Julien Faubert and FC Inter aiming for the title

FC Inter midfielder Julien Faubert is probably the most internationally known player in the Veikkausliiga this season

FC Inter will start their season in Wednesday against RoPS at their Veritas Stadium and many of the fans will be looking at Julien Fauber as they cannot believe that a player with such a CV is playing in Finland. Faubert does not care about such questions but swears he is ready for his Veikkausliiga debut.

– There is some excitement in the air prior to the season opener, but we will definitely go for the home win. We have been training hard for 3 months and we are ready for a good start to the season, said Faubert after the training on Tuesday.

The Finnish spring weather can be harsh, but Faubert does not mind about the local conditions.

– I played 5 years in England so I am used to the cold, wind and rain. I also played in the Scottish league. The conditions are the same for both teams and as I understand the grass at the stadium is in good condition.

Faubert had some small injuries during the winter and he only managed to play 5 games during the FC Inter pre-season.

– I have had some small injuries, but nothing serious. I am ready to play and to give my  all, said Faubert.

Experienced Julien Faubert is still a player who wants to succeed and his goal now is to win the Veikkausliiga title.

– Even though many are still thinking the problems the team had last season, that is in the past now. We have a fresh beginning. There are no doubts that our aim is to win the title but in order to do that we need to get a good start to the season. Getting knocked out from the Finnish Cup was a big disappointment for us.
