Walter Samuel: "Derby is not like any other match. Who will win? Well..."
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Walter Samuel discusses the upcoming derby this Sunday.
“Who wins? Well, based on the standings then it is Inter but it is a derby and by definition, there are no favorites.”
Is it too soon to say that this is already a decisive turning point for this season?
“Decisive no, but fundamental yes. I would lie if I said that this is just a same football match as others. The truth is that it is worth at least a month in the league, in one sense or the other.”
Rosario, Buenos Aires, Roma, Madrid and Milan: you have a massive record in playing in derbies. How did you often prepare for these games?
“For me, it was always a matter of attitude. I did not speak much as I preferred to concentrate on the game with humility and leadership.”
