You have to know Inter well, I have seen a lot of them. times, and play the best possible. In the end, it’s a football game. In terms of history, Inter is older than us. The past doesn’t count, it doesn’t matter to be a favorite . What happens tomorrow matters” .

With possible fans whistling the UEFA anthem

“It’s a day to celebrate, to feel happy. By both fans. Bygones are bygones. This is an incredible competition. UEFA organizes it and we support it unconditionally. We will not whistle, let’s have fun.”

On what worries him about Inter

“There are many things. It’s a team used not only to defend. With a 0-0 scoreline it feels like it’s winning. The way Onana combines with Bastoni, Azerbi, Darmian. It’s a team that knows how to contact its attackers very well. Lautaro , Dzeko, Lukaku, Correa. If you let them play, they will sink you. We will try to defend them as much as possible. And we will be on the ball”.

About Haaland’s figures
