Conte lavishes praise on Inter
Inter Milan head coach Antonio Conte has hailed his side after they came back from two goals down to beat rivals AC Milan 4-2 in the Serie A.
The Nerazzurri, who are currently top of Serie A – level on points with Juventus, had to fight back from two-goals down in the first-half after Ante Rebic and Zlatan Ibrahimovic put AC Milan ahead.
Conte’s resilient side clinched an impressive win courtesy of goals from Marcelo Brozovic, Matias Vecino, Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku in the second half and the 50-year-old Italian was full of praise for his players.
“It was a special night, that’s for sure. The first half saw us in real difficulty, perhaps more than we’ve ever been this season, and there was the risk of a hammering.
“Instead, we did well to get the balance back, to understand where we had to improve, to have faith in what we were doing and the credit goes to these lads.
“Aside from the result, I am happy to see them resist under blows and turn it around, as that means they are preparing for something truly important.
“We can’t achieve everything from one day to the next, but we are building. These lads proved they have great strength and guts today.”
