Inter Milan coach Simone Inzaghi expressed his elation and admiration for his team's remarkable journey to the Champions League final after securing a resounding 3-0 aggregate victory over their arch-rivals, AC Milan, in a post-match conference on Tuesday.
Reflecting on the momentous achievement, Inzaghi shared his excitement, stating, "It's a dream come true.
"We always believed we could do it, and we have had an extraordinary journey to the final."
The Inter Milan manager was thoroughly impressed by every aspect of his team's performance, emphasizing the players' exceptional running, determination, and concentration throughout the match. Inzaghi lauded his squad, declaring, "What pleased me? Everything. They were very good."
With their place secured in the Champions League final, which will take place in Istanbul on June 10, Inzaghi acknowledged that the full magnitude of their accomplishment would sink in over the following days.
He expressed his eagerness to embrace the experience, saying, "We will only fully realize what we have done in the days to come."
Looking ahead to the other semifinal clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid, Inzaghi revealed his excitement as a spectator.
He described both teams as being among the best in Europe and expressed his anticipation for the decisive second leg, which was finely balanced at 1-1 after the first leg.
