MAXWELL: "A CONFIDENCE-BOOSTING GOAL"

Brazilian wing-back on his wonder goal against Parma

MILAN - Maxwell lit up a grey Milan afternoon with a splendid solo goal against Parma - his first for Inter. "I'm really happy about the goal, but most of all I'm happy because we won," said the Brazilian left-back. "And I'm really happy for what I have managed to do after a long time out and what has been a difficult time in my career.

"Was today's my best goal? I'm not sure if it was the best, but it's certainly the most important. This goal gives me lots of confidence after the bad period, I want to dedicate it to all those who have helped me. I had to work very hard to recover, physically it was very difficult and I even thought I wouldn't return. Inter have given me lots of strength to continue. I'm happy it's in the past now, and I want to do a lot more for this team.

"The Scudetto close? We're keeping our feet on the ground. We still have to win a lot of points to be  mathematically sure of winning the title."
