Stefano Pioli was interviewed by Inter Channel moments ago ahead of tonight’s Serie A fixture against Napoli at the San Siro.
The Inter tacticial underlined the positive energy owener Zhang Jindong’s presence instills in the team: “His presence is always very stimulating, he made us understand once more how important our season finale is. He gave us the motivation for the remaining matches.”
Pioli then moved on to Napoli stating that “they have quality but we need to depend on our own quality, we need a performance that displays a spirit of sacrifice, that is intelligent tactically and show how compact we are. Milan’s draw? Our motivation stems from our not so good form, we want to return to performing to the best of our ability on the pitch.”
The Inter coach spoke with Premium Sport underlining tonight’s fixture stating “this is a very important match for us, the standings are what they are, we want to improve and do everything we can to do just that. Zhang told us the plans for today as well as for the future and we have to give everything to make him happy. I think that tonight’s match is a great opportunity to demonstrate that we are a great team when faced with a great opponent. Our ideas are clear, we need to put what we’ve practiced during the week into action onto the pitch.”
In conclusions Stefano Pioli gave a brief statement to Sky Sports parting with the huge crowd expected at the San Siro stating that “we will give everything we have, we want to give a great performance with a lot of quality and a will to work together. Napoli are strong but when the opposition is good the opportunities to take aren’t that many. I’ve looked to stimulate the squad. With regards to my own future it depends on the results, it’s nothign to worry about and soon we will have a meeting with the club as is normal to have.”
