Inter Milan coach Conte: Alexis deserves better from me; a very important player

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte admits Alexis Sanchez deserves better from him.

The Chile international has impressed when called upon by Conte, though he has failed to find a consistent place in the starting XI this season.

After victory over Sassuolo, Conte remarked last night: "Lautaro and Lukaku are doing very well but I would also like to underline Sanchez's tests: at this moment he deserves much more.

"I'm honest and I say he was in trouble, now he's back to being a very important player and I said it to him too. I praise his spirit, he is an important element and I want to give him praise because he deserves it.

"He is ready to play from the start, during the match and today he deserved the goal."
