Inter captain Lautaro Martinez updated on the talks regarding his extension. His agent threw cold water on them, suggesting there was a gap between the offer and the request, while Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta has routinely voiced his optimism. He spoke to DAZN after the successful Derby D’Italia (via OneFootball).
“There are no news. We’re in touch with the management. I can confirm that we’re discussing it. Surely, it’s not easy, but we’ll try to reach an agreement because we’re on the right path. Moreover, with all these matches with short turnarounds, I focus on the pitch. I still have two years on my contract. I’m fine here with my family. There’s nothing to worry about.”
Lautaro Martinez addressed the massive win over their rivals.
“It was surely a great opportunity for us and our journey. We had an excellent game for how we played and the personality we showed. We were aggressive any time we turned the ball over. They were sitting back to counter, but we took it to them. We’re very happy.”
Finally, Lautaro Martinez dished on his role inside the team.
“Wearing the captain’s armband is one extra reason for me to take responsibility, but I think I’ve always given my best for Inter and conveyed certain values to my teammates, those taught to me by my father when I was a kid. The group is the most important thing. Ours has been excellent since last year. I’m happy to grow with them and pursue our objectives.”
