Valentino Rossi Urges Inter To Win The Milan Derby


The man with a ‘need for speed’ hopes that the Italian champions can dispense the Diavoli after their slow start against Bari.

Motorcycle racer Valentino Rossi, a well-known and self-professed Inter fan, has urged the team to win the Milan derby this weekend against their city-rivals. The 30-year-old insists that the Nerazzurri must show they are the stronger outfit.

“I saw the first game of the season for Inter [a 1-1 draw against Bari],” he was quoted as saying by the Corriere dello Sport while in Indianapolis.

“They played as they did, but I do not feel that [coach Jose] Mourinho should be punished, in fact it was just the first game of the season.”

He also hoped that Inter would be victorious on the weekend for another reason, he does not want to be heckled should they lose to the Rossoneri.

“Saturday evening, it is an important match, because all us Interisti have seen this summer that we are a bit stronger, continued the multiple time MotoGP world champion.

“If Milan wins the derby I will get at least 35 messages!”
