Stankovic: "Another step forward"


"I have to gain match fitness by taking advantage of every chance the coach gives me"

MILAN - After making his return from injury in Sunday's win at Siena, Dejan Stankovic captained Inter in the first half of Thursday's Tim Cup victory over Reggina.

"I'm pleased I played again today," said the Serbian midfielder. "I hadn't played for a long time so it's important for me to take advantage of every chance the coach gives me so I can gain match fitness."

Inter face Juventus next week in the first leg of the cup quarter-finals. "As always, we will play to win," said Stankovic. "It will also be better because there will be more people at the stadium.

"Victories are the best medicine to feel happy. We're a great group we're all ready to help our companions. This is another reason why the positive results are coming."
