Vucinic wary of Inter threat

Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic believes that Inter will pose a tough proposition when the two teams meet on Saturday.

The Bianconeri travel to San Siro this weekend looking to extend their lead at the top of the table to 12 points.

But the Montenegrin striker has claimed that the Derby d'Italia is always a tricky match.

“We play against Inter, and the name says it all,” he told Sport Mediaset. “They are a strong team and I do not believe anyone who says they are in trouble.

“I watched their [Europa league second-leg] win against Tottenham and they threatened a lot.

“We need to focus – approaching the game as if it were the game of our lives.”

The 29-year-old then commented on Coach Antonio Conte and potential arrivals over the summer.

“Conte? The results speak for themselves. He came to Juve and won the League in his first year.

“We can only hope that that continues.

“If a top player arrived here I would be quite happy,” Vucinic added. “That would give us a big hand.

“But let's not forget – everyone at Juventus is a top player.”
