Škriniar insists Inter deserved to beat Atalanta


Milan Škriniar was one of several Inter players who faced the media in the immediate aftermath of last night’s goalless draw at home to Atalanta. The result leaves the Nerazzurri in pole position to secure third place and, with that, an automatic spot in next season’s UEFA Champions League group stage. Here is what the Slovak defender had to say on his side’s display in front of a packed San Siro crowd:

“I think we created more chances than them and we deserved to win this game. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to score but we did very well physically. Compared to the previous meeting, we played better. We didn’t concede and this is always important for us. There are lots of games left and we have to try to win them all. We have a lead in the Champions League race but we can’t think about it, we just have to make it over the line. Now, we’re going to Frosinone and they’re fighting to stay up. It will be a tough game but we’ll absolutely have to win it.”

Ghanaian full-back Kwadwo Asamoah also offered his thoughts on proceedings: “Everyone had a good game against a team that is difficult to face because they ask a lot of you in one-on-one situations and press hard. In the first 20 minutes, we created loads but we weren’t able to break the deadlock. I think however that we can improve further. It’s not easy to play every three days, we’re working a lot because there’s not long to go and we all want to be ready and help the team. Physically, I feel good. Every game is hard, Frosinone won in Florence and we know it won’t be easy, they’ll be playing at home. As I said, it’s important for everyone to be available for the coach so that we can make the Champions League.”

Finally, Danilo D’Ambrosio commented on the race to qualify for Europe’s premier club competition: “We need to continue the work we started last year, we’ve got more responsibilities. Playing big games at San Siro helps us because the crowd is always on our side, and there are always many fans supporting us. First and foremost, we need to concentrate on Frosinone, who are looking to avoid relegation. It’ll be a very tough match.”
