“Last year we didn’t play in Europe, and this in a sense has influenced the team. Now we’re back in the race, and we aim to turn the page. The pressure is always there, playing for a club that has a great tradition and this year will be no different.” Thoughts and words signed Juan Jesus, interviewed by Yahoo Brazil before the opening game in Group F of the Europa League against Dnipro. The Brazilian talked about a variety of topics starting with his compatriots Hernanes, Dodò and Jonathan: “He is a player who can change the game at any time, either with an assist for the attacker or with a shot from outside. Dodò and Jonathan are two very fast wingers, they have already helped the team a lot.” Among the idols of JJ is obviously Dejan Stankovic: “Wearing shirt number 5 for me is a great honor. I want to conquer everything that he was able to win with this shirt and make history.”

Priority Europa League or the league? “Our commitment is to play in both competitions to 100%. In a season of change it is always important to win a title. Dnipro? I think that the match today is one of the most difficult in the group. They are able to put pressure throughout the game and have two very fast wigners. We are in a difficult group. Saint-Etienne is a well equipped team, while Qarabag, which I don’t know anything about, will be tough tackle.”

Responsibilities of playing in a club like Inter: “I always thank Mazzarri for his confidence in me. Even though, at the end of the season I got injured, I played some good matches this year, and God willing I can reach 100 games with this shirt. Despite the fact that I am young, leaders and staff have always had faith in me.” Finally, a comment on the situation in the Selecao’s Maicon: “He was one of the people who helped me when I arrived in Milan. He’s a guy who has always trained well and who has written the history of Inter. Fans here call him il Colosso. Maicon. has always been an extroverted guy, but when there was serious work to be done he did his part.”
