Vecino: Inter want next Scudetto

Matias Vecino has urged Inter to take their ‘beautiful opportunity’ against Juventus and insisted that ‘we’ll be back fighting for the Scudetto.’

Inter will all-but-qualify for next season’s Champions League with victory over Juve in the Derby d’Italia this weekend, although they are destined to end at least 20 points behind the Bianconeri.

“We have the chance to end talk of the Champions League, also because others have difficult games this week,” Vecino told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’ll be a beautiful opportunity against Juve. It’s a game felt by the club. Juve have shown more consistency, so they must be a reference for not only us.

“We must try to get closer to their level and compete for the Scudetto. We can think about fighting for the title, but what counts is what happens on the pitch and we have to show that we’re worthy.

“We have to work. Next season we’ll be back fighting the Scudetto. It’s an objective for the club, but to say it now doesn’t make any sense.”
