Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti is eager to deflect expectations to the players.
Spalletti recognises much is expected from himself after his arrival from Roma.
"We had 40 days to work and get to know each other, beginning a journey that will take us I know not where, but we must travel it with a sense of belonging and pride. We must bring the message of the fans who filled the stadiums in friendlies, met us at the airport in China and stood outside the hotel to salute us.
“Over the last few days, the papers have said I was the most important new buy of the side, but the torch should be shone on the players, as they are the most important element. We are dealing with great players and great men.
“We might run into some difficulties and lose some games, as all teams will, but our opponents must spit blood to beat us and even that might not be enough for them. Our players want to send a clear and unequivocal message.
“San Siro must be for us and our fans a sporting meeting of emotions. We love each other madly and there is no possibility of betrayal. This is what we must show."
