Skriniar: "Tough CL group but we want to move on to next round. Cannot wait to challenge Ronaldo and Messi"
“Against Bologna, we really wanted to win and we did. The team was disappointed about the start of the new season and now we have to recover the dropped points. My injury? it’s the past now and I am fine.”
That was Milan Skriniar speaking about Inter at the Slovakian national team training camp.
“We wanted to return to the Champions League and we managed to do it, now we will try to get out of the group and move on. It is a difficult group but that of Hamsik is even more complicated than ours (Napoli have PSG, Liverpool and Red Star). We all know about Barcelona and they are the great favorites but Tottenham have been playing in the Champions League for years as well. The fact that we are hosting them at the San Siro right away could be a disadvantage for us but doing well on the debut would be an excellent start for the entire competition.
“On the personal level, I can say that I cannot wait to challenge Messi in Europe and Ronaldo in Italy. The arrival in Serie A of the Portuguese helps Italian football movement without a doubt. The world’s spotlight will be on our league.”
