AC Milan’s Luca Antonini says Sunday’s derby with Inter is the biggest in years and could have a big impact on their season.

The 30-year-old defender grew up as a supporter of Milan and believes it is vital his side get three points on Sunday, after a less than impressive campaign to date.

“The derby is always an important game. But especially for us this time around. We are starting to improve our performances and are getting to the level we want to be at,” Antonini told Milan Channel.

He went on to speak passionately about playing in a contest of such importance and what the game means to him as a player and lifelong fan of the club.

“Milan and these colours are everything to me,” he said.

“I have always adored the club, when I was a fan, and even more now that I am a player.”

The Italian allayed any fears he could miss this weekend’s clash after it was revealed he only took part in half of Friday’s training session.

“I had a small twinge from the game against Zenit (St Petersburg), so I preferred to only do some of the session. It’s ok though, I’ll be fine,” he said.
