Inter youngster Jacopo Gianelli has said he regrets not winning a trophy with the Primavera before going out on loan, according to a report in the Italian media.
Speaking during an interview with FCInternews the young midfielder who is now on his second loan spell with Serie C/A side Pro Sesto opened up about his career so far.
He played as part of a talented Inter Primavera side and says that he regrets not managing to win anything as part of that team.
“Apart from the first year where I lived with an injury, the others were really beautiful. I participated in the Viareggio tournament and in a Scudetto final with the Primavera, having excellent seasons which I cannot complain about.
“I have a bit of regret for not having won something with that shirt, but in the future you never know and I hope to try again.”
When asked if that was his only regret, he admitted that he also wishes he could have made his debut with the Inter first team as well.
“Raising a trophy with that jersey is everyone’s dream, although obviously I would have liked to have made my debut with the first team. It would have been the culmination of a dream that I have carried with me since I was a child. However, I can say that I enjoyed the experience, I enjoyed it very much.”
Jacopo Gianelli is currently recovering from the second serious injury of his career and he says it should not be long until he is back in the Pro Sesto team.
“I am much better, I am now in the last part of my rehabilitation and it should be a short time before I get back to the team. Given the condition it will take a while to be called up, but I have to say that I feel very well and feel energised.
“It wasn’t easy, I have to thank my family, friends and Pro Sesto for not letting me miss anything and being close to me from the first moment. They helped me deal with this negative event in the right way.”
Jacopo Gianelli also said that he has had contact with Inter whilst suffering from his injury. He has spoken to fellow youngsters as well as the club doctor.
“After the injury I had heard from some members of the Primavera, as well as the physiotherapists who still call me asking about my condition. I made the visits with Doctor Volpi, so the contacts remained and I am happy to have kept them.”
