Inter Milan coach Spalletti satisfied with victory over Empoli

Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti was satisfied with victory over Empoli.

The 2-1 win secured Champions League qualification, but also relegated the Tuscans.

“I wasn't surprised, we had a good game," Spalletti said after the game.

“There was so much tension and pressure in getting to this game. This stadium is used to victories and connects everything to memories of the past, but tonight we had to suffer and we put in heart.

“I'm sorry for Empoli, I have ties and friends there. They certainly deserved to stay up, but we also deserved to reach the Champions League.

“When decisions are made, everyone reacts in their own way. Problems come when situations leave you hanging on, not when you face them.

“I don't know if I'll leave Inter. (Antonio) Conte was called into question at Juve after the game against Ajax."
