Inter wing back Ashley Young discussed tonight’s Serie A against Bologna in an interview with Italian broadcaster Inter TV moments ago, ahead of kick-off.

“Today we want the three points and then to move on, which is the most important thing.”

The 35-year-old English veteran, whose contract expires at the end of this season, then touched on this evening’s opposition, the Rossoblu.

“Bologna are a strong team, however they play. Whether they put a three- or four-man defense. They can do anything, we don’t have to think about them, but about ourselves.

“We must stay focused and have the right attitude compared to the last time we faced each other.”

Finally, Young spoke about teammate Romelu Lukaku in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN before the game.

“I have known Lukaku since we were together at United, I expected this impact from him. I think it was a great loss for them and that Inter gained with him.

“Just look at what he does on the pitch, he’s fantastic. For us he’s a leader, he’s hungry for goals and wins. He wants to win trophies, he’s a born winner.”

Young, who joined the Nerazzurri at the start of this year from Premier League side Manchester United, has made 11 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 684 minutes.

In that time, he has provided two assists and helped the side keep two clean sheets.

Antonio Conte’s Inter are currently third in the Serie A table after nine games, sitting on 18 points, five behind rivals and league leaders AC Milan.

Juventus beat local rivals Torino earlier today and secured a key three points, that allowed them to move ahead of the Nerazzurri in the table, putting the pressure on for today’s fixture.

Bologna are currently 10th in the league, sitting on 12 points. They have won three out of their last four games in the league, only dropping points to Napoli in this period.
