Skriniar admits that ‘for Inter fans it is always nice when Milan lose’ ahead of San Siro return

By Euan Burns -

Paris Saint-Germain defender Milan Skriniar has shown his Inter allegiances ahead of the Champions League clash with AC Milan on Tuesday night.

Speaking during his press conference (via Milan News), the Slovakian centre-back who left Inter in the summer to join the French side was asked if he has heard from any of his former teammates in the lead-up to this game.

He stressed that no player has told him he must beat Milan, but he knows that his former fans would certainly enjoy it if PSG win at San Siro tomorrow.

“The derby here was always special. I often hear from my former teammates, we have a very good relationship. Nobody asked me this, but for the Inter fans it’s always nice when Milan lose,” he said.

One of the big talking points is that Gianluigi Donnarumma will be back at San Siro to take on his former team, and Skriniar is well aware of the atmosphere that can be created at the stadium in these sorts of scenarios.

“I know very well that it will be a difficult match, because I played for six years for Inter: I know how to face this stadium as an opponent. We have to stay focused and do our things. If we do that we can get a result,” Skriniar said.

“When you play at home and the fans push you, it can influence you. The same will be the case tomorrow: Milan will have the entire stadium that will push them forward. We also want to achieve good results away from home.”

Skriniar also acknowledged that Milan are in the middle of a dip in form but he knows it will be a really tough Champions League game.

“It will be a special match. Tomorrow a tough match awaits us, different from the first leg. Milan has a bit of difficulty but when you are in a period like this you manage to bring out something more. They have great quality and players, we have to be careful. I’m not saying we can close the group tomorrow but develop the group the way we want,” he said.

  1. Why? Milan losing means the league gets no coefficient points. Any sensible fan of any Serie A team has european success of these clubs in their best interest.
    Dumb ass mfer

      1. No I dont. Serie A is still behind La Liga and Inter winning the UCL wouldve done wonders for the coefficient. Especially since the new format will introduce 5 UCL spots. At this rate were likely seeing calcio drop below bundesliga rather than overtake La Liga.
        You dont know what youre talking about

  2. skriniar can 4get it, u cannot come inbtw cousins. inter wil cheer ac on 2moro for the beterment of brodahood and serie a period.

  3. I am an Inter Fan and I definitely would not be happy that Milan lose vs PSG for many reasons:-
    1. We do not want Milan out of Euro football after the groups. Milan is our rival in serie A and they will be a greater threath without Euro football
    2. We would like that Skriniar will be ridiculed in his ex-home ground and how much I wish I could be there to give him a traitor welcome
    3. Then there is the league coefficient as already explained by someone else earlier.
    Skriniar must have been referring to Serie A football when he mentioned that Inter fans will be happy anytime that Milan lose as long as Milan remain a rival as even happens with any other team who is a rival in Serie A e.g I was not happy that Milan lost to Juve a few weeks ago but I was happy that Milan did not win vs Napoli later.
