He did indeed excell against poorer opposition. Let`s see him against bigger teams.Very classy today, excellent job, MOTM really.
The victory means Inter leapfrog Sheriff into second place in the Champions League group on seven points, with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid leading on nine. They also have a superior head-to-head record with Sheriff, who have six points.
“Now we control our own destiny. The only thing that mattered today was winning, we played really well, attacked and did not allow any counter-attacks,” Brozovic told Sky Sport Italia.
It was still goalless at the break, despite numerous chances and Lautaro Martinez rattling the woodwork.
“The coach said a few things, we needed to move the ball quicker and then we’d 100 per cent score a goal.”
Brozovic was named UEFA Man of the Match after his first ever Champions League goal at the 27th appearance.
Inter now prepare for Sunday’s Serie A clash with rivals Milan in the Derby della Madonnina.
“The only thing that matters is winning. We want to all give 100 per cent for the victory.”
Yeah. Correct me if i am wrong but i never remember him expressing the desire to stay at Inter. Whenever he's asked about it he always responds "we'll see". Of course it could simply be a matter of money or perhaps he wants a change of scenery. Time will tell. In any case, losing Brozovic on a free would be the first big failure of Marotta.Wrote in mercato thread this too, I've started to thing if it's just Brozo wanting to change the scenery.
If that's the case, can't really blame him, he's been at Inter for over 6 years, he's been here since 2015.

The problem is we left the extension for the last possible moment. In part due to our financial situation but also due to Conte having doubts about him. Till last summer we didn't even know if we wanted to extend his contract. This should have been resolved last summer even before selling Hakimi. Either you sign an extension or you're put on the market. Instead we did nothing hoping Brozovic will sign an extension. This thing can't be repeated in the future. We can't afford losing our best players on a free ala Milan.Not necessary a failure.
If Brozovic has decided to leave and he won't renew and it's the summer of 2021. What should Marotta do? Try to sell him and desperately trying to buy a replacement midfielder while he had lost Conte, Lukaku and Hakimi already. IMO that would risk the top4 qualification, really.
If they took the chance the extension or no extension, Brozo plays this one season for Inter and guarantees the top4 spot, CL knockouts etc. Then walks away for free. That might have been a decision and I can't really blame making such decision. Top4 is more important than the sale money from Brozo which would have gone to the replacement (at least most) which wouldn't have been as good as him, at least not out of the gate. We needed some stability as the summer was quite crazy and keeping Brozo was the correct thing to do here in my books.
If it's only about the money, I think we just need to pay. But I just can't believe it would be only about the money.
