Inter Milan coach Spalletti pleased with victory over Parma

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti was pleased with victory over Parma on Saturday.

Lautaro Martinez came off the bench and within 120 seconds had scored the decisive goal at the Tardini.

“We have the potential to overcome difficult moments. Clearly, at times we cannot handle the pressure of what others try to place on our shoulders," Spalletti told DAZN.

“This time we were well-organised. Parma tried to nibble at us in the first half, but they are unaccustomed to being given the initiative. When you get drawn in by their passing, you lose the ball and find yourself up against a deadly counter-attack."

Radja Nainggolan provided the assist for Lautaro Martinez and seemed to be a little closer to his old self.

“He showed some of the old breakaways as a defensive playmaker, so ensured Parma could only attempt shots that Milan Skriniar and Stefan de Vrij interpreted very well.

Ivan Perisic is capable of using both feet, so he needs to practice more on his right-foot finishing."
