Barella hails Inter Milan courage for victory over Bayer Leverkusen

Nicolò Barella hailed Inter Milan's courage for their 2-1 Europa League quarterfinal win over Bayer Leverkusen.

Inter won 2-1 thanks to Barella and Romelu Lukaku goals, as Kai Havertz pulled one back.

“We proved to everyone who said we weren't a team that we are a great group and we've got b***s," he told Sky Sport Italia, before discussing one of two penaltied Inter were denied.

“I was on the ground and didn't even see the ball, it just hit me. Never mind, we got the result and are in the semi-final. We could've killed it off earlier and rested a little more, but Bayer Leverkusen are a very strong side and caused us problems.

“Now we have proved ourselves as a team and want to reach the Final. Just as we respect everyone in the competition, they have to worry about us too."
