Stankovic still proud of Inter

Dejan Stankovic is still proud of Inter even though their campaign has been somewhat disappointing after last year's historic treble.

The Nerazzurri are out of the title race and were eliminated from the Champions League by German side Schalke earlier this month.

Tonight's Coppa Italia semi-final against Roma appears to be Inter's last credible shot of adding to the Italian Super Cup and the Club World Cup.

Saturday's 2-0 defeat to relegation threatened Parma, however, means Leonardo's side go into the match under scrutiny.

Interviewed by the Inter Channel, Stankovic said: "Inter are a team who for five years have won everything that they could win, so it's normal that they now attack us.

"Right now we have to not let it get to us, keep our mouths shut and pedal on regardless.

"I have to admit it. I am very proud. Even in the difficult moments I have always said that I am proud to have worn this shirt and to be supported by these fans because what they are doing is extraordinary.

"I am really proud to be supported by a group of this nature."
