Spalletti: 'No Scudetto promises'

Luciano Spalletti refused to discuss Inter’s Scudetto ambitions after two straight wins. “I don’t feel like making promises.”

“Winning both opening games naturally creates more expectations, but I would’ve said the same things regardless of the results,” insisted Spalletti in his Press conference.

“The important thing is to show which path you want to go down. You can’t modify the past, but you can adjust for the future.

“I know the media work to create phenomenons and failures. If you make 10 Coaches say they want to win the Scudetto, you have created nine who failed.

“We want to talk about football, you want to talk about results and targets. I don’t feel like making promises. I will only say that we must try to win every game. We won’t settle for anything, but that must be the intention.

“The important thing is to be a team and think as a unit. If one player scored 25 goals, but the team finishes outside the European places, what result is that for Inter? Do you put an individual’s goal tally in the trophy cabinet?

“There were too many points separating us from the top sides last season and to close that gap we need to beat teams like Spal.

“Our job is to make our mark on every game and I am confident we will make our mark tomorrow, to reward fans for their faith.”
