Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has called AC Milan’s mentality into question following the Champions League semi-final clash between the two sides.
Speaking as a part of the Champions League Magazine (via Milan News), the Argentine striker explained that he thinks the Nerazzurri had a much better attitude than the Rossoneri across the two legs.
Inter won the first leg of the tie 2-0, thanks to quickfire goals at the beginning of the game by Edin Dzeko and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. They then won the second leg 1-0 to book their spot in the final against Manchester City, with Martinez being the goalscorer.
As part of the interview, Martinez said: “We were far superior to Milan for attitude, going two goals up made us feel relaxed for the return leg in front of our home crowd.”
Speaking specifically about his goal in the second leg at San Siro, the World Cup-winning striker explained that it was one of the most important goals of his career.
“One of the most important of my career, not for the beauty but for the importance and the story behind it. They are unique feelings, sensations that are difficult to describe,” he said.
Inter will be taking on Manchester City in Istanbul as they search for a fourth Champions League triumph.
