Former Inter and AC Milan midfielder Giancarlo Pasinato spoke about tomorrow’s Milanese derby in an interview with Italian radio station TMW Radio earlier today.
“Usually when a team comes in too favoured, they don’t win in the end. A derby is always a strange game, there are no favourites. It’s a different challenge from the others where you have to be careful and try not to give up anything.”
The 63-year-old Italian then discussed the question of the new stadium and what to do with the existing San Siro stadium.
“My heart says to me, let’s keep the San Siro, let’s restructure it and re-evaluate it with all the necessary precautions. On the other hand, however, making a stadium for each team would be an important step for the city and for both clubs.”
Pasinato made 184 appearances for Inter over his two spells with the club, first playing four years there before returning a year later to play another two. He scored 11 goals and provided one assist in that time, winning a league title and a Coppa Italia trophy with the Nerazzurri.
The 63-year-old made 42 appearances for the Rossoneri in his one season there, when the side were in Serie B.
The Rossoneri are currently 19 points behind the Nerazzurri in the league table but have started 2020 a little stronger than their intercity rivals. AC Milan have earnt 11 points since the turn of the decade, whereas Inter have only earnt 9 points in that time.
