Juan Jesus: ‘Scudetto next year’

Inter defender Juan Jesus insists Inter will have a stronger team next year - ‘to win the Coppa Italia and Scudetto’.

The Nerazzurri have fallen far short of expectations this season, and currently lie eighth in Serie A, but the Brazilian believes things will improve next season.

“The directors are working for the good of Inter,” Jesus told assembled media at the opening of a new underground stop.

“Next year we’ll start with a strong team to win the Coppa Italia and the Scudetto. We’ll try to finish the season well on Sunday, then start off well next year.

“We can’t make mistakes anymore, we’ve been out of the Champions League for too long.

“We have to reach higher levels, Inter is a club which has won a lot, and we have to get back to those levels.”

The centre-back also confirmed that he will stay at Inter this summer.

“I have to train well and prove to the Coach that I deserve a place in the team. I have a long contract, I’m an Inter player and I will be for many years to come.”
