Icardi: "Massimo Moratti wanted me at here at all costs. Future? I see myself at Inter for a long time"
Speaking to Italpress, Mauro Icardi talks about the season thus far and also looks ahead to the future.
On the topic if Inter are being lucky, Icardi is certain that “Inter are not lucky. We had a good training camp and everything changed. Mister is very attentive and above all, we all have one common goal in mind: from management to the president to the very last person in this organization. We all know that we have to return to the Champions League. We are not thinking of the Scudetto. We only think of working every day to get better.
On the responsibility of being the captain of the team – “Being Inter captain, for me, is not difficult. I have personality to do it calmly and quietly. Being Inter captain is my mission and I am very proud of it.”
Icardi then looks back to the time when he made the very first big leap in career when he moved from Sampdoria to Inter.
“Massimo Moratti brought me to Inter from Sampdoria when I was only 19 years old. He was the one insisting to sign me. Then there was Piero Ausilio, he talked to my father and my representatives at the time. They were the two that made it happen.”
On the difficulties of last season – “Last year, when we came back from the international break in March, we were a bit ‘lost.’ At that time, I was angry, I went back home in a bad mood.”
On his future – “I see myself here. I hope to have a long career at Inter. I want to win something with this shirt. When I am 40 years old, I will not be involved in the world of football. I am not like Totti. I will not be a coach or a director. I don’t like being these roles. I think that I will be a full time dad, at home, with my family.”
