Inter winger Antonio Candreva answered a Q&A with fans on Twitter where he talked about the Nerazzurri, Azzurri and life off the pitch.

“It fills me with pride to wear this shirt,” the former Lazio man began.

“I’m at one of the biggest clubs in the world. I will give everything for these colours.”

Candreva was asked how he would rank his season so far, and talked about the new coach.

“I would give myself a six to myself and also the team. He [De Boer] tries to be as offensive as he can but we know we can still improve. I’ve been impressed with his mentality to the job and his way of working.”

The 29-year-old also commented on some of the Italian talent around, highlighting the following: “Pinamonti in the Inter squad and for the national team I would say Belotti and Donnarumma.”

On being Suning Group’s first major signing, and his partnership with Mauro Icardi, he explained:

“I’m proud to have been their first major investment. I hope I can help him [Icardi] more, he is very strong player and along with Klose, the best striker I have played with.”

On life after his career, he stated: “I don’t really know at this time, but I think I would like to go into coaching”

Finally, if he had not become a footballer: “I think I would have been an electrician, but can you imagine how many blackouts there would have been in Rome!”
