In an interview with Inter’s official club broadcaster Inter TV, third choice goalkeeper Tommaso Berni has given an insight into the life he has been living whilst stuck in quarantine with his family.
“I’m fine, we don’t complain. We are very busy because almost two months ago my little daughter was born. The days go by quickly but I do miss being in the locker room and my teammates,” he began the interview which was broadcast earlier on today.
“When you have been used to diving to the ground for more than twenty years, two months without doing it are difficult but I try to keep fit and try to be rigid in following the workouts we have been given.”
Next he revealed what he has been doing in his free time when he is not training at home.
“In the few free moments I get, I read and listen to music. Me and my family are in a bubble of love and despite this critical moment we are very happy.”
Berni proceeded to discuss how he is able to help out the younger players on Inter’s books.
“I am now in my sixth year at Inter. Passion is the first thing that drives me. It makes me train as if I were playing. With all the experience that I have, I can give advice and see situations in a different way than those who are younger than me.”
He concluded the interview by adding: “I will always thank Inter for the opportunity. Being the glue that keeps the team together comes naturally to me and I’m glad. I know I can help.”
Berni started his career in Inter’s youth academy and has also represented the likes of Ternana, Lazio, Salernitana during his career.
Berni has never made a competitive appearance for Inter in all his years with the club and has been an almost permanent feature on the substitutes bench. His contract is due to expire in a matter of months and some reports have suggested that Inter have offered him a coaching role.
