Antonio Conte believes Inter Milan need to be more clinical

Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte believes his side needs to be more clinical in the remaining games of the Serie A.

Inter Milan defeated Sampdoria 2-1 on Sunday, courtesy Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez goals. The Nerazzurri, who picked up all three points, are currently third in the table, six points behind leaders Juventus.

"We should have finished the game off sooner," the coach was quoted as saying in the post-match analysis as per the club's official website.

"We also created a lot against Napoli but it then finished 1-1 because of a mistake. Today, we had plenty of chances but didn't really wrap up the win. We have to be more clinical.

"We have twelve games left and we won't have any room to slip up because we're chasing," he added.

He said if the team wants to lift trophies, they need to be more ruthless in their approach.

"We've worked so hard, both tactically and physically, and we want to take our chances. I hope that games like tonight's, as well as the semifinal against Napoli, allow us to understand where we went wrong and help us to grow. If we want to lift trophies, we need to be more ruthless in a sporting sense," he said.

"I'm still satisfied with the guys because they did well, but if we want to achieve something special then we need even more determination, both in possession and when our opponents have the ball."

Inter will next take on Sassuolo on Wednesday.
