Rafael Benitez, FC Internazionale Milano coach:
It was not easy to start as well as we did as we lost [Wesley] Sneijder so quickly. The second goal made the difference for us and then towards the end we controlled the game. It was a very hard win and it was difficult to control the game as Seongnam players were running a lot and they knew exactly what to do. I'm happy with my players as they did what we wanted of them. Seongnam are well organised and they have a lot of qualities but they had some difficulties tonight and I would like to congratulate their coach for the job that he has done with them.
Shin Tae Yong, Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma coach
I would like to congratulate Inter as they played really well today. The score might be 3-0 but our players gave their best until the end of the game. Our team did a lot of effective work but in the first half we conceded two goals and they had a slight advantage. If we compare the two teams, Inter's players were physically stronger. Also, their individual skills were better than us and that was one of the reasons why we lost tonight. Inter were good and they scored three goals but we were not bad ourselves and gave a good performance tonight.
