It’s a busy day for Inter, not only for the presentation of the new shirt at Solo Inter but also for the medicals of the new signings Dodo and M’Vila. The shirt was presented by none other than Mauro Icardi who was also interviewed by Sky:
“Every year the shirt becomes more beautiful and it has these colors that remind me of argentina and that I like a lot. It’s really nice. The Inter that is being born? This year we changed a lot, great players have left and we need to start over again with the coach. We will start over again with new players, I met M’vila today at the hospital where he made his controls. I hope that him and Dodo will be at appiano today.
The distance to the best teams? There is a lot of time until the season begins, we want to fight for the best that there is and at the end of the year we will see where we have arrived. If I’ll finish up on the mercato? I don’t handle these things, I do my job, I train and try to score for the team. Then if there are offers and talks between presidents I can’t really do much, I could just give my opinion. Though I’d like to wear the new shirt, I have four years left on my contract. I feel great in Milano and I don’t want to leave. Argentina in the semifinals? I don’t have any regrets, I finished the season and said that it was tough for me because of my physical problems which were determinant in bringing me to the world cup or note. Argentina has great strikers and as supporter I want them to reach the final. But I’ll speak like a supporter. It’s no surprise that Argentina are where they are, we all knew that we have a great team and now there are only four teams left, we know them but we are hopeful that the team can do the maximum.
A promise to the fans? No, last year I was asked the same thing and I didn’t play from the beginning. I think that I have done everything for the fans. The wedding makes me more responsible? Absolutely yes, earlier I had three responsibilities with the three kids, but now I don’t feel more mature. AMessi like Maradona? For me Maradona is the best of all times, there is nobody like Messi during these last ten years and this world cup he has proven what player he is. Four man defense? I don’t know anything about tactical changes, in these two days we haven’t even seen the ball. Though now at Pinzolo we will start seeing what the coach wants and how he wants to play. Atletico or Monaco for me? The president and the club will decide, I don’t have anything to do with it. If an offer comes they will talk with my agent and then he will tell me. Though I don’t think about the mercato now, I want to keep calm and think about Inter that is a great team. The Argentinian songs against the Brazilians? Yes, even at home the kids sing this song.”
