Inter boss Inzaghi sends message to Milan after derby: “They were great opponents”

By Oliver Fisher -

Inter boss Simone Inzaghi praised AC Milan after his side beat them 2-1 in the derby last night to clinch the league title.

The damage was done with the two goals inside the first 25 minutes, with Francesco Acerbi scoring from a corner and then Marcus Thuram doubling the advantage with a shot from the edge of the box, rendering Fikayo Tomori’s late tap-in a mere consolation.

Inzaghi entered the press conference room at San Siro after the game understandably beaming and his comments were relayed by Football Italia.

“It’s a nice feeling that I want to share with everyone in the Interworld, from the fans to the President. I’ve already spoken to him,” he said.

“A thought for my family too. My wife, my sons. My limit is that I can’t leave work outside my home. A thought for staff members, too: I want to share this target with all of them.

“These people and the passion of our fans give me great satisfaction. It was hard to imagine a group like this, but the work and availability of these players have made all this possible.

“I want to share this with everyone. Everyone contributed to this achievement. Inter fans deserve it. They’ve always been extraordinary in victories and defeats.”

Inzaghi also spoke about Milan following what was a feisty encounter that saw Theo Hernandez and Davide Calabria sent off as well as Denzel Dumfries.

“I want to congratulate Milan. Mentally, it was not an easy game for them. They fought hard until the end. They were great opponents and they’ll be as such in the future as well.

“We wanted to win it tonight. We had great feelings, nobody complained when we trained in the morning [before the derby]. We worked on details that were important during the match. We put in a smart performance and could have scored more goals in the first half.”

Inzaghi has now won six trophies with Inter and has finally ticked off the Serie A title, meaning that it has been a very good recent period for the blue side of the city, something that Milan now have to aim to try and emulate or even better.

“We have to analyse the three years. We won the Scudetto and the Supercoppa for the third year running. But I remember how the team played in the first Champions League match against Real Madrid.

“The lads have understood the principles and what I expect from them. These three years have been incredible. We probably don’t realise it now. At least, perhaps I still don’t realise it, but I am extremely happy for all those who were here to celebrate tonight.”

  1. Let’s see if he’s still beaming when either the club goes bankrupt and is forced to sell all their star players, or they’re investigated for fraud and have to hand us this scudetto. (A pipe dream I know….)

      1. Just one handed to them “technically” but the repercussions from their involvement in Calciopoli almost destroyed Italian football. And they’re still at – dubious referring decisions all season and hiring an Inter investigator to try and bring down RedBird…

    1. Would you want it? I don’t think I would.

      Overall this is a good thing for us…it might just be the kick we need. Those players having to watch themselves get schooled by inter and then watch them celebrate….

      We Can’t deny that they are a much better team than we are…

    2. We’ll need a Milan shareholder to drum up some charges against them and act like it’s an independent investigation 👌
