Cristian Chivu insists “Inter are even more motivated than Palermo” for tonight's Coppa Italia Final.
“There are no favourites in a one-off match,” the defender told Inter Channel.
“It will be a difficult encounter, because Palermo have lofty ambitions and this represents an historic Final for them.
“They are fired up, but Inter are even more motivated than Palermo. It's never easy to face the Sicilians, a very organised side with experienced players who will be ready to do battle.
“As I said, we too are prepared to fight for the Coppa Italia. We want to lift our third trophy of the season.”
The Nerazzurri have already won the Italian Super Cup and Club World Cup this term, although Rafa Benitez was in charge at the time.
