Roberto Mancini: The derby is always an important game


Internazionale coach Roberto Mancini says his side's position in the table will not affect the approach to tomorrow's derby against Milan.

Admitting that the season could have gone better, the Italian believes that three points against their rivals would be an important step ahead of next season.

"The derby is always an important game, regardless [of the teams' position in the table]," Mancini said.

"It's a bit poor compared to previous seasons but for us it should be a starting point for something important.

"It's a shame I cannot start with the same formation as the Verona game due to suspensions but whoever will play will do well.

"The players feel the derby, just like any other important game. As for me, I remember I used to dream about how to score the day before a derby but before there was more pressure, today there are many games so this aspect of the derby has gone missing.

"I hoped to see Internazionale in a better position [at this stage of the season] so if I have to give a rating to the season it would be a negative one.

"Milan were struggling but they are on the rise.

"[Zdravko] Kuzmanovic only trained for two days so I don't believe he will be on the bench."
