Sassuolo Forward Giacomo Raspadori: “I Was An Inter Fan As A Child But Now I’m A Sympathizer”

Sassuolo forward Giacomo Raspadori has sympathies towards Inter, although he is not an outright fan of the Nerazzurri.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, Raspadori explained that he was a childhood fan of the Nerazzurri, but that now his only priority is Sassuolo.

Raspadori has been linked with a move to Inter for some time, and a switch to the Nerazzurri could fulfill something of a childhood ambition for the 22-year-old.

The Neroverdi forward admitted that when he was young he rooted for Inter, and gave an explanation for what initially led him to deciding to support the Nerazzurri.

However, as it stands the young forward’s real passion is for his current club Sassuolo, and he is working to try and make a name for himself by helping the Emilain club to success rather than dreaming of a move to another Italian club.

Regarding Inter, he said that “I’m a sympathizer, it was more of a thing to go against my brother, who is an AC Milan fan.”

“I’m no longer a fan,” he added, “but a sympathizer towards Inter. When passion and work come together, the support disappears, now my passion is for Sassuolo. I wasn’t rooting for Milan or even for Inter.”

Of his team’s final match of the season, against AC Milan, Raspadori said that “The match against Milan was tough, we wanted it to end differently, we put everything into it but they deserved the Scudetto.”
