Inter's Dejan Stankovic: I would never be able to join AC Milan

The Serbian midfielder has made it clear that moving to the Rossoneri is not an option for him, while he also compared current coach Claudio Raniero to former boss Jose Mourinho
Inter midfielder Dejan Stankovic has stressed that he would never be able to leave the Nerazzurri for arch rivals AC Milan as he loves his current club too much.

In the past players such as Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf made the move to the Rossoneri, but Stankovic has insisted he will not follow in the footsteps of the duo.

"I've made my choices, until now they've always been the right ones. And I can tell you that I would never be able to join Milan. It's impossible, unimaginable," Stankovic was quoted as saying on the club's official website.

"I always want to show how much I love this shirt, you have to show you deserve to wear it. It's a weight on your shoulders but I do all in my power to honour it."

Stankovic then went on to discuss the differences between current trainer Claudio Ranieri and former coach Jose Mourinho, and stressed that neither is better than the other.

"Everyone is different from everyone else. Everyone has qualities and defects. Mourinho and Ranieri are different, of course, but one isn't better or worse than the other. And as players we always try to get the best from each of them; the best is what we need."

Ranieri's men resume Serie A action this Saturday at home versus Parma after a brief winter break. The game kicks off is at 20.45CET.
