Lautaro Martinez seems to be enjoying his time under the new manager, Antonio Conte. The Argentinian scored two goals in the Serie A.

Inter started the season on fire. Collecting six wins in seven matches, they only lost to the holding champions, Juventus.

Lautaro Martinez is a big part of the initial success. He’s used as a primary option in a two-striker system.

Unlike last season where Spalletti used only one striker, Lautaro sees much more playing time at the start of 2019/20.

Just as expected, the Argentinian is thrilled with his new manager. In an interview with ESPN, Lautaro praised Conte, saying:

“​Conte does a complete job, he takes care of every detail, from physical appearance to food.

“He asks us a lot, but so he raises our level, his demands are very clear. We are growing and improving.

“I am learning Italian, I speak it with my classmates but I am a little ashamed. I am adapting, I am getting to know it more and more, but it is difficult.”

Lautaro also played a full match against Germany, where his Argentina got a 2-2 draw with the former World Cup Champions winners.

As for Serie A, Inter is now two points behind Juve, as the Nerazzurri look forward to competing for the title until the very end.
