Milan [Italy], Aug 17 (ANI): Inter Milan's manager Antonio Conte has said that the side does not think of themselves as saviours of Italy heading into the semi-final clash against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League.
The attention has turned to Inter as Italian sides Juventus, Napoli, Atalanta have bowed out of the Champions League.
Juventus lost to Lyon, Napoli lost to Barcelona while Atalanta bowed out to Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
"We don't consider ourselves the saviours of the country, we've made our journey without looking at the others," Goal.com quoted Conte as saying.
"Our goal is to improve ourselves. Personally, if we achieved European success I would be happy for the club, not for myself. I'm not thinking about my personal record but about the club that decided to hire me," he added.
Inter Milan will most likely be without the services of Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean battling to recover from a hamstring injury.
"Sanchez has been out for three-quarters of the season. Now we realise what kind of weapon we are missing. It is normal that not having him available is disappointing for me and denies me a fundamental element," Conte said.
Inter Milan will take on Shakhtar Donetsk in the semi-finals of the Europa League later today. (ANI)
