Inter Milan president Steven Zhang believes the team can compete at the top again after they made it to the Champions League final.

The President of Nerazzurri Steven Zhang acknowledged the Inter Milan team after they progressed to the Champions League final.

Inter Milan defeated AC Milan in the second leg as the team looks to face between Real Madrid and Manchester City in the final.

For the sixth time in their history Inter reaches the final of the European Cup/Champions League. An extraordinary achievement, which comes 13 years since the last time (the victory in the final in Madrid against Bayern Munich).

Speaking after the game Zhang said: “It is definitely the greatest feeling after the Scudetto. It is a great pleasure and reward for our work, we have built a team capable of returning to the top in Europe. It doesn’t happen every year to have a campaign like this in the Champions League. Credit to the coach, the whole staff and the players, who are giving everything for the club.
“Every season is special and has its own history, but honestly it was difficult to imagine at the beginning of the year that we could reach the Champions League final. I have to admit, though, that Lukaku told me we could go all the way and he was right.”

Zhang further stated that both potential final opponents are very strong but insists anything can happen in 90 minutes of the game.

“Manchester City or Real Madrid? They are both very strong teams, but we came through a group with great opponents, so it will definitely be a spectacular final. Anything can happen over 90 minutes and we will try to play it to the maximum.

“This is the seventh year I’ve been here, when we arrived there were players who had never played in the Champions League, now we are in the final and we have managed to bring Inter back to the top. That was our goal and as long as we are here we will do everything to keep the club at this level of competitiveness.”
