Conte delighted as Inter Milan fire six past Crotone

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was delighted to kickoff 2021 with a 6-2 thumping of Crotone.

Although Crotone had taken the lead and were 2-2 at half-time, the Nerazzurri stepped on the gas to eventually win 6-2 with a Lautaro Martinez hat-trick.

“There was a good response today and I felt we started the right way by being aggressive. Crotone pushed seven players up and surprised us on the corner," Conte told Sky Sport Italia.

“We did well to turn it around, then a naïve error on the penalty could've sparked anxiety, but the lads instead did really well to stay focused, keep creating scoring opportunities and bring home another victory."

Lukaku went off with a muscular issue in his thigh just after scoring the goal.

“Romelu felt a slight muscular problem in his quadricep, we'll see if he is at risk against Sampdoria or not. As soon as he felt that twinge, we immediately substituted him, so hopefully it's nothing serious."
