Sulley Muntari: Inter Are Almost There

Sulley MuntariSulley Muntari scored his third goal of the season last night, as Inter dispatched Coppa Italia finalists Lazio 2-0 at the San Siro to move ten points clear at the top of the Serie A table.

But there was controversy too, as the crowd jeered the players, most notably striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, after a poor first half display.

“The fans are fundamental and we would like to have their support at all times, not only when we play well and win, but also when we are struggling,” Muntari told the Inter Channel.

The result ended Inter’s three-game winless streak and virtually crushed any hopes of a comeback from second-placed local rivals Milan, who play away at Catania this afternoon.

“We want to reach our objective as soon as possible,” noted the ex-Portsmouth player.

“We wanted these three points to relax a little and I now hope the fans will do too.”

Inter’s next meeting will be a trip to relegation-haunted Chievo Verona next Sunday.
