Inter's Giampaolo Pazzini Relishing Fiorentina Clash

Pazzini is looking forward to facing his old club...
Inter striker Giampaolo Pazzini believes it's important for the Nerazzurri to bounce back from the 1-0 loss to Juventus with a solid outing against his former club Fiorentina.

The match will take place Wednesday afternoon, originally rescheduled due to the Beneamata's World Club Cup commitments in December.

"I hope to always score a lot of goals, especially now to earn important points for us," he explained to Inter Channel.

"There is bitterness after the defeat against Juve. It's true that we didn't play as we know how in the first-half and we were too passive so we lost. Now tomorrow's match becomes even more important, it gives us the opportunity to close the gap [on Milan at the top of the standings]."

The 26-year-old spent several seasons with the Viola, but eventually left to find playing time at Sampdoria after failing to hold down a place in the line-up due to the form of Alberto Gilardino.

"Fiorentina was my home for a long time. I was there for four years and experienced plenty of satisfaction. But now, I just think about winning with Inter because that's what we need to do," he concluded.

Pazzini has scored three goals since joining the Nerazzurri in winter transfer window.
