The Nerazzurri have undergone massive squad changes this summer.
"We'll start the new term with a lot of desire and with great expectations," the 31-year-old told the Corriere dello Sport.
"No matter how we finished the last season, we are not lacking motivation. I'll remember 2011-12 as a negative season, but that can happen after seven years of success.
"We certainly want to return to winning ways. Inter can fight for the title and we must challenge for the Scudetto.
"We will snub no games."
