and Inzaghi was expecting a tight encounter.

“It will be a very delicate game for both teams. We arrive there after a long journey, for both of us it is a semi-final that we wanted and got. Now we will play it each with our own weapons,” the former Lazio coach continued.

“I never had problems of squad depth, now in attack and midfield we have it while in defence and on the wings we are more short of options. There are still 72 hours left and then I will decide very calmly, I hope to always have problems of choice.”

Meanwhile, Inter’s win over Roma saw Inzaghi come up against iconic former Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho, and revealed that the Portuguese had wished him well ahead of the semi-final.

“We know it is very important. With Mourinho there is great respect, we greeted each other and wished each other good luck,” he added.

Inter secured the victory over Roma courtesy of goals from Federico Dimarco and Romelu Lukaku.
