Fiorentina midfielder, Marco Benassi says that he and his teammates have got a lot to prove in their Serie A encounter with Inter Milan today.

The 23-year old, while speaking with Inter TV and Sky Sports Italia in the pre-match press conference said that they are well motivated to go all the way and “prove we are not the same team” that lost 3-0 to Inter last August.

“We had a slow growth process, but now we are a very united group, there is a strong motivation in facing a side we were well beaten by five months ago, to prove that we are not the same team people saw back then.”

“We are in a positive period of form and this is the best chance we’ve had in a while to beat one of the big clubs. I think that with our mentality, we can fight it out with everyone, including teams who are on paper stronger than us.”

“We already showed against Milan that we can cause serious problems. I will always be tied to Inter because of my past there, but I must focus on the team I play for and I’m proud to be representing Fiorentina tonight.”
