Vieira keen for Inter to win Scudetto against AC Milan

Patrick Vieira is looking forward to Inter clinching the Scudetto in Sunday's derby against AC Milan.

"With Arsenal I won a title at White Hart Lane and one at Old Trafford. Now it's time to go to Milan," he said.

"Sunday's game will be something special and incomparable to anything I have seen in the past, England included.

"We are playing for the Scudetto and they are playing for a Champions League place. There will be such an atmosphere!

"But I thrive under pressure. These are the games that you dream of."

Vieira also commented on the aftermath of Inter's Champions League elimination at the hands of Liverpool, which caused the attempted resignation of Coach Roberto Mancini.

"It was the worst time," he recalled. "Mancini's comments caused some shockwaves in the dressing room, but in the 48 hours that followed he made everything clear.

"You don't need to be close friends to make a dressing room work - the important thing is to have the same objective.

"But we gave the right response. We never lost our heads and we beat Fiorentina and won away against Atalanta and Torino.

"I think that the end of this term has been the most important test of strength in recent years."
