Sulley Muntari tapped home a confusing winner for Inter and fellow midfielder Stankovic said afterwards: "It is a great joy, as this was almost a perfect match. We didn't give them an inch and it is a wonderful performance from the team.
"Our physical strength in the end came out even more than our quality, so did our character, as we had to battle for every ball."
"The Coach put me in front of our three midfielders to push two of theirs and go into the space opened up by our strikers. I think I did it pretty well.
"I am not really a trequartista, as that requires quality and technique. Amongst all the fight, grit, determination and hard work, I get a shot out every now and then!"
