Suazo targeting Inter upset

David Suazo believes Genoa can cause an upset when they travel to

face his former club Inter Milan at the San Siro on Sunday.

Inter currently lie four points clear of city rivals AC Milan

at the top of the Serie A table, having ended a run of

three-consecutive league draws with a 3-2 victory at Udinese last


Genoa are a creditable ninth in the table but are looking to

get back to winning ways after losing out in a seven-goal thriller

against Bologna last time out.

And Suazo believes I Rossoblu have what it takes to cause an

upset, although he acknowledged their defensive performance will

need to improve.

He said: “We got caught out at the back but we managed to

score three goals of our own.

“It displeases me because we would have deserved another

result. Although the defeat is going to help this team grow from an

all-round point of view.

Jose Mourinho is set to have nearly all of his internationals

available, although Davide Santon and Cristian Chivu are both

injured. Dejan Stankovic is likely to come into midfield to replace

the suspended Esteban Cambiasso.

Wesley Sneijder is set to remain in midfield while there

could be a starting role for Mario Balotelli.

But the league leaders continue to be unsettled by

speculation over the future of their manager.

The former Porto boss has found himself heavily-linked with a

move to Real Madrid at the end of the season, with Inter president

Massimo Moratti having to continually deny that his coach will be

leaving the San Siro to take over from Manuel Pellegrini in the

Bernabeu hotseat.

“Mourinho has a contract with Inter,” Moratti told Gazzetta

dello Sport. “But besides this, I am certain that he will happily


“The newspapers talk about Mourinho as a character,”

continued Moratti. “But they forget that, above all, he is a great


“He takes care of every minor detail. He is very focused on

the work done in training and I believe he deserves all the money

he gets from his contract.”
