Inter midfielder Nicolo Barella has recalled the manner in which his teammates welcomed him upon his arrival at the club last summer.

The former Cagliari star played a decisive role in today’s 2-1 win at Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia, replacing Roberto Gagliardini in the 81st minute before providing the assist for Romelu Lukaku’s extra-time winner.

He joined the Nerazzurri in a deal worth up to €45 million in the summer of 2019 and has been a key figure in Antonio Conte’s side ever since.

“My teammates were all good at welcoming me in, they gave me a great hand,” Barella remarked in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN, which was broadcast earlier today.

“For me it was nice to come into a dressing room with great champions, I was immediately well received.

Barella was then asked some questions about his teammates starting with which player or players are the ones in control of the music that is playing in the dressing room: “Lautaro Martinez and Arturo Vidal.”

Barella then went on to slam the music choices of teammate Marcelo Brozovic.

“Brozovic [has the worst taste in music] because he listens to all the Croatian music that I have also learned by heart, but honestly it is not beautiful.”

He then spoke on which of his teammates is the rowdiest and which is the most precise and he responded: “Rowdiest? In a good and funny way, Alessandro Bastoni.

“The most precise? Samir Handanovic.”

In conclusion the former Cagliari player named the player with the best fashion sense and the player with the worst fashion sense in the team.

“Danilo D’Ambrosio and Brozovic.”

This season Barella, who is contracted to Inter until 2024, has made 24 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored one goal and provided seven assists for his teammates.
