Argentina international Lautaro Martinez scored the winning goal for Inter Milan as they beat rivals Napoli on Sunday in Serie A.

Lautaro Martinez explained the reason behind his apology celebration for Inter Milan fans during their 3-2 win against Napoli on Sunday.

The Argentine bagged the decisive goal of the night as Nerrazurri beat their Scudetto rivals at San Siro.

As a matter of fact, it was the first goal for the striker after October 2 which he rejoiced by placing his hand on his heart and waving to the crowd.

When asked about his after goal celebration, Lautaro had a humble explanation for his reaction.

The 24-year-old told the reporters: “I apologised because I did something wrong, I hadn’t scored for a month.”

“But my head is at Inter, I work for Inter, my priority is always Inter. Yes, I’m happy, even for my family.”

Regardless of Lautaro’s goal drought this new season, Inter coach Simone Inzaghi backed the recovering Argentina international.

He said: “The forwards go through these moments, there have been for me, for my brother [Filippo], for [Ciro] Immobile at Lazio which fortunately had very few.”

“Lautaro is working very well. Chances happen. He also had them in the derby against AC Milan. He must continue to believe in his potential and he will return to scoring as he always has.”
