Stankovic has faith in Benitez

Serbian midfielder Dejan Stankovic has defended his Inter Coach Rafa Benitez who has come under increasing scrutiny of late following the team’s poor performances. Now the veteran Stankovic has shown faith and belief in Benitez and urged his team-mates to prove the doubters wrong.
“Benitez is the right man for Inter. We have great people working at this club and if they have chosen him, then it wasn’t by chance” , the Serb told Inter Channel. He insisted that the team was aware of the bad phase it was going through and were eagerly waiting to get back on track.
“Each of us gives everything out there on the field. If the results start going against us, people think that we lack desire, motivation and hunger to win”. ‘The Dragon’ stated that the criticism of the team makes them want to react stronger: “As the days go by, the desire to prove these claims wrong becomes even stronger. And I think now we are hungrier than last season”.
Inter may be six points off the pace in Serie A and behind leaders and city rivals Milan but Stankovic is not worried yet: “As they say in Italy, all that counts is what you have at the end. Now we have an important month ahead of us to close this year that will forever be remembered in the history of Inter”.
Having played at the top level for nearly 15 years now, ‘Stanko’ assures fans that ups and downs are a part of the game: “Certain things happen, even in football as in life there are highs and lows. The most important thing however is to be ready to react”.
Stankovic and his team-mates will travel to Chievo this Sunday afternoon hoping to get a positive result after having drawn two and lost one of their last three games. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
