Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi hailed his players after their Supercoppa triumph against Juventus.
Inter won 2-1, with Alexis Sanchez grabbing an injury-time winner.
“He was very happy, he congratulated us and the players asked for a gift,” he stated. “I think he’ll make them happy.
“We came up against a great team who showed what Juve are all about. They didn’t give us too many problems, but we also played a great match.
“They were always in it, they wanted to win. Beating them is never easy, even if I’ve done it before against them in the Supercoppa. I’m very happy with how things went.”
Of goalscoring hero Alexis Sanchez, Inzaghi stated, “I think everyone always wants to play, from time to time I have to make decisions.
“Remember that Gagliardini was the best player against Lazio, but he didn’t play a single minute here. I have four very good forwards, today Vidal also contributed, and Dimarco was important for the decisive goal.”
He added, “We have to keep on going like this, Inter hadn’t won a Super Cup for twelve years. It’s been too long for this club.”
