Inter Milan coach Conte: 2-goal Alexis deserved chance against Parma

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was delighted with two goal Alexis Sanchez after victory over Parma.

The Nerazzurri won 2-1 last night.

Conte said, “As I said, he is in the best condition we've ever seen him at the moment. We were patient with him too. He knows only hard work will take him to a certain level, and now Romelu and Lautaro know that Sanchez is right behind them too. It's important for us to create these situations with competition for places.

“Don't forget for a year-and-a-half we had to carry on with just Lukaku and Lautaro, nobody else. We had Sebastiano Esposito last season, he's now in Serie B at Venezia.

“I've never had any choices to make here. I just had to pray and hope nobody got injured. Now I actually have some choice and it's a wonderful feeling.

“The players know I am democratic, I choose who deserves it and they all feel they are involved in this project."
