Inter Milan coach Inzaghi on 7-goal thriller at Fiorentina: Players never stopped believing

Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi hailed their spirit for victory at Fiorentina.

The Viola had come back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2, then Luka Jovic’s volley for 3-3 at the 89th minute.

But Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored with the aid of a misplaced Lorenzo Venuti clearance for Inter’s winner.

“We were caught twice, the team never stopped believing,” Inzaghi told Sky Italia.

“Our first 35 minutes up until the penalty were excellent, then we lost our shape a little, but those who came off the bench gave us a big hand. This was a very big signal we sent out tonight, as Fiorentina are a tough side.

“We were 2-0 up and seemed to be in control, then lost our cool after their goal, but we should’ve carried on and kept control of the match. The important thing was that we believed to the end, even with 35,000 people in the stadium cheering on our opponents.

“At this moment, we have players who are young and have great potential, but it’s not easy to play in Barcelona without their experience.

“I said when people asked about Lautaro Martinez not scoring in seven games that I was not worried, as he kept getting the chances and would break through eventually.

“Correa did what he needed to tonight, I liked the first 55 minutes, he was working for the team and in the right position. Naturally, he doesn’t get the regular playing time he did at Lazio and had a few injuries, but he is working hard.”
