Former Inter midfielder Gaby Mudingayi has insisted he was unlucky with how things panned out for him at the club and is convinced things would have been different had he not gotten injured.

The former Belgian national team midfielder initially joined Inter on loan in 2012 and was then bought outright at the end of that season but he was bought out of his contract after just one season.

During his time with the club he managed to make just 17 appearances across all competitions due to a series of injury problems, including a serious Achilles tendon injury.

“I was unlucky. They really wanted me there, I arrived and signed a three year contract. I got an Achilles tendon injury and was out on the sidelines and big clubs are not waiting for you,” he explained in an interview with Italian news outlet

“I tried to recover immediately, but everything was now compromised. The experience at Inter helped me to understand that a job done well always pays off. I was committed and the team believed in me.”

He was then asked if he had any regrets over how things went for him at the Nerazzurri.

“Would things have went differently if it were not for injury? In my opinion, yes. We finished second in my first year with the club and we were also the first team to win at Juventus’ new stadium but then things changed, many players got injured and there were many other problems that were decisive.”

He concluded the interview by speaking on some of the players he got to share a dressing room with during his time at Inter and whether he is happy with the career he had.

“At Inter I practically played with the whole treble winning Inter time. I am happy with the career I have had and with whom I have crossed paths.”
