Pioli doubts talk of Inter crisis

Chievo Coach Stefano Pioli does not believe the stories of a struggling Inter in crisis, but welcomes back Sergio Pellissier.

“Are Inter weaker than expected at the moment? Are you kidding? Look at the squad that Rafa Benitez has at his disposal for this game,” said Pioli.

“He has the likes of Esteban Cambiasso, Dejan Stankovic, Lucio, Davide Santon, Wesley Sneijder and Javier Zanetti. These are world class champions.

“Inter have so many great stars that they are never short of options. Above all what I fear about this team is their pride, as they'll be so fired up and eager to prove themselves after the derby defeat.

“They certainly won't be short on grit and determination. However, Inter will find themselves up against a Chievo side that will make life difficult for them.”

The Flying Donkeys have no real injury problems, as only Luciano is still on the treatment table.

“The most important thing is that Pellissier is back with us after a week of regular training. Sergio is absolutely crucial for us.”
