Kuzmanovic: “We just need an early goal”

APPIANO GENTILE – Zdravko Kuzmanovic was interviewed by Inter Channel ahead of the Nerazzurri’s match against Sassuolo at the Stadio Meazza tomorrow.

It’s been an unusual week. What frame of mind are you in as you head into this game against Sassuolo?
"It hasn’t been easy because it’s always going to be hard coming off of a 3-1 defeat to Juventus. We also spent most of the week training in the rain but I think we’ve prepared well for this match. We need the win."

How can Inter get back to playing as they were a while ago and start knocking out results again?
"I think we just need to get a goal. Everything changes once you score, you grow in confidence as well when you’re ahead. We have to try and get an early goal against Sassuolo to set ourselves loose, then it will be easier."

Three new team-mates, Botta, D’Ambrosio and Hernanes, were officially unveiled this week. What do they look like from the pitch?
"They’re very good players. Botta has been with us for a while and we know him a bit better but we’re getting to know Danilo and Hernanes as well now. I’m glad they’ve joined us. Hernanes is a more attacking player than me so I’ll let him bomb forward while I hold my position!"
