Eddy Salcedo: "My dream is to debut with first team this year. Honor for me to be here"
“I’ve been waiting for it and now it is finally here. I am very happy and excited for my new beginning.”
That was Eddy Salcedo expressing great enthusiasm after calling a call-up to the U-19 Italian national team for the first time.
“Everything is beautiful: the atmosphere, the way of working. There is a crazy intensity and a group of young people of great value, with important perspective,” he said to the Gazzetta dello Sport. “It is an honor to be here and I cannot wait for the debut.”
“Inter? It is a top club, one that is giving me great opportunity to continue my dream. At the beginning, I had to leave my family to face a new challenge on my own. I now understand the feeling when previous players explained to me how difficult it was to leave their city. Coming here, you immediately think about Ronaldo, Vieri, Milito and all the greats of that treble season. All trained here and so you realize how big this opportunity is. It is an honor to train with Icardi, Perisic and Brozovic.”
“He was behind me encouraging me to always give my best so that I can improve. During training exercises, I was often with Keita who plays in my position. He gave me important tips as well.”
Goal for this season?
“Winning the Scudetto with Primavera, the dream is to be able to debut with the first team, maybe at the San Siro.”
