Stankovic never tires of winning

Inter midfielder Dejan Stankovic has warned Milan ahead of Saturday's Derby della Madonnina that his side never tires of winning.

The Nerazzurri are just two points behind the League leaders and have a golden opportunity to perform an overtaking maneuver late in the season.

Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, Stankovic said: "Perhaps they see us as favourites because of our recent results. We have launched a historic comeback and certainly don't want to stop.

"We won't relax of course. At most I am slightly worried by their anger [at losing to Palermo], the desire to show that they are not top of the table after 20 games by chance, to show that they have quality. I have never doubted this."

Asked about Zlatan Ibrahimovic's comments that if Milan lose the Scudetto it will be their fault, Stankovic replied: "If they lose it, there will also be a lot of merit on Inter's part. We have believed in the Scudetto deeply, even when we were 13 points back.

"I have never thought about playing for Milan, but of course leaving one side for another to become a Coach is very different."
