Lautaro Martinez: "There are pressures and there always will be"
Inter defeated Salernitana, and the result reflected the team's growth since their slow start to the season, according to midfielder Lautaro Martinez.
's 2-0 win over Salernitana on Sunday, as interpreted by Lautaro Martinez, is evidence that the team has grown as a result of open discussions in the locker room during their rough patch.
Despite starting the season with five losses in ten games, the Nerazzurri are now four games unbeaten after their victory at San Siro.Alessandro Bastoni
told Sky Italia that pregame preparations for Sunday's game were aided by serious discussions between the team's members.
According to Bastoni, a realisation that too many players were whining about other players helped prompt a shift in mindset at Inter. Martinez, who scored the game's opening goal on Sunday, did not want to get into details, but he does believe Inter has moved past its problems. He told Sky Italia, "
What we say in the locker room stays there," he said to Sky Italia. "We talked a lot after the defeats, we started working and it shows on the pitch.
"This victory means that we have grown and matured after the match against
at home. We are fine, we have to continue like this.
" Asked if Inter are "back"
: "We are on the right path, we have moved on."
Though Inter's early season troubles put pressure on head coach
, he claims he was never very concerned because he knows that such scrutiny is par for the course in his position. What he actually said was:
"It is normal that things weren't working out, we looked at 84 points last year as a defeat, behind Milan.
"We come from three wins and a draw – what I look at now is on the field. There are pressures and there always will be – I know what job I'm doing. We had control of this match from the start to the end. We have to continue like this, things are going well and they have to get better."
