Inter manager Antonio Conte was happy with his side’s performance after they took a big step toward winning the Scudetto by winning Bologna on Saturday.
scored his 20th Serie A goal of the season to earn the Nerazzurri a 1-0 win atBologna
on Saturday and send the Milan club eight points clear on top of the table with a game in hand.
“Inevitably, as we get closer to the finish line, every victory weighs more and more,”
told Sky Sport Italia
“Winning in Bologna against a team that plays good football and presses you hard, that was certainly a big step forward. Bologna did very well, they have an excellent coach in Sinisa Mihajlovic and it wasn’t easy. This was also a very long day for us, as we were in the hotel watching Milan’s game at lunch, then I watched Sassuolo against Roma. Juventus played just before us, so I didn’t see that one.”
However, Conte refused to admit his celebration in the locker room were for the title and insisted that Inter have not achieved anything yet.
“No, it cannot be a Scudetto celebration, because we have to earn that on the pitch and it needs to be mathematically certain. There are 10 games to go for us, nine for some others, and 27-30 points up for grabs.
“We know full well that Serie A is very difficult and every match is a battle to get the victory. The closer to we get to the finish line, the clearer we can see the prize at the end. Everyone is looking at that direction and we see it from a different angle to the others right now, but we still have it all to do. We’ve achieved nothing yet.”
