'We needed this' - Matchwinner Brozovic revels in late Inter victory over Torino

·1-min read

Marcelo Brozovic hailed Inter's resolve after he snatched a 89th minute winner in their 1-0 victory over Torino.

The Serie A heavyweights moved back into the top four thanks to some late heroics at San Siro, after a particularly toothless performance from Simone Inzaghi's men.

On the back of a derby defeat to Milan a week prior, followed by a lacklustre loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League, the Nerazzurri had been hunting a crucial three-point haul this weekend.

Speaking afterwards, Brozovic did not understate the crucial nature of coming away on the winning side, and hopes the side can use it as a springboard to a stronger run.

"This is a really important victory, because it is a tough match," he told DAZN. "Torino are one-on-one all over the field. It was difficult.

"We needed this. In some games, we [have been] unable to do what we wanted. Now, we need to keep going and win. It is a victory for all of us and we hope for more."

Inzaghi doubled down on the importance of the result, and praised his team for their willingness to take a blow along the way.

"We knew that we'd have to suffer today," he added. "Our fans were with us to the end. I liked the fighting spirit. Games like this are very, very important to win.

"I wanted this, for us to get back to winning ways. We know the pressure is always on. Seeing the team work together in difficult circumstances, that is the most pleasing for a coach."
