Sporting director Piero Ausilio insists the Coppa Italia is important for Inter - “it’s the right time to win something”.
The Nerazzurri face city rivals Milan in the quarter-finals of the competition, and the director discussed the match at last night’s Christmas party.
“We never stop, we’re used to working,” Ausilio told Inter TV.
“In England they play constantly and for us with the transfer market open it’s difficult to rest. We’re ready, we’ve got important games. There’s also the Coppa Italia, as if the league wasn’t enough to stay focused.
“We’ll be more than ready for the derby. Beyond the game itself it’s something different, a competition where we can win a trophy and for Inter it’s the right time to win something.
“In the past the Coppa Italia has kicked off a lot of success, so let’s hope so.”
