Pandev looking forward to Inter clash

Goran Pandev; photo: daylife.comOn Saturday, Napoli faces Inter on the road in a match with huge motivation for Goran Pandev against his former club.

Goran Pandev is expected to start for Napoli in the game against Inter on Saturday because Edinson Cavani sustained an injury in the Napoli vs. Villarreal game yesterday in the Champions League so Cavani is unlikely to play against Inter.  That means a great opportunity for Pandev to get some revenge against his former club.  Pandev will certainly get booed by the Inter fans upon his return but he will be highly motivated and his agent stated today that Pandev has great desire to score against Inter.

Pandev made one start for Napoli earlier in the campaign but he was pretty quiet as he played together with the backup strikers Mario Santana and Giuseppe Mascara.  However, if Pandev gets the start against Inter, as expected, he will be joined in attack by Marek Hamšík and Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Speaking about the Inter game on Saturday, Pandev’s agent said the following, “Goran has a great desire to score against Inter.  The enthusiasm of the Napoli fans will be the most prominent weapon in the match against Inter.  Will Pandev score against his former team?  It would not be bad for Goran but not because of anger towards Inter.  Pandev has still not expressed his full potential for Napoli but I’m sure that a goal will get him going.  Cavani’s injury increases the chances of seeing Goran from the start but the manager has not ruled out the use of Santana or Lucarelli.”
