“To return to Inter? I don’t know, I can say that I’m an Inter fan and I’d like to return one day. I have a lot of time ahead of me, we’ll see. I have dreams like everyone. But I stay away from them, because many things aren’t true or at least I can’t control them.”
He was also asked about if he would want to return to Inter and he said that he would like to given he is an Inter fan but he knows that at 18 years old, there is plenty of time to think about that later.

“As a child I couldn’t realise, but now that I’m 18 these things cause me a strange feeling. I’m happy, because I see that my family is living as well as it deserves.
“Many people said that I left Inter for Zurich just for the money, but that’s not true: it was the right thing to do to play in the first team.”
