Juan Jesus: Inter must win Milan derby
Inter defender Juan Jesus has stated that his side cannot afford to drop points in Sunday's Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan, if they are to remain in the race for the league title.
The Seleção international, who was part of Brazil’s silver-winning side at the London Olympics, has highlighted the importance of this weekend's Serie A encounter.
The 21-year-old said: "The derby is one of the world's biggest club games, a dream fixture between two terrific sides. We must win the derby.
"Neither team will start as favourites, you never know what can happen in football.
"Robinho? I hope to keep him quiet."
Juan also discussed his relationship with head coach Andrea Stramaccioni, and had nothing but positive words for the Inter boss.
He added: "He's a young coach but he knows what he's doing, he's well prepared and he knows how to make you feel important and give you confidence."
Inter are currently third in the Scudetto, whilst Sunday’s opponents Milan are in eleventh.
The Derby della Madonnina, taking place at the shared San Siro, kicks off at 19:45 BST.
