Inter Milan coach Conte not satisfied after beating Cagliari

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte wasn't satisfied after their 2-1 defeat of Cagliari.

Stefano Sensi was inspirational for Inter, the midfielder assisting Lautaro Martinez and earning Romelu Lukaku's penalty.

Conte said, “It was a different game to the win against Lecce, as I had warned everyone this would be tough. Coming to Cagliari is never a walk in the park.

“Let it be known, I am very demanding and there is a lot we need to do in order to improve, but I also say we are glad to have won in a difficult arena.

Cagliari played their game and did it well, but this is a very important result, as it carries on from the performance against Lecce, but we should've 'killed' it more after conceding their equaliser. We did well to get back on top, but there's more we can do.

“This team was built to play with midfielders pushing forward into the channels, like Matias Vecino, Stefano Sensi, Roberto Gagliardini and Nicolò Barella.

Alexis Sanchez is an excellent player and he is in decent shape, but will go on international duty now and play only the first game with Chile against Argentina, put some minutes in his legs. We must get him back to the level he was at Udinese and Barcelona."

He added: “Sensi is a different type of player, someone who sees the game beautifully, you tell him something and he gets it straight away. Every Coach would love to have someone like Sensi in their team."
