Jovetic: ‘Napoli not decisive’

Inter forward Stevan Jovetic doesn’t believe Monday’s Napoli game will be decisive - “we’ve only had a third of the campaign”.

The Nerazzurri travel to Naples in what is being billed as an early Scudetto showdown, but the Montenegrin international plays down the importance of the match.

“A Scudetto play-off?” Jovetic considered, speaking to Corriere dello Sport.

“It would be if we were two games from the end, but instead we’ve only had a third of the campaign.

“Let’s say it will be important for one of the top-three places.

“Gonzalo Higuain? Higuain is a great striker, a top player, who has unsurprisingly also played for Real Madrid. We’ll try to stop him.”

Jovetic also discussed Inter’s potential Scudetto rivals, and isn’t ruling out Roma despite their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of Barcelona.

“It’s hard for everyone against Barcelona. I’ve only faced them once, because the other two times with Manchester City I was on the bench.

“[Lionel] Messi and co are phenomena, and losing badly against them can happen. Roma are a strong team though, and if they win their last group game they’ll qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

“Did I watch Juventus-Man City? Of course. I sat in front of my TV and cheered for my former teammates. I had two wonderful years in Manchester, though last year what happened, happened.

“I still speak with [Aleksandar] Kolarov, [Vincent] Company and [David] Silva.

“As for Juventus, the Bianconeri are strong, and with 25 games to play anything can happen. Like I said before, they can fight for the Scudetto.”
