Pandev: Bring on Inter!

Napoli’s Goran Pandev says he’d love the opportunity to progress and eventually face Inter in the Champions League this season.

Both sides have qualified for the last 16 stage and could play each other from the quarter-finals onwards should they get that far.

“It would be incredible to play Inter in Europe,” the Macedonian, on loan at the San Paolo from the Nerazzurri, told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“For now though, let us just enjoy this moment which is beautiful.”

The Azzurri qualified from their group, along with Bayern Munich, after beating Villarreal 2-0 in Spain on Wednesday.

“I now feel a part of this project,” continued the former Lazio player. “I returned to my real self with my two goals against Juventus recently.

“I’m now ready to have my say in the Italian championship and also the Champions League.”

UEFA rules mean that clubs from the same nation can’t face each other until at least the last eight stage of the tournament.
