In an exclusive interview for Sky Sport 24 the defender spoke about the game against AC Milan, about Inter, his contract and Portugal

Rolando has already played one derby and won it. Now he’s preparing to play the second game of the season against the Rossoneri. He told Sky Sport 24: “It’s a special game‎. Right now we know that if we win the derby we’ll take a massive step towards Europa League qualification.”

On the opposition and whether the prospect of facing Mario Balotelli could make him lose sleep: “No, no, that’s not something that worries me at all. Besides, I don’t sleep much anyway,” he smiled. “He’s a powerful forward, but what’s more important is that we play well. AC Milan’s weak points? None of that matters in a derby. It’s a game where no one needs any extra motivation, any weak points are hidden.”

“Not everything in football can be explained,” the Nerazzurri defender said when asked about Inter’s inconsistent form this season. “Just as when we lose a game despite playing well. What do Inter lack for us to close the gap to Juve and Roma? Time to work on the changes that have taken place at the club. Next season we can do better, thanks also to the new players who will arrive.” One such player, for example, will be Nemanja Vidic: “Good players are always welcome here. He has a lot of experience and can help us in that respect.”

On his new contract: “It’s better for me to wait until the end of the season before I say anything, as at the moment we have important objectives we want to reach. Then I’ll speak to Inter and Porto.”
