De Vrij: 'Not a duel with Ibrahimovic'

Stefan de Vrij sees the Derby della Madonnina as a wider issue and not just himself against Zlatan Ibrahimovic. ‘It’s Inter against Milan.’

It kicks off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT), click here for the line-ups and LIVEBLOG.

“I am always concentrated and it won’t be any different this evening just because it’s the derby,” the defender told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s Inter against Milan for me, not De Vrij against Ibrahimovic. We’ll all try to put in a great performance and win the match.”

De Vrij has to start, as Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Roberto Gagliardini, Ashley Young, Radja Nainggolan and Ionut Radu all tested positive for COVID-19.

“I was on international duty, but I heard about the positive tests. It’s disappointing, but we’ll play anyway and nothing changes as far as we are concerned.”
