Dejan Stankovic insists Inter “are going to Turin in order to win” against Juventus in tonight’s Derby d’Italia.
The Nerazzurri go into the Juventus Stadium this evening and are certainly not the favourites.
“Juventus will certainly have more pressure on them compared to us, because they are challenging for the title.
“They are in good shape both physically and psychologically, but the Derby d’Italia is something special that stands apart from the rest of the season.
“Clearly we are going to Turin in order to win. I always thought that in big games the big players emerge, so we hope to prove that we fit the bill. I’d also like to score, as I’ve never gone an entire season without finding the net.
“When things don’t go well, there is never just one reason behind it. It can be the mind, the legs or whatever else,” said the Serb.
“There have been many games in which we failed to express ourselves to our full potential, others in which we were just unlucky.
“I am certain all of us are seeking the solution within ourselves, but this is the situation we are in and it’s something I personally have never experienced before.
“It is beyond doubt that we started the season to fight for big objectives and instead find ourselves in this situation. I still hear talk about the Treble today, though nobody can repeat what we did. Some try to imitate us, but nobody has managed it yet.”
