Before the match, Dzeko addressed the media and said that he is very pleased that his team is at the very top.
”Currently we are in the top, but the season is very long and it is important who will eventually be the first. I think between us, Inter, Napoli, Fiorentina, and of course Juventus, that we should not write off as favorite,” said Dzeko and added:
”There are couple of phenomenal player in Napoli, but the best is Higuain. Gonzalo, together with Miralem Pjanic, is the best player in Serie A.”
For the end of addressing, Diamond admitted that Inter wanted to bring him this year and Mancini was pretty interested for his services, since he knows him well from the time when they worked together in Manchester City.
”He tried to bring me, but there was nothing concrete. I’m very happy here, Mancini is the man who brought me to City and allowed me to play at the higher level. We won together and I was annoyed that I’m not playing, and he knew it, but he never blamed me. I was called ”super replacement” in England, because I would score goals when I enter the match and I did not like it. It is not true that I was happy when Mancini left the City.”
