head-coach, Antonio Conte, insisted that

must put more effort into scoring following their Coppa Italia semi-final defeat to



The Chilean has only been able to score on two occasions in his 21 appearances with Inter this season and though Conte was hoping that Sanchez would make up for

Romelu Lukaku

’s absence, he was faced with nothing but disappointment.

Criticizing the player, Conte said:

"I don't know if he was tired, of course he tried to give his best in the game, but he has to be more clinical when it comes to scoring goals. Numbers for [judging] the strikers are merciless, and his numbers must be better."

The 32-year-old, who was previously considered in a swap deal for



Edin Dzeko

, needs to regain his form with Inter, as told by Conte back in January.

“I won’t talk about Edin Dzeko to Inter because he’s a Roma player. If there’s some players unhappy here, we’ll be ready to open negotiations. I’m not asking to sign Dzeko, it’s up to the club. Sanchez is our player, I want him to be focused on the next match,"

he said.
