Antonio Conte, technician of the Inter de Milan, he assured this Wednesday, on the eve of the league match against him Parma, which begins “to see the plays of the best” Chilean Alexis Sanchez and that the forward has finally reached his “best psychophysical condition”.
“He is a player who reached his best psychophysical condition since he reached the Inter. It took patience on both sides, but now he’s in his prime. I begin to see the plays of old Alexis and the credit is his, “said Conte at the press conference prior to the visit to Parma of the leader Inter.
“He knows that he has two players in front of him who are doing well like (the Belgian, Romelu) Lukaku and (the Argentine) Lautaro (Martínez), but they also know that they have a player behind them who squeezes and who can give a important contribution until the end of the championship, “he added.
Alexis, who is living his second season in Milan with Inter, scored his third goal against Genoa in the current Serie A last Sunday and is offering Conte an important offensive alternative to the Lukaku-Lautaro duo.
The Italian coach gave him praise on Wednesday after he had publicly demanded more of him a few weeks ago.
“I don’t know if Sánchez was tired. He tried to do his best, but he must also have more punch at the time of shooting, because the numbers have no mercy. For the forwards, the numbers speak, and the numbers must be more important for Sánchez. “he said at the beginning of February, annoyed by the elimination of the Italian Cup against Juventus.
At the press conference on Wednesday, Conte also referred to the Chilean Arturo Vidal and highlighted his generosity despite having a series of small physical problems in this campaign.
“Arturo is trying to give continuity to his training sessions, he has had some problems since his arrival. He is a generous boy, who has never wanted to stop and has always been available to contribute his experience. We appreciate it, but now it is correct that he can achieve his best physical condition, “he said.
