Joao Mario, scorer of Inter’s only goal in their 1-0 win over Palermo Sunday afternoon, spoke to Premium Sport after the final whistle.
“It was a very important match for us. We worked hard during the week after playing 120 minutes against Bologna and now we’re happy. This team has a lot of quality and we must be ready when the coach calls on us to help. Icardi can’t score alone, we all have to help,” Mario said.
“Pioli knows Serie A. He’s helped us, especially tactically, to prepare for every match. Now we’re winning and we have to continue this way. For me, it’s more important that you run smart and run well instead of running a lot and we’re doing just that. We believe in the Champions League spot but we must only think about Pescara. It’s a huge match for us,” concluded the Portuguese midfielder.
Inter face Pescara in six days’ time on Saturday, January 28th at 2:45 PM EST.
