Former Sampdoria midfielder Angelo Palombo has admitted that he did not want to be at Inter during the half-season loan which he spent with the Nerazzurri in 2012.

Speaking to Genoa-based newspaper Il Secolo XIX, the 40-year-old explained that he was always committed solely to Sampdoria, and that he hadn’t really wanted to make the switch to the Nerazzurri.

Palombo spent by far the bulk of his playing career with Sampdoria, joining the Blucerchiati from Fiorentina in 2002 and only leaving the club for good when he retired in the summer of 2017.

However, the midfielder did have one brief spell away from the Ligurians, joining Inter during the second half of the 2011-12 campaign, on a loan deal with a permanent option, whilst his club were in Serie B.

However, the Nerazzurri did not make the deal a permanent one, and Palombo returned to Sampdoria where he played out the rest of his career in the Italian top flight.

“There were those four months at Inter, but I didn’t want those,” he said. “I could have left a hundred times but I stuck to Sampdoria because I fell in love with the shirt and with the city, and I would never have wanted to leave.”
