Udinese coach Andrea Stramaccioni is delighted to count on Dejan Stankovic as his No2.

Stankovic played for Strama at Inter Milan.

"I chose Stankovic because of his presence in the Inter locker room. He was already more than a player there and I am convinced he'll do very well.

"There was a special rapport between us. The best thing about Dejan is that, despite having won so much, he still wants to win more with this club."
