Gabriel Batistuta has shared his regrets at being unable to do more during his spell at Inter as part of a column in today’s paper edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Batigol, as he is fondly remembered as for his goal scoring exploits, particularly at Fiorentina in the mid 1990s, joined Inter aged 34 on loan from Roma in 2003, just two years after playing a pivotal part in the Giallorossi winning the Serie A title in the 2000/01 season.
The Argentine made 12 appearances across all competitions for the Nerazzurri in which he managed to score two goals.
“I deserved to win the Scudetto at Roma as I scored 20 goals in 26 games. I would have stayed for longer at Roma, but I accepted Inter’s proposal,” he wrote.
“It was Massimo Moratti himself who convinced me to join them. There was a lot of respect among us and I am sorry I did not give him more.”
