Sampdoria winger Antonio Candreva has opened up about the differences between playing for his current club and playing for his former club Inter.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the 34-year-old explained that playing for Inter is its own reality.

Candreva made the switch to the Nerazzurri in the summer of 2016, having established a strong reputation while playing at Lazio.

The Italian picked up where he left off at the Bianconeri, becoming a reliable outlet in wide areas for the Nerazzurri under several different managers until leaving the club last summer.

The 34-year-old had still made appearances regularly under Antonio Conte, who appreciated his qualities in a wing-back role having also used him there with the Italian national team, but in the end departed just before the team went on to win the Scudetto.

Of the switch, he explained that “Last year I arrived here in post-COVID period, at the end of September, with the transfer window having been extended.”

“I came from a completely different reality,” he went on, “moreover with little preparation and once the season started. I had finished the season with the Europa League final, then only ten days of rest from there.”
