Inter Milan coach Conte: I never said second place was bad

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte was pleased with their 3-0 defeat of Genoa.

Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace around the Alexis Sanchez strike off the underside of the bar as Inter moved into second-place.

“I didn't say second place was bad, it's just if you want to see the glass half-empty or half-full," the coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“I don't know why, people lately always wanted to see it half-empty. The numbers are clear, these lads are doing great things and of course we must improve, but at the same time congratulate these players, as they keep pushing.

“It's a pity about some games, but there are seasons when you don't reap what you sow and that's what happened to Inter. We want to go as far as possible and get the best statistics we can. Someone else will win the Scudetto, but we must have the ambition of aiming as high as possible."
