Hernan Crespo has no grudge against young Inter teammate Mario Balotelli.

Balotelli is likely to start today's derby against AC Milan ahead of Crespo, who insists: "All that counts is that Inter do well. At this moment in time it doesn't matter if a 17-year-old or a 40-year-old is leading the line, as long as we achieve our objectives.

"Clearly I would love to play and take centre stage, but I think the personal aspect has to be put to one side."
