“They helped me. And I’m grateful for everything they’ve done.”

“In football, you never know what will happen,” Martinez contract. “But I’m certain that my family is also doing well here. My desire is to extend my contract with Inter.”

On winning the Serie A title – the twentieth in Inter’s history – Martinez noted that “Two years ago we were close to the second star.”

“This season, it was our main objective.”

“We worked a lot, and suffered a lot. And after all that work and sacrifice, we made it.”

As far as clinching the title against AC Milan in the derby, Martinez said that “It’s become something beautiful and important for us.”

“Winning the second star like that, against Milan and in the city of Milan, was special,” the Inter captain said.

“This had never happened before. We took advantage of our opportunity, and made history for this great club.”

“On the day of the match we went out to train in the rain,” Martinez noted.

“We spent an hour and a half working on the details.”

“We suffered a lot when Milan won the title,” the Inter captain admitted. “So for us it was a special day that we’ll never forget.”
