UDINE – Keep on running because "until the referee blows the final whistle, we need to be careful and follow the coach’s instructions. Today we picked up important points." Maicon never stopped running against Udinese and the Nerazzurri’s important win was also in a large part down to him.
"The team reacted well," said the Brazilian defender as he spoke to Inter Channel. "Even when we fell behind we stayed compact, we did what Stramaccioni told us to, and we won. Hats off to him."
On the subject of Stramaccioni, Maicon explained, "You can already see that he’s got ideas and, as you can see on the pitch, the team’s playing well. Of course he’s young and he knows that, he still has a great deal to learn. But he’s humble, he listens, watches, studies the game and he doesn’t make big statements to the press."
