Milan Skriniar Keen On Achieving Champions League Qualification

Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar is keen on his side picking up three points when they entertain Juventus at San Siro. The Nerazzurri are currently just one point behind both Lazio and AS Roma in the pursuit of the Champions League places and the Slovakian has urged the need to keep their recent winning run going.

He told Inter TV: “There is a lot of will, we have to give everything we have from the start, I hope to be able to win together with the fans. There are a lot of people here and we believe in their support, we want a great result also for their sakes.” Meanwhile, when asked whether the club can prove an obstacle to Juventus winning the league, he added: “No, we only think about ourselves, about our objective of reaching the Champions League. This is our dream.”


Former Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has said that Juventus had the opportunity to sign Napoli's Slovakian star Marek Hamšík when he was at Brescia, but ultimately turned down the opportunity.

It has proved to be a costly affair for Juventus, as they have been struggling to replace the old guard. They have just returned to competing at the top of the Italian Serie A, but Cobolli Gigli reckons that Juventus could have won the title last season had they had a player like Marek Hamšík.
