Tonny Vilhena: "Inter said they believed in my potential but then signed Banega... Not great sign of trust"
Tonight, Feyenoord will play against Napoli in the second matchday of the Champions League. Tonny Vilhena, very close to Inter in the past, looked back to the past and talked a bit about his unrealized move to Inter.
“I was already a Sampdoria player: four million euros, there was agreement between the clubs, everyone was satisfied. What missing was my signature. My mother was severely ill at the time and so I did not want to leave. President of Sampdoria insisted and told me that: ‘Tonny, let’s go to Genoa and sign a good contract.’ I still said no, like I did to Inter some time before. In that case, I was not convinced in their (Inter) plan which wanted to loan me out to other Serie A club. They said that they believed in my potential, but at the same time they signed Banega from Sevilla. Not really a great sign of trust.”
