The victory consolidates Inter's third place on the table.
“Everyone behind us had won, so that puts some pressure on. Even when relegated, Chievo wanted to prove something against Inter and that's normal," the midfielder told Sky Sport Italia.
“They caused us problems, we had to win and it didn't matter if it was beautiful or ugly, just as long as we got the three points.
“Nobody can say they are sure until it is mathematically guaranteed. It's going to be tough, as we have Napoli next week and in the end Empoli are fighting it out to avoid relegation, so everyone is highly-motivated.
“I am happy to be playing consistently now and to be free of injuries. I hope that continues going into next season."
