Commenting upon last night CL victory over Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte stated: “It’s a vital win. It really got on the tactical plan. Borussia Dortmund changed their playing system, because they were afraid of our attacking play: they switched to a five-man defence ,and tried to mirror us. We did well to change the way we played, and build on our lead, when they went back to a 4-2-3-1. I’m happy because the team showed excellent maturity, and managed the moments in the game very well.

Our situation wasn’t an easy one. We had a few injuries, and the risk was we’d pay for this. Instead, we put in an excellent performance. I’m really happy for my players because these nights are the reward for the sacrifices made. Last year, under Luciano Spalletti, the boys worked a lot to get qualified for the Champions League, and it’s only right that we try to keep on such path. We know that we’re not one of the favourites, but we want to be in the game for as long as we can. We’re very much alive. We now have less than three days to recover, ahead of our match against Parma, who are on an excellent run. Unfortunately, we can’t enjoy this result too much, we’ll be back on the pitch on Saturday.

Sebastiano Esposito? I’ve said it on more than one occasion, he’s only 17 years old but I have full confidence in him. I’m sorry about the fact that he won’t be involved in the Under-17 World Cup, but he’s for all intents and purposes a first-team player for us. He needs to keep on going down the path he’s on, and lay low in doing so”.
