Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic has shaken off an injury scare.

The midfielder went off during the 2-1 win over Swiss side Chiasso and Coach Claudio Ranieri admitted he was concerned as to what had happened.

“How am I? Feeling great,” the Serb told Inter Channel this evening.

“I went off 10 minutes from the end because I felt a little tired. It was a slight strain to the right thigh muscle, so after working so hard this week, it would’ve been silly to risk it.

“This was a good training session with the real conditions of a friendly game that was faced with effort and determination.

“The 90 minutes were useful with few substitutions at our disposal, plus we won.”
