Lautaro Martinez says ‘I wish to win my first Inter trophy’, as he looking forward to the Europa League Final facing ‘difficult opponent’ – Sevilla.
“I’m very happy because we are very close to achieving one of our goals – to lift a trophy,” he told UEFA.com after bagging a brace in the 5-0 semi-final win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
“Let’s hope that our last match [of the season] will be a great day, and we’ll bring the trophy back to Italy.”
“I think the team’s personality and day-to-day work ethic have shown that Inter is growing and building to achieve great things. And, on a personal note, [I want] to try to win my first title with Inter, which would be very special. It’s the first final [for me]; it could mean the first trophy of my career.”
“Sevilla is a tough opponent, one that presses, gets around the pitch, and plays great football. That’s why they’ve reached the final. We have to study, train and prepare ourselves like we’ve done in every game so that we’re able to stop the things they do well and counter them to benefit from that.”
“Sevilla reached many finals and that’s for a reason. It means they’re a serious team, a team that plays well. So we’ll watch out for what they can do.”
“But we’re mainly focused on ourselves. We’re focused on our job, we’re focused on Inter, on what it means to have reached a final after such a long time, and on what it can mean to lift a trophy at the moment. Right now, we’re very close to it. We have the chance, and we’ll play like we have to.”
