Speaking in an interview with Torcedores.com, Guilherme Siqueira has revealed how he found himself joining Inter’s academy back in 2004.

“I was in the youth teams of Figueirense, dreaming of getting in the first team but during an interstate tournament, I was watched by Mino Raiola, he was the one who took me to the Nerazzurri,” the Brazilian full-back, who recently announced his retirement aged just 32, said.

“Italian football is more tactical than Spanish, which is a bit more technical. I had always wanted to play in Spain, and at Granada, is where things started to take-off. Thank God I was able to always do my best and have the wisdom to make good choices throughout my career.

“Today I look back and I am proud of what I did in my career. It was not easy, but I can say I managed to win in this very competitive and treacherous market that is football.”

Siqeuira spent two years in the Nerazzurri youth thanks before moving on to Lazio’s before making his professional bow at Udinese. He would then go on to represent the likes of Benfica and Atletico Madrid in his 11 year professional career.
