Inter Milan coach Mazzarri excited ahead of derby debut

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri is looking forward to his Milan debut.

Inter will host AC Milan today.

"Of course the Milan Derby has a special fascination to it and as a Coach I try not to think about it until I step on to the field. At that moment I will realise what the Milan Derby really is," said Mazzarri in his Press conference.

"I must focus on helping the team play against Milan so the players can be ready to approach this game. I am more concerned with seeing my players adopt my style of football - one that is pleasing to watch, attacking and moving ball to feet.

"Rationally, the Derby is worth three points, but we are close to the fans and realise the difference. Certain games can also help with self-confidence or affect you psychologically. It means more to the supporters.

"A victory would be a huge confidence boost for the rest of the season, that is certain. If it goes wrong, I'll have to work to turn over a new leaf and focus on the next games."
