Current Atletico Madrid midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia believes that when he was playing for Inter the club was still developing to where it is today.

Speaking to Spanish news outlet Marca, the 28-year-old reflected on his time with the Nerazzurri, in which the club still looked to be a ways from where they are today.

Kondogbia joined Inter from Monaco in the summer of 2015, spending two seasons at the club in which they failed to reach the Champions League despite flashes of potential from both the player and the club.

In the end, Kondogbia departed from the Giuseppe Meazza to join Valencia in the summer of 2017, going on to establish a strong reputation for himself in La Liga while the Nerazzurri would also build a new phase of success culminating with the Scudetto of last season.

Kondogbia now plays for Spanish champions Atletico Madrid and has certainly experienced success of his own, but in hindsight neither he nor Inter were quite ready for that level of success while he was at the club.

“It was an Inter in a buildup phase,” was how he characterized the club during his time there. “Many years without getting into the Champions League and many changes.”

He explained, “The first year we finished fourth but the fourth did not get us to the Champions League. The second year there were many changes in the squad, a change of coach, and the arrival of the new owner. Since then they have started to improve little by little.”
