Inter Milan coach Conte happy to count on teen pair Esposito and Agoume

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte is happy to count on teenage pair Sebastiano Esposito and Lucien Agoume.

Conte is pleased to have handed both teens their Inter debut.

He said, “Those two have had the opportunity to train with us and have had a significant development, especially Esposito, but also Agoume.

“They are young, they have deservedly made their debuts. They are growing up and are two guys who could potentially become part of the foundations at Inter for years to come.

“I believe in them, I hope and know that, regardless of everything, the answer will always be positive. They always give their all.

“Since the beginning of the year, our goal has always been to become a credible team," he added. “The opponents should know that it will be a tough game against us.

“We have started a journey and are still working on it. We know very well that along the way you can hit a rough patch and obstacles that will try to stop you. We must be good at continuing through those.

“It will need patience, mostly from me. We must build, sometimes even if you win you are destroying something. Sometimes the win deceives you and you know that underneath you are being destroyed.

“We must lay a solid and lasting foundation, something that can become important over time.

“In five months, we've worked hard, given a lot and spending a lot. I have never found anything already prepared, that's my story. We are doing a great job.

“It will be important to leave a trace, as I have already said. Work culture and professionalism. We will have to leave this behind when they get tired of us."
