The thoughts of the Nerazzurri President after Inter's victory over Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia final
Inter emerged victorious at the Olimpico to win the Coppa Italia for the ninth time in the Club's history. It's the fifth trophy that the Nerazzurri have won since Steven Zhang became President.
This is what he had to say after the game against Fiorentina:
"I’m so proud of everyone, the team and all the staff. That’s our fifth trophy since we’ve been here, and this shows how everybody’s mentality has grown; it’s a winning mentality."
Following tonight's triumph, Steven Zhang has become the third-most successful President in Inter's history in terms of trophies won, drawing level with Giacinto Facchetti in this regard:
"It means we’ve done some great work in the last few years. It’s an honour to be close to the Moratti family, who are in the hearts of all Inter fans. Our objective always needs to be to win every trophy. Our results are born from collective work, which has allowed us to become competitive again in Italy and Europe. Obviously, we’ll be up a great team in the Champions League final, but we didn’t have this mentality when we began our journey seven years ago. We’ve grown so much and now have the right qualities to go for it.
"One word that sums up Inter? Bravery. Inter is brave in every situation, in every competition and in life. We dedicate this win to all our supporters and all the people who work within the Club. They make all of this possible as we look to make winning a habit. Our goal must always be to win every trophy. Inzaghi? The contribution of the coach, who has led us to the Champions League final, is vital when it comes to winning trophies. We’ll certainly continue with Simone Inzaghi. Heading to Istanbul to play the Champions League final is vital, but first we need to finish the league season. As always, the players will give everything. I’m proud to say that Inter has returned to the top. We’re always competitive, we’ve won finals and we’ve always fought until the very end in every competition. It’s something we’ve been working on for many years, and we’re happy that we’re doing what we vowed to do.”
