“I didn’t want to return to Portugal: going home, to the club where I grew up in, where I know everything, in my comfort zone… for me, that was not exciting.”

In an exclusive interview with O Jogo, Joao Mario explains the choice of saying yes to Lokomotiv Moscow and the Russian League, instead of moving back home after many years spent at Sporting Lisbon.

The midfielder also talks about how things did not go as planned at Inter.

“It’s hard to talk about it now. Every time I said it, I was misunderstood, I try not to think about it too much: there are simply things that are not meant to be together. I am happy to see a strong Inter, I will miss my teammates and I wish them the best of luck this season. The coach there is very good, very competent, Inter will be great again.”
