Milan Skriniar gave a long interview to Hat Trick magazine. There are many topics addressed by the Inter defender and the first argument is related to the value of his card: " I'm glad, but we all know that the sums increased very quickly in football, probably disproportionately high. After all, about five years ago "No defender was worth € 60 million. Now it is almost normal, defensive players are also bought for € 80 million. But I know or rather believe that someone will surely surpass me soon ". Because? " Because we want young players to grow and progress also in Slovakia ". Wouldn't it be better for you to have your card increased? " I said it because it was too good for the others. But of course it will be fine for me if my card increases and I will be such a popular player. But I have to prove it on the field and still grow because I'm only twenty-four. In that case, the my price will continue to rise ". How did you react after the draw for the Champions League group? " Personally I was happy, because we play soccer mainly to play against the best. Both Dortmund and Barcelona have been at the forefront for years with great performances. I couldn't wait to play games with them and I can't wait despite this year did not go well when we drew against Slavia and then lost to Barcelona " . Wouldn't it be easier to play in a group with easier and less famous rivals to go ahead in the Champions League? " Perhaps it would be easier, but even teams like Zenit, Shakhtar Donetsk or Slavia Praga have a certain quality and the Slavs showed it to us in September. However, you want to play in the biggest stadiums and against the best and most famous rivals like Barcelona and Dortmund ". Are you happy that Slavia Prague is the fourth? " I admit that seeing Slavia in the same group made me happy. The past cannot be neglected, so for the good of the family, I was happy that the Champions League would have led me to play so close to home ." In the first game you found out what? " That Slavia can play football and he played a really fantastic game here in Milan. No, we didn't underestimate them, we prepared as for any other Serie A rival ." Confess, did they surprise you? " I have to admit that the Slavs caught us a little by surprise. Especially as far as they ran. I also saw part of their game with Dortmund or Barcelona and they played very well again. But sometimes it's like that in football. "We have failed against the Slavia and I do not want to underestimate their performance in any way. It is particularly difficult to play against a team that runs, attacks and is tireless. This is the power of the Slavia. From what I heard and read, everyone was surprised." from the way in which Slavia managed to press Barcelona ". The other two in the group? " In terms of holding and working with the ball, Barcelona is among the best in the world if not the best. Dortmund has a high quality but does not keep the ball at that level like Barça. But again it is strong in other things, like the speed of the attackers ". Who do you consider a more difficult opponent in the group? Dortmund or Barcelona? " Barcelona. I had never played against Borussia before, so I was wondering what the matches would do and what they would be like ." Both teams, Barcelona and Dortmund, have some of the biggest stadiums in Europe, does this also have a role? " Certainly. I like it when the stadiums are full, the fans cheer, they scream when there's a turbulent atmosphere. It's not false that the fans are the twelfth player on the pitch. And what I heard is particularly true in Dortmund, because their yellow wall, the high stand, is famous. Every club would like such fans and atmosphere . " If you had to say how will your F group standings end up in the end? " I know it will be difficult, but I think we will pass the group. And if I have to say the standings, I will say Barcelona first, we second, Dortmund third and Slavia fourth" . So are you hoping to fight Dortmund for second place, rather than fighting Slavia for third place and the opportunity to play the Europa League? " I still believe that we will fight to get past the Champions League group. This is what we all want in the locker room, this is our goal ." (Hattrick.cz)
