The Inter Milan coach reacted after the victory of his team at Benfica on Tuesday evening in the quarter-finals of the Champions League (2-0).
Simone Inzaghi (Inter Milan coach, winner of Benfica Lisbon 2-0 in the quarter-final first leg of the Champions League):
“I am very satisfied, we are closer to the semi-finals, but there is a second leg which will be difficult. We have a nice advantage, but there is still a meeting. Benfica fell on an Inter with will and guts. Benfica is a very strong team, we will have to play the same game in Milan. I’m also happy with the first half, because playing here against such a strong team is difficult, but it’s clear that our first goal gave us a lot of courage. It’s the third match in ten days, the schedule is hellish, but we are Inter, we don’t leave any competition aside, whether it’s the championship, the Champions League or the Italian Cup. I’m used to criticism, it’s part of the job, what I wanted was a response from my players. We heard and read a lot of things, but we were quiet and tonight you saw our performance. The attackers worked very well, whether it was Lukaku or the others. Now I have all the attackers available, all four are capable of playing at a very high level.»
