He got a quick start with two goals against Cittadella and Rodrigo Palacio is ready to score many more. This and much Inter striker Rodrigo Palacio talked about in an exclusive interview with Andrea Paventi for Sky Sport 24: “The goals I scored in the TIM Cup plays an important role, it’s always important for a striker to score. The matches that count have started and fortunately I had the chance to score.”

The most lasting thing of the preseason, in addition to the important work previously done in Pinzolo and then in the U.S., according to Palacio are “the coach’s ideas, we have worked extensively on how he wants the team to play. We still need to improve, but I think that you already can see that little extra something.”

If the mix of young players and more experienced players that’s been created in the team can lead to great results: “We want to fight for the Scudetto and continue like this match after match. If the Scudetto is something we see as possible? We’re not talking about it, we will work to finish as high up in the league as possible.”

Not only Inter, but also the other top teams in Serie A 2013/14 has been reinforced: “Juventus and Napoli are slightly ahead, but the league is balanced and there are several teams that are candidates to win the Scudetto. If it will be a season in which the difference between the big teams and the ones chasing a place in the Champions League isn’t so big? Yes, it’s true, there are seven or eight teams that can fight for the Scudetto.”

If Walter Mazzarri has struck him in a particular way: “I like how he’s training, he works hard. He hasn’t asked me for anything in particular compared to the other seasons, he asked me to do what I did last year and try to score goals. If I’m the one who mustn’t fail because we are waiting for Milito and because Icardi and Belfodil just arrived? Diego is very important for the team, we’re waiting for him because he can make a difference, but Mauro and Belfodil can do well.”

Focus is then directed to Inter’s next opponent: on Sunday the Giuseppe Meazza will be visited by Genoa, the same team that experienced unforgettable moments thanks to Rodrigol: “I don’t want to send any messages to any of my old teammates, but it will be a special game for me. I left many friends and wonderful years behind me, but now I’m only thinking about Inter. If it will be difficult to get a good start at San Siro? On Sunday, we mustn’t make any mistakes, we need to play a good game and show everyone that we can be up there.”
