Inter Milan defender Darmian: Scudetto isn't in our pockets yet

Inter Milan defender Matteo Darmian says they cannot get carried away being 11 points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

Darmian was speaking after victory over Sassuolo.

“I had already played in the back-three in the past with (Antonio) Conte in the national team," Darmian told DAZN. “I made myself available to the team, trying to do my best.

“It went well, and we took home a very important win.

“We are a good group and we show it weekly. I have always made myself available and I always try to give my best in any role.

“It's important to have everyone's trust, this allows you to perform at your best. Everyone has the right desire and the right determination. We are happy, the group is one of our secrets."

Inter sit 11 points above second in Serie A and Darmian was asked if he feels the Scudetto is theirs.

“Winning these matches, suffering, helps a lot," he said. “We have an important advantage, but the Scudetto is not yet in our pockets and we have to win it mathematically.

“We will continue to enter the pitch to win as many games as possible, we cannot celebrate until it's ours."
