Lautaro Martinez clarifies that Inter is focusing on becoming more ‘aggressive’ following a 4-0 victory over Fiorentina, anticipates the upcoming clash against Milan, and acknowledges that he ceased following Romelu Lukaku on Instagram.
The Argentina international notched another two goals in tonight’s win at San Siro, bringing his total for the season to five goals.
“I am in good shape. I am happy. And my family is content,” the World Cup winner told DAZN.
“I always try to give my best. Sometimes I score, sometimes I don’t, but I try to help the team regardless. I work every day to get better and do even more.”
Simone Inzaghi has made slight adjustments to his tactics this season, with the aim of having his players engage more aggressively in the high press to regain possession as swiftly as they can.
“That is the main thing we are working on, to be really aggressive, because we have the players to make it work. Recovering the ball near the opposition goal is important, because it gives you an opportunity to create chances. That’s how the first goal came about today.”
Inter and Milan are the only teams with a flawless record after just three Serie A rounds, setting the stage for a thrilling Derby della Madonnina after the international break.
Additionally, it appears to be a contest for the Capocannoniere title, with Lautaro Martinez scoring five goals and Olivier Giroud netting four.
“I try to help my teammates and make sure Inter win, but if I score a goal too, then even better. The important thing is that Inter win. Milan have strengthened a great deal this summer, they have quality players and we know what they are capable of.”
