Claudio Ranieri feels the victory over Lille will help Inter get past their current difficulties. “With consistency the last fears will disappear too.”
The Nerazzurri have struggled badly in Serie A and are near the relegation zone, but are practically qualified for the Champions League knockouts thanks to three consecutive wins.
“Determination and grit are the qualities I really liked about my team this evening. I am really happy with the performance, as these lads put feeling into it,” said the Coach.
Walter Samuel and Diego Milito secured the 2-1 result, though El Principe missed an open goal and hit the bar.
“Milito is an emblem of the team who wanted to battle, reacted to difficulties and finally managed to score his goal.
“We had done well against Juventus on Saturday and I asked the lads to play in much the same style. They gave me the response I was looking for and sent many positive vibes.
“With consistency you'll see that the last fears will disappear too.”
CSKA Moscow and Trabzonspor drew 0-0 tonight, so Inter now have a four-point lead at the top of Group B.
