Inter Milan coach Conte slams long ball Getafe: It'll be a dirty game

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte has taken aim at Getafe's style of play ahead of their Europa League clash.

Conte is expecting a physical content against the LaLiga outfit.

He declared, "Now we are playing this tournament: we are ready, we know that a tough opponent awaits us and that it will be a 'dirty' match, but we have the right mindset.

"We studied them, before the greats they played unspectacular matches in which, however, their opponents suffered to get good results. They look for long passes, they work with contested balls, the forwards are physically strong and help in the defensive phase and in the transitions.

"We are going to have to show that we deserve to qualify."
