Inter director, Beppe Marotta insists that the team is stable in finances, but will not make "any investments" in January, as they play against Juve in the Derby d’Italia.
It kicks off at 19.45 GMT.
“Inter are one of the most important clubs in the world. There was a certain transition period, we want to get back to where Inter belong, and the title Derby d’Italia means a great deal for a prestigious fixture.
“Our duty is to give our all, with the aim of also getting a great result,”
“I can reassure everyone that we are working to ensure consistency for every employee, it is absolutely not an emergency situation. I can’t give a full rundown of the situation, but Inter are, have been and will be one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
Antonio Conte is facing his old team, although
was not there for the pre-match team talk.
“We saw the intensity of the work done in training, how the match was prepared, and are confident it’ll be a great game of football.
“Naturally, motivation is important in sport and there’s no lack of it here. This is still an intermediary game in the process of the season, so of course all our fans want to celebrate and see their team play beautiful, effective football, but there are many games still to be played and the big risks are slipping up in lesser fixtures.
“So this game can have a significance in the season, but it is far from decisive.”
There were questions if Christian Eriksen could go away on loan, and if so, will he be replaced pending the financial situation at Inter?
“Piero Ausilio is working on the Eriksen case and as soon as there is something concrete to report, we’ll tell you.
“We received some indications and guidelines from the club, so we cannot make any investments and should not expect important developments.
“The group should be respected for the work done and achievements made."
