"The told me he was weaker on that side": He beat Ter Stegen and this is how
The weakneses and strenghts of the Barcelona goalkeeper are well know by his rivals and this is how they scored on him
Hakan Calhanoglu is enjoying life at Inter Milan. The Turkish midfielder was criticized for leaving AC Milan last season for the Nerazzurri on the season then the Rossoneri won the Serie A, but he's flying high with his current team. His goal at the Giuseppe Meazza secured three key points for Inter, but he had help with his effort against Ter Stegen.
"Before the game Romelu came and told me that when I shot on goal I should try to do it on the right, where Ter Stegen is a little weaker. André also told me, who knows him better than me. Before the shot, I immediately thought of those words that they told me and I was quick, because there was no time to think too much and I shot very well", explained the Inter midfielder in an interview on streaming service Amazon Prime.
One of the contributing factors to the outcome, according to Calhanoglu, was the mindset they had when facing Barça. "Before the match against Barcelona we were already mentally prepared, because we knew they are strong, they have important players. They are very strong with the ball, but if you are mentally prepared, you leave the field, you know you have to give everything. We ran more, with desire, with courage, with heart, which in my opinion had been lacking in the last few games. Now we just want to pedal, pedal and work", explained the former Bayer Leverkusen player.
However, Hakan Calhanoglu knows that Barcelona will be looking for revenge in their upcoming clash: "They will be angry. They will have fire inside and we know it will be tough, but we will give it our all. If we work like this on the pitch for 90 minutes, I don't think many teams will have a chance to win against us"
