In an interview with Austrian broadcaster LaOla TV yesterday afternoon, former Inter player Marko Arnautovic has reminisced about his time with the Nerazzurri.

The Austrian national team attacker, who is currently on the books of Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG, spent the 2009/10 season on loan at Inter, the season the club won a historic treble.

“I will never be a person who claims to have won the Champions League or the Treble. I was at Inter, it was a good experience,” he began the interview.

The 31-year-old then went on to sing the praises of then Inter manager Jose Mourinho and revealed he still keeps in touch with Mourinho and his teammates from back then.

“It was certainly an exceptional experience for me as a young man. I learned a lot from Jose Mourinho and I brought a lot of these teachings with me. If we talk about studying football, then he is the best manager.

“We speak from time to time, he asks me how I’m doing. I’m still in touch with everyone from that team because we have a group chat on WhatsApp.”

Arnautovic made just three appearances across all competitions for Inter during his season long loan at the club, all of which came as a substitute. He also appeared once for Inter’s Primavera but never managed to make any goal contributions at either level.

After leaving Inter, he went on to represent Werder Bremen and then earned himself a move to then Premier League side Stoke City and also played for West Ham prior to his move to China this past Summer.
