Stefano Sensi revealed his delight at signing for Inter in an exclusive interview with Gazzetta dello Sport this morning.

The midfielder has arrived from Sassuolo on loan with an option to buy and began preseason training with Antonio Conte on Monday.

Sensi was heavily linked with a move to Milan last month and admitted he too was surprised to ultimately join their city rivals.

“My agent called me one day to discuss the possibility of moving to Inter and I didn’t even let him finish explaining,” the 23-year-old said.

“It filled my heart with joy to hear Inter were interested. I’ve made the right decision coming here and these first few days have confirmed it.

“I’m starting a new phase of my life but it feels like I’ve been here forever.”

Sensi assured Inter had everything to win a trophy as early as this season and had words of praise for president Steven Zhang.

“I spoke to him when I signed my contract and his ideas really impressed me,” the midfielder continued.

“He told me we needed to work together to take Inter back where they deserve to be.”

The Italy international also shared his first impressions of Conte, recalling what Inter’s new boss had told the squad before training began on Sunday.

“He has a particular way of addressing his players and it has a great impact on you,” Sensi explained.

“He got the team together before training and said: ‘There’s no point in me talking to you for ages, just remember I base my work on two key concepts: education and respect’.”

Sensi said he could not wait to play alongside Marcelo Brozovic in midfield, before extending a warm welcome to his Italy team-mate Nicolò Barella.

“I thought Brozovic was a great player before arriving here and these first few training sessions have provided confirmation,” he concluded.

“Barella is very good as well though. I get on with him very well on international duty and I really hope he can join us here at Inter.”
