Lautaro Martinez: Inter has to raise the bar

Lautaro Martinez, aiming for the Serie A goals record, urges Inter to continue pushing themselves after a 4-0 triumph over Lecce.

Simone Inzaghi’s squad maintains a consistent identity, regardless of how much rotation occurs. This was evident in their rainy 4-0 win at the Stadio Via del Mare against Lecce.

Lautaro Martinez scored twice for Inter, bringing his Serie A career goal count to 101, while Davide Frattesi and Stefan de Vrij also contributed to the scoreline.

“This win means a lot to us. We are showing real consistency and playing great football against everyone,” Lautaro Martinez told DAZN.

They have won all 10 competitive matches in 2024, in Serie A, the Supercoppa Italiana and Champions League.

“We are working really well together, I am happy, but we must continue like this because it is not over.”

Lautaro Martinez becomes only the third foreign player to score 100 goals for Inter after Istvan Nyers and Mauro Icardi. Which of his goals was his favorite, though?

“It is difficult to choose, but I’ll say the 100th. When I left home at the age of 15, I didn’t think all this could happen. I owe it all to my family.”

Lautaro has now scored at least 20 goals in three consecutive Serie A campaigns and is on track to potentially match the all-time record of 36 in a single season, set by Ciro Immobile and Gonzalo Higuain.

“I know that I have to mature and have real margin for improvement. I am also glad at our results this season, but we’ve got nothing firmly in our grasp yet. I will go for the record, but the important thing is that Inter must win. I am happy because these goals help Inter to bring points home.”
