Inter Milan

 players a sense of "self-believe":

“In order to beat a team like Juventus, which for all the Italian clubs are the reference point, we have to put in a great performance


“We did that this evening. We prepared well and it’s satisfying to see that we were right about the things we thought could hurt Juventus. The lads followed the plan perfectly and I am very happy for them, because these are games that must give you self-belief, let you understand you are on the right path.

“We already saw fruits of this process last season, we are continuing to see them this term. Juventus were an important reference point, a side that dominated Serie A for nine years, having done exceptional work both on the field and as a club.”

He then added:

“This is a start for us, but beating Juventus with such great champions, including Cristiano Ronaldo, should give you the belief that you are on the right track. I had never beaten Juventus in my coaching career. I always got hammered, and deservedly, so this is progress.”

He also claimed that there could have been more than 2 goals, but missed opportunities to score took the chance away:

“We didn’t get goals from the strikers today, but I think it was mainly bad luck, as Lautaro and Romelu had the chances. This is a team that creates a great deal of scoring opportunities, but we don’t have the killer instinct, so we usually need three or four chances to score.

The 51-year-old then said:

“We must try to do our best, make the fans proud, and then we’ll see. I already knew from August that there were some problems. I hope the situation can be resolved in the best way.

“As I said, we hope it all goes in the best way for Inter and for all of us.”
