Inter forward Eder has spoken of his pride at being given the chance to play for the Nerazzurri, claiming that he had “no doubts” when receiving his offer from the club.
The Italian-Brazilian signed from Sampdoria in January 2016 in a deal worth approximately €12 million and has enjoyed mixed fortunes in Milan since then, making 86 appearances in all competitions and scoring 14 goals.
However the player reiterated in an interview on Brazilian radio on Wednesday that he was honoured to have been asked to play for Inter, as well as showing no regrets about his decision to play for the Italian national team.
“I had some wonderful years at Sampdoria,” the 31 year-old 4oito, “but after receiving several offers from clubs outside Italy I had no doubts in accepting Inter’s offer. They’re a great club with everything they represent.
“Playing for the Italian national team? I couldn’t say no [when offered the chance to switch his nationality to play for the Azzurri, instead of home nation Brazil] after all the time I’d spent in Italy, for the way I had adapted. They were four-time world champions, as well.”
