Inter are preparing for Friday night’s trip to the San Paolo to face Napoli in a vital game in the race for Champions League places next season. Coach Stefano Pioli has been speaking at his pre-match press conference.
NO FEAR: “We have done well so far and through our daily work I believe we can improve even more. We certainly have no fear about the match tomorrow because each game has its own dangers. We have big personalities in this team and that’s important.
ON ICARDI: “He’s proving to be one of the best strikers in the world. He is young and has room for more improvement. He’s a great professional who works so hard and is an example to the rest of the squad.”
ON THE JANUARY MARKET: “I’ve only been here three weeks so I’ve not identified any new targets yet. I will meet with Suning in the future to discuss our options”.
ON GABIGOL: “Gabriel has great quality and he is doing well adjusting to Italian football. When the time is right, he will get his chance in the team”.
JOAO MARIO OR KONDOGBIA: “Joao Mario has important characteristics and he certainly has more technical ability than Kondogbia but the choices I make depends on the opponents”.
