Liverpool midfielder Thiago: We controlled Inter Milan

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara was delighted with the way they fought to win at Inter Milan.

The Reds won the first-leg of last night's Champions League round 16 tie 2-0.

Thiago said, "We are talking about the biggest stage in the Champions League against an historically great team like Inter, playing here, trying to win the game. I think in the first half we created a lot of chances, then in the second they started to dominate the game and then fortunately we had this fabulous header from Bobby (Firmino) and after that we really controlled the game and we won it more, got the second one. We are really happy with the result."

Thiago also paid tribute to the coaching staff.

W"e always say that we have a great staff who prepare us for these type of actions and also we are really aware in training. In the end, in the Champions League the small details are the difference and we got [them] tonight."
