Antonio Conte praised the Inter team for recruiting Alexis Sanchez.
“I think the move of Alexis Sanchez is a fantastic one that the club has made. That was a very nice move given the conditions that we managed to bring Alexis,” the coach told.
Alexis Sanchez has entered into a three-year contract with Inter, early terminating his Manchester United deal.
Conte said: “When he was still struggling at Manchester United, he had gone off for two years, so he had this injury with us and we took the time to bring him back on track, and it’s only fair that we will now enjoy the benefits of that work.”
He is also pleased that Inter ‘was not scared to stuck in and fight for every ball’ against Getafe:
“We were well conscious of the difficulties this game might bring.
“Getafe started out fast and with Stefan de Vrij we quickly had a wrong run forwards. They were moving and making it active for the second hit. In the beginning they were better but we had the game in hand and began passing the ball around.
“We knew it will be a ‘dirty’ game so we didn’t fear being dirty with them. That’s a positive sign, as it’s the determination to get stuck in and fight for every ball, which we have lost this season at times.”
