"This win means a lot during this emergency period that we're in," he told Inter's official website.
"It's something the lads showed to everyone and to our president (Massimo Moratti), who always gives us a boost. It was also for the fans, who are always there for us.
"I think Inter played a strong first half. We knew we would pay for it a bit after half time, while Parma were able to send on fresh legs. But we managed to get the result."
Inter are now fifth in Serie A with 53 points from 33 matches.
