Inter Milan’s Stankovic: Winter break won’t affect our form

The Nerazzurri won the Coppa Italia match with Empoli 2-0 on Tuesday.

The Serbian ace told Sky Italia: “We played a good match and we are ready for when the championship resumes on Saturday, but we know the game with Torino will not be an easy one.”

He added: “We went into the break when we were doing very well and from what I have seen in Empoli and Bahrain, we haven’t lost much.

“The holidays certainly take away a bit of physical strength and focus, but there is a lot up for grabs this year and if we have lost anything, we will have to get it back quickly.

“Torino are well organised on the pitch and they will cause us problems for 90 minutes. However, if we play like we can, and remain focused and determined, we can win.”
