Conte happy with Inter Milan attacker; ponders transfer deadline

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was pleased with their attacking approach for victory over Fiorentina.

The Nerazzurri defeated the Viola 4-3 on the weekend.

“I liked the match a lot and I also told the lads," said Conte. “In attack we played good football and defensively we were aggressive.

“In some circumstances we didn't have the right balance, then the more we create alternatives up front, the less predictable we will be.

“Absence has nothing to do with it, I had fun on Saturday. Inevitably, we must improve, but also abroad, teams like Manchester City and Bayern score a lot of goals because they offer attacking football.

“You risk. We continue to offer our football, which is fun, but still be more careful at the back."

The Inter coach also spoke of the summer market.

He added: “The managers should respond to the questions about the market. All the coaches can't wait for the market to close.

“It's inevitable that as long as it remains open, true or false, the news can undermine the serenity of the players, who need stability.

“The managers will do their job in the best way."
