Napoli attacker Matteo Politano has stated that he felt he was not treated very well during his time at Inter and is taking his revenge on the Nerazzurri club at the Partenopei.
“I try to always be ready, I also have to give thanks to the coach who gives me confidence,” Politano explained to the media following Napoli’s 1-0 win away to Real Sociedad in the Europa League last night, as quoted by Italian news outlet PassioneInter.com.
He continued: “When I arrived I had to settle in, I was coming from a bad period at Inter where I was not treated very well. I’m taking my revenge.”
Politano joined Inter in a loan with option to buy deal from Sassuolo in the Summer of 2018 and Inter signed him outright last Summer but after failing to perform under new manager Antonio Conte, he completed a move to Napoli in the most recent January transfer window on a loan with obligation to buy basis.
In his 18 months at Inter, the three time Italian national team representative, made 63 appearances across all competitions. In his time on the park, the former Roma academy player scored six goals and provided as many assists for his teammates.
