Diego Milito is pleased with the progress Inter have made during pre-season and is confident that they will enjoy a strong Serie A campaign.
The Nerrazzurri were beaten 4-0 by Valencia earlier this month, but then held reigning Serie A champions Juventus to a 1-1 draw in friendly clashes in America and Milito sees plenty of reasons for optimism in 2013-14 under new boss Walter Mazzarri.
"We're working very well and the team is on the up. We lacked a bit of flair in the early matches but that's natural in pre-season. We've definitely moved forward from a tactical perspective though," the Argentine striker told the Inter website.
"Right from day one the coach asked even us guys who are coming back from injury to follow his tactical instructions and this is very useful for us. Things are going well and we hope this continues.
"We'll go far, as high up the table as possible. I'm confident, when you play for Inter you always need to aim for the top."
Inter begin their Scudetto campaign against Genoa on August 25.
