Skriniar: "We didn't play well? We've won six out of seven... Spalletti given us winning mentality"
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan Skriniar discusses the upcoming derby this weekend.
Is there a result that you would sign up for right now?
“There are no half measures. We must win this game because it is part of our growing process. There is only victory on Sunday.”
Only in Bologna that Inter have dropped points this season, although solid play is still missing…
“But it is very important to win six out of seven games, even if they can say that we are not playing well. We have been able to bring home results and with that, calmly, we will improve.”
The international players have to travel a lot during this break, how much will this weigh on the derby?
“We all felt the importance of returning to Milan as soon as possible to get ready for this game, so that we can work on the details because this is how we win matches.”
Do you feel that this year you are heading towards the Scudetto?
“Our strength is to perhaps not to think about winning in the final part of the season. We are dealing with each game one by one and in the end, we will see where we are.”
How is working with Luciano Spalletti affecting both tactically and mentally?
“Spalletti has given us a winning mentality.”
Psychologically, do you think about the fact that there are only three central defenders at Inter?
“Yes, it is true that in the back, there are only three but it is not a problem. We do not even think about it after the injury of Vanheusden. We try to stay like this as things have been going well, we always think positively.”
