Melo: "My heart is black and blue. De Boer does not speak Italian and Thohir was never here"
“I could never talk badly about Juventus but Inter are something else, I have their colors in my heart.”
That was Felipe Melo in an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport with the anticipation of the Italian derby tomorrow.
“My first season at Inter was positive, that derby victory is unforgettable. Mancini’s farewell had a big impact on us. With him, we would have surely secured the Champions League spot. But there was confusion within the club (referring to Thohir)…
“In Turin, Inter have to play like a big team and league leaders like they are, undefeated with a lot of certainties at hands. Spalletti has everything to fight for the Scudetto. Icardi? He is having a fantastic season and most importantly, he has the fans behind him. He is truly an Interista and is always decisive.”
On De Boer and Thohir – “You cannot pick a coach that does not speak the language and the second year at Inter started very badly because of this reason. Thohir was never there. Sometimes, he was at Inter, sometimes at D.C. United. Too much confusion. Mancini and Ausilio were not at all at fault. Today, we have a serious project with Suning. Then there is also Zanetti as a guide, a legend.”
