Inter Captain Mauro Icardi wants to “keep going” after scoring his 100th goal for the Nerazzurri.
Icardi scored four goals today as his Inter side destroyed Sampdoria 5-0 at the Marassi and the Argentinian International now has 103 Serie A goals in the blue and black colours of Inter.
Speaking after the game with Sky Sport Italia, Icardi was very happy with his performance but also heaped praise for his teammates.
“I really wanted to reach 100 goals and then I just kept going. It was a fine performance from the whole team and we got three very important points, which are more important than the goals.
“It was very important to get points. We showed a lot of sacrifice and team spirit to get a draw against Napoli, but with this win we can rest over the break and prepare to begin again with the right attitude.
“In football sometimes you can’t explain things. There was a period where we all should’ve done better and damaged ourselves, frittering away what we had built at the start of the season.
“We set an objective this term and we have to achieve it”.
Despite scoring 22 Serie A goals in 24 games this season, Icardi was not included into Argentina’s squad for the upcoming friendlies this month against Italy and Spain.
“I spoke to the Coach, I knew already that I was out. I was injured for four games and it was only right that others were chosen”.
