Milan's Marco Borriello Looking Forward To Inter Clash

The Rossoneri and Nerazzurri will face each other in the second matchday of Serie A...
Milan striker Marco Borriello seems to have finally put all his physical problems behind him as he prepares to kick-off the new Serie A season in the best possible way.

The Rossoneri's first game of the season is against Siena, which is an important encounter, according to Borriello, but the main match will arrive in the second round as Milan take on Inter.

"The derby match is a great clash and maybe the fact that it's in the second matchday of Serie A is a good thing because we face Inter with fresh legs," explained the former Genoa player.

"The game against Siena is one that I look forward to as if it was a Champions League final and I admit that I feel excited.

"After all, Siena reminds me of a nice memory, because it was my header for Kaka's goal that allowed us to win the Scudetto that year [2003-04].

"This year it will be important to start off with the right foot. The three points are always fundamental."

Last season, the 27-year-old striker only managed to play seven league games and score one goal for Milan in an injury-tormented campaign.
