Tottenham Hotspur and former Inter wingback Ivan Perisic feels that the Nerazzurri still holds a big place in his heart.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews, the Croat spoke of Inter and Italy still being home to him despite the fact that he left during the summer.

Perisic spent a total of seven years at Inter, with the season spent on loan with Bayern Munich being the only time that he was not a first-team regular between the years of 2015 and 2022.

The 33-year-old decided to try a new adventure in the Premier League this summer, joining former Nerazzurri coach Antonio Conte at Tottenham.

However, during his time at Inter, the former Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund player formed a strong bond with the club, including winning the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia, and the Supercoppa Italiana in his final couple of seasons at the club.

“I do miss it sometimes,” Perisic said, “Inter and Italy will always be my home.”

“Milan is the place that I’ve stayed the longest in my footballing life,” he noted.
