“People know we have to play Inter (play and win) tomorrow. If we go there to try to do something different, we will receive an unpleasant surprise,” said Conte at a press conference session, as quoted by Football-Italy.

“We respect Crotone and what they do, they will be motivated and want to prove they deserve to stay in Serie A.”

Inter’s duel against Crotone is like earth and sky. Inter are firmly at the top of the standings while Crotone is at the bottom of the standings with 18 points from 33 matches.

“The meeting will be simple because we haven’t seen each other for some time a long time. He greeteds the players and wisheds us luck. He knows very well that we haven’t defeated beaten anything,” added Conte.

“Our opponent and we can feel tired, but we will achieve something historic, I don’t think we should be tired. If anything, he better tell me and go to the bench.”
