Former Inter defender Jonathan Moreira has said that he had the wrong attitude when he was with the Nerazzurri, according to a report in the American media yesterday.
Speaking during an interview with ESPN, via L’Interista, Jonathan Moreira looked back on his time at Inter and admitted that there was no one to blame apart from himself when it came to his attitude and application when he was an Inter player.
“I feel like I have failed. There was no one else to blame. I was wrong in my attitude and in the way I viewed a great club like Inter Milan. When I woke up it was already too late, but there would have been time to recover if I hadn’t suffered the serious injury.”
Jonathan Moreira played for Inter between 2011 and 2015 and he made 49 appearances for the club. For one of his seasons at the club he was on loan at Parma. After his time in Italy came to an end he joined Fluminense in his native Brazil.
He also talked about some of the great players that he had the pleasure of working alongside at Inter and mentioned that his good salary is what went to his head.
“Then there was Lúcio, Maicon, Júlio César, and Thiago Motta, who didn’t miss a pass. I realised the dream of playing in a great team, I competed in the Champions League and I got a good salary. But that messed my head up a bit and I didn’t have much discipline at the time.”
