Inter Milan coach Conte on Genoa win: Our hard work now paying off

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

Romalu Lukaku, Matteo Darmian and Alexis Sanchez struck for the Serie A leaders.

Conte said, “We played against a Genoa side in great shape who I think had earned just one fewer point than we did in this period.

“We had the right approach, allowing Genoa little other than a few crosses. We scored three goals, Mattia Perin had to make several big saves, so we are happy.

“All the work is paying off, it had already started to last year, but the team is developing belief in its capabilities, understanding the situations both on and off the ball, when to be aggressive, when to hold possession.

“We know there are 14 games to go. As I said, facing Genoa and Parma seems easy on paper, but we have to prove that we are a team who always have our ears pricked for danger, not just in the big games, so we can give the Inter fans the joy they deserve."
