Former Inter and Juventus striker Aldo Serena has commented on the news that this weekend’s Derby D’Italia between two of his former employers looks set be played behind closed doors.

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy, the match looks set to be played without fans at the Allianz Stadium with an official announcement expected to arrive soon.

“It is a great loss to the side that plays at home as the fans give you that extra determination and psyche you up more,” he began an interview with Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset earlier today before going on to reflect on his personal experiences in playing in games played behind closed doors.

“I played a match in the Champions League behind closed doors we won but we struggled and certainly missed having the fans there.

“It is not nice for football to be played behind closed doors. It is a pity that this is the case but nothing else can be done in this situation.”

Serena spent a total of 11 years on Inter’s books between the years 1978 and 1985 and then 1987 to 1991 although he did spend four of those years out on loan with Como, Bari, AC Milan and Torino.

Serena made a total of 223 appearances across all competitions in an Inter shirt, in which he scored 78 goals and provided 11 assists. During his time with the Nerazzurri, he won a total of four trophies, including one UEFA Cup and one Serie A title.
