“We need the victory, a positive result would give us more confidence going forward and Udinese are above us in the table, so I consider this a head-to-head for position,” the defender told Inter Channel.
“Everyone knows Antonio Di Natale’s quality, as he is a great striker who scored 200 Serie A goals, so we must be very careful with him.”
The biggest threat is on the touchline, as Coach Stramaccioni and assistant manager Dejan Stankovic are former Inter men.
“Stramaccioni knows us very well and I think that can only be an advantage for him. However, we have changed a great deal since he left, so we’ll try to surprise him,” added Juan Jesus.
“We’ve had the whole week to work with Mancini and really needed that to prepare for this appointment with Udinese.”
