Inter Milan succeeded in triumphing in their derby match against local rivals AC Milan, but Antonio Conte still wants more from his boys.

Antonio Conte wants more than a normal winning team and believes his new signing Lukaku can do more than he’s doing at the moment.

Lukaku got on the scoresheet against AC Milan at the 78th minute when Nicolo Barella provided him the assist.

Speaking to DAZN, Conte disclosed that he’s also glad that his boys quickly got over their poor UEFA Champions League performance and gave the derby match all they could, despite being a bit tired from their UEFA clash.

“It was a special game, it’s not easy to predict a game like this. We played in the UCL not long ago so we were a little tired but my players really gave it their all,” Conte said.

“We wanted to put the Slavia game behind us and that’s exactly what we did. Lukaku? He can give more, that’s for sure. He has to keep on working hard as he still has a lot of potential. Lautaro?

“He is only 22, he also has to improve and develop. Serie A vs UCL? We are doing great in the Serie A, a little less in the UCL. I was upset since we missed a lot of key chances, we have to be more clinical going forward.
