Inter striker Edin Dzeko feels that at the moment, the team are not getting too preoccupied with their place in the Serie A table.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Rai Radio, as reported by FCInterNews, the 36-year-old stressed that the priority is simply to send off for the World Cup break in the right fashion by beating Atalanta and the focus is not too far beyond that.

Inter’s start to the season could be generously described as mixed, as the team have shown erratic form in the league, marked by a seeming inability to get the better of direct rivals at the top end of the table, particularly away from home.

There have been plenty of positives, both in terms of encouraging performances as well qualification for the Champions League round of sixteen from a tough group considered to be the “group of death.”

However, the Nerazzurri must find consistency, and the right way to do this could simply be to take things one match at a time.

Inter have been feeling the weight of the pressure at times, which has only mounted again after the disappointment of a Serie A defeat away to Juventus.

However, a win against Atalanta over the weekend would send Inter into the World Cup break on a high note, and would allow the team to return with renewed confidence that they are capable of securing important points away from home and against direct rivals.

“At the moment we’re not really thinking about the table,” Dzeko said, “particularly because it’s still so early and there are so many points to play for.”

“Now we’re preparing for the match against Atalanta, we hope to get a bit of rest before such an important match.”

“Our goal is to finish things off as well as we can before the break,” he added.
