Conte is happy with the way Lukaku is working with Lautaro Martinez.

He said, "I had studied Lautaro a little before coming here. He is a centre-forward, but at the same time also a second striker, so he's atypical.

Lukaku is an unusual striker too, because he has this physicality of a centre-forward, but if you give him space to run into, he is devastatingly fast.

I above all am happy with the work they are doing off the ball. Behind them, we have Sebastiano Esposito, who might just be 17 years old, but trust me, if he continues with this humility then he can have a great future."

This was a very important penalty, as we simply had to win today," Lukaku told Sky Sport Italia after the 2-1 victory.

Bologna played with a lot of intensity and impressed me today, but we had a good team mentality and I'm happy.

I'm pleased to have had such a good start, but I am 26 years old and I need to grow every day, along with the whole team."

Sabatini accused Martinez of diving to win the penalty for Inter's 2-1 victory.

Unfortunately, Bologna lost a game that we did not deserve to lose and we couldn't lose," Sabatini told Sky Sport Italia.

We were not given a free kick for a foul on Rodrigo Palacio right on the edge of the box. We'd have seen out the game from that. Moments later, Inter got their penalty, which was risible. You can't give a penalty for that.

Lautaro Martinez is an excellent striker, but I see he is learning the old tricks of the trade already. He seeks the contact, Orsolini barely grazes him and he goes down. If we want to use non-technical language, it was divish."

A brace from Romelu Lukaku, including a stoppage-time penalty, turned around the Roberto Soriano opener.

Conte said, There was a great response from the team. The way we conceded the goal, with basically an own goal deflected off De Vrij, could've killed us. It could've killed us.

Instead, the lads showed great inner strength to fight back and turn it around. It's an excellent sign, because it can be too easy to judge when things are going well. A team that reacts to difficulties and turns them into a victory is a great sign.

We need to focus on ourselves and not think about what anyone else is doing. We must work on improving ourselves and sending these signs to above all our fans.

In the press conference, I said our objective was to become credible, to emerge with a shirt soaked through with sweat. We are achieving that.

Now we go back to Milan, get some sleep and tomorrow morning start preparing for Borussia Dortmund. We hope to leave there with no regrets."

The Swede will be out of contract in December when his deal with MLS club LA Galaxy expires.

Ibrahimovic wants to join us because of his rapport with Sinisa," Sabatini told TuttoMercatoWeb in the mixed zone after a 2-1 defeat to Inter.

It's not impossible. It can be done, but if it is, it'll be because of the affection that bonds them together. Ibra would like to help Mihajlovic and I can say we'll do everything to make this madness happen."

His deal in LA expires in December, with established Serie A sides such as Napoli and former club Inter Milan touted as possible destinations.

But Corriere dello Sport says Bologna are interested in making a surprise move for the superstar striker on a six-month contract.

If Ibrahimovic was to make the move to Bologna, he would reunite with old friend and Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic.

"Mihajlovic is a friend, so if I were to choose Bologna, it'd be just for him. We have spoken recently. He told me: 'Zlatan, here the others would run for you. All you need to do is stay up there and put the ball in the net'.

"I thank him, but it's probably unlikely to happen. If I change my mind, then I'll call him straight away, especially because I could still get 20 goals in Serie A."

Cristiano Ronaldo and Miralem Pjanic grabbed Juve's goals around a Danilo temporary equaliser, but there was a late scare when Federico Santander hit the bar, then forced a Gigi Buffon fingertip save.

We watched it again afterwards and Bologna players were offside, so it wouldn't have counted anyway," Sarri told DAZN.

I told the lads we mustn't try to control a game, sit on a lead or be comfortable, because otherwise we leave ourselves in these risky situations to the very end.

The sensation is that we moved the ball quicker after the break and Bologna were getting there a fraction of a second later. I don't know if that's because we did better or they were tired, having worked so hard in the first half to contain us.

There's a fine line between passing the ball effectively and just keeping ephemeral possession. In the last five minutes, we did it badly, as we lost the ball in banal fashion in our final third. We need to work on the details.

It was a good game, but blighted by three or four horrible errors that we have to work on. I need to ensure the players realise we keep the ball for a reason, so possession is never kept just for the sake of it. We go into maintenance mode and that is never good."

Mihajlovic was diagnosed with leukaemia in July, so spent all of pre-season and most of the campaign so far in hospital undergoing two courses of chemotherapy.

Don't worry, the boss can make himself heard even when he's not physically present," winger Orsolini told DAZN.

He gave us a good telling off even on Skype! We had some cameras installed at the training ground that allow him to watch our sessions live and give us corrections in real time.

He might not be physically with us, but he never leaves our side nonetheless."

Corriere dello Sport says Winterling has snubbed the opportunity to take up a similar role at Liverpool.

The German was offered a '200m budget' if he moved to Anfield.

However, Winterling snubbed the approach.

The reason being because of Bologna, because of the club's owner Joey Saputo, because of the city, where he feels that, with time, the club can have a 'bright future'."

Edin Dzeko headed a winner in the final seconds - after Gianluca Mancini received a second yellow card for a raised elbow on Federico Santander.

"We played well and I thought dominated throughout the match," Fonseca told Sky Sport Italia.

It's true that in the second half Bologna pushed on the counter-attack and created scoring opportunities, but we deserved the victory for our character, unity and courage."

He added: We know that our playing style involves running some risks, but that is what we have decided, that is our approach and we're not going to change it.

I have adapted slightly and I think this version is more realistic in Serie A, but we always want to go for the win. I think everyone in the side is happy with the way we are playing, so they are enthusiastic and motivated."
