Stankovic ahead of clash

“Let’s put the game on the scales and see what Juventus could win or lose and what Inter could win or lose. At the moment, the team with the most to lose is Juve because they are fighting for the Scudetto and the pressure will certainly be on them. ”

“They are playing well, they’re in the Coppa Italia final, but the Derby d’Italia always carries its own weight. And remember, Inter are the only Italian team to have won the treble.”

“Inter are looking to bounce back and get things back on track yet again. We want to win; we’re going to Turin to win the game and it won’t be easy. But I think Inter will play with a little less pressure on them.”

Stankovic is still looking for his first goal in Serie A, on question is this the match: “When I was a kid, I was told that great games are meant for great players. So, we’ll see … It would certainly be nice because I’ve never ended a season without scoring a single goal.”

Inter’s trio on situation in club

On media accusations that he refused to go on bench in the match agains’t Atalanta Diego Forlan replied: “A lot can be said after the event, but I think it’s important that people know something, and that is what the press have reported is wrong. I have respect for the Inter fans, for the shirt, and I haven’t come here to mess things up. If I have to apologise because some people think I’ve made a mistake, then I apologise, we can all make mistakes, but now I want to say what actually happened.  There are some troublemakers out there who know how to take advantage of certain situations. We’re all very much together and there’s no problem. It’s true that things aren’t going well at the moment, but I’m keen to do well, I want to play, score lots of goals, and help the team.”


Stankovic ahead of clash agains’t Juventus: “Juventus have much more to lose than Inter. They are fighting for the Scudetto and we know that brings a lot of extra pressure. They really can not afford to drop any points. There will be even more pressure on them if AC Milan win their league game on Saturday. It hurts to see us like this in the league table. However, we have some important games coming up against Udinese and Lazio for third place. We are still a feared opponent.”


Pazzini ahead of clash agains’t Juventus: “Motivation comes by itself in a game like this. Juventus have more to lose than us, while we want to do well, above all for President Massimo Moratti. The President has always stuck right by us and that is wonderful for the team, to have someone like him putting his faith in us and pushing us forward. It’s important. We will continue to believe in third place until it becomes mathematically impossible. It’s pointless making calculations now or looking round to what the other sides are doing. First of all, we have to start winning.”
