APPIANO GENTILE – Luciano Spalletti responded to questions at the Inter Media House in Appiano Gentile during the pre-match press conference ahead of the Nerazzurri’s trip to Sardinia for Cagliari vs. Inter.
“I would like to start by offering congratulations to Stefano Vecchi for the Youth League,” he began. “He’s obtained a result through great organisation and great work. We often ask for the Primavera to be available for us as we take players during the week. He’s a great colleague for how cooperative he is.”
“This team understands the moments in which it has to strike, it knows when to give its all. We’re competing with teams who are aiming to set records, we’re important figures in a season where the table is tight and the stakes are very high. Our players know very well what the objective has to be, we need to have ambition.”
“We need to always play without fear, you can’t lower your guard by a centimetre. I’ve been asked Gagliardini and Vecino, I also remember the entrances of Joao Mario of the bench with his quality and Brozovic before he was stopped by his injury. We have players in that area who are all starters.”
“With players, people know the price but not the value. You’ll see that by the end of the year, there will be games and it will be there for everyone to see. Santon is a complete player. Joao Mario is totally part of the cause. Icardi is in love with Inter. The city, his teammates, the club and the fans, he’s attached to it all in a very strong way.”
