Ausilio: "Perisic? Meeting our expectation. Totti? I am only interested in the game itself"
“Against Juventus is an important game, but it is not decisive. We are in line for our objectives planned at the start of the season and we hope to be there in the end. Inter are in a good position coming into this game. Game of the year? All games are worth three points. It is normal that the one against Jvuentus will be important because there is prestige. We will face one of the best teams in Europe, the best in Italy. But we want to make things difficult for them.”
That was Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio commenting on the big showdown this Friday at the Allianz Stadium. At the Gran Gala del Calcio award, Ausilio also talks about Totti’s words after the controversial game yesterday.
“We are only interested our work on the pitch. I saw a good match, a good Inter. We must also recognize the value of Roma which also offered a great performance. Round of applause for these guys who went in a difficult stadium but proved to be eager for victory.
“Perisic? He is meeting our expectations, like all of his teammates. He makes contribution every Sunday and when he has the opportunity in the Champions League. I think it is normal to expect more and more because we do have important projects here. The Croatian is an important part of this team.”
Last words are for his soon-to-be collaborator Giuseppe Marotta.
“He will certainly bring us, if he comes, experience. He has been involved in football for many years, doing so with professionalism and experience. Marotta will find a very strong club, made of passion and history.”
