Inter Milan coach Conte: We will attack Borussia Dortmund

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte says he won't change his ways ahead of their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Inter need a win tonight to get their campaign on track.

Conte says: “To talk about this as already a Final seems exaggerated.

“It's certainly an important game against a strong team, but it's still just a game. We need to win, but Finals arrive later...

“There's a need to pick up an important result in every game, so our approach won't change tomorrow, not even our idea or mentality.

“Just like I don't talk about my own, I won't talk about our opponents either, otherwise the glass is always half full for the others...

“We prefer to think about ourselves: we conceded three goals against Sassuolo through the balls we lost.

“We must be careful against Borussia because they're very good on the break. We know this, but we want to play our football too.

“I don't go back, this is my idea of football. Going backwards would mean standing in a line behind the ball and waiting to be slapped.

“We want to slap them instead."
