Milan Škriniar spoke to DAZN ahead of tonight’s crucial Serie A match between Udinese and Inter at the Dacia Arena. Here is what the Slovak defender said to the broadcaster during an interview recorded earlier this week: “My future is here at Inter, I want to continue here. The fans often jokingly ask me to change my name but they’re used to it now.”
The former Sampdoria stopper urged his teammates to stay fully focused on the match against the Friulani, who are currently in the midst of a relegation battle: “We can wrap things up quickly, three wins will secure Champions League football. It won’t be easy in Udine because it’s an important game for them but it is for us as well and we’re going there to win.”
The 24-year-old was also taken to task on the fact he is yet to score this season: “I’m sorry about it and I miss scoring, I’m trying and will keep trying in the last four games. Toughest opponent? I don’t know who’s the best. Ronaldo is very quick and then there are those who fight for every ball. This year, Džeko was the hardest to mark as he’s very strong physically.
“The perfect defender? Van Dijk’s marking, Koulibaly’s heading, the playing out from the back of my teammate Stefan de Vrij. Myself for one-on-ones? That’s up to those who judge me, we’ll opt for Sergio Ramos otherwise.
“I always have to thank Marco Giampaolo because he always put his trust in me at Sampdoria, even after I made mistakes. I never expected to have a career like this, I always dreamed of playing at a big club like Inter. I now know that I can still improve a lot.”
