Inter is the only representative of his country in a continental definition, facing the semi-finals of the Europa League against Shakhtar Donetsk.
Antonio Conte insisted that Inter should not be portrayed as the “saviors” of soccer from Italy, as they fight for the glory of the Europa League.
Attention in his country has turned to Neroazzurri after Juventus lost to Lyon and Napoli lost to Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16, while Atalanta said goodbye to Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the same competition.
“We do not consider ourselves the saviors of the country, we have made our journey without looking at others. Our aim is to improve ourselves. Personally, if we achieve a European success, I would be happy for the club, not for me. I am not thinking about my personal record but at the club that decided to hire me, “Conte told the media.
In addition, the coach spoke about the situation of Chilean Alexis Sánchez, who is struggling to recover from a hamstring injury. “He was out for three-quarters of the season. Now we realize what kind of weapon we are missing. It is normal that not having it available disappoints me,” he said.
