Lazaro has given a long interview to the German newspaper Berliner Zeitung . The outside of Inter speaks of his difficult start to the season, of the good moment he is experiencing, of the importance of Conte and of the leap from the Bundesliga to the Serie A. Here are his statements
START – Valentino Lazaro talks about his difficult start to the season at Inter : « It was all new to me. A bigger club with even bigger ambitions, new companions, a different language. But everyone welcomed me well. I felt good at the start of the season, until a thigh injury complicated my preparation. It was annoying. I trained alone while the boys were in a group. It has been difficult. The team had a brilliant start to the season, won them all. The coach had no reason to change. Conte was very important to me at that time because he gave me courage and told me that I should wait for my chance. That would come soon ".
IMPORTANT – Lazaro then talks about his relationship with Antonio Conte : « He is the man who finally convinced me to come to Milan. He wanted to have me and made it clear in many phone calls in advance. Antonio Conte is a world-class coach. Not only has he won several titles, but his daily work is impressive. He works meticulously, puts great emphasis on tactics. Video analysis can take longer with him. It can improve the players and bring an entire team to a higher level ».
CHANGE – « The jump from the Bundesliga to the Serie A? It was a big change, of course. The ambitions here are very, very high. Inter is a world club. I think about who played and won here: Figo, Ronaldo, Zanetti . Inter has a great history. You can feel the myth ».
APPLAUSE AFTER INTER-VERONA – « Standing ovation at San Siro? A special moment for this hard work every day. It's nice to finally be able to play over the weekend. I was also allowed to play in the Champions League against Slavia Prague and Dortmund . They were great moments. On Instagram I saw many videos of fans getting up and celebrating. I'd be lying if I said I didn't like it . "
PRICE – « The 22 million euros paid by Inter? I think it's a great sign that a club like Inter has spent so much money on me. This makes me proud. This shouldn't interest me though. I am confident and I want to prove that I was rightly taken for this sum ".
OBJECTIVES – « If it is time for Inter to win a title? Inter wants to succeed, always! You can already see in the environment, in the city and among the fans that you can feel a sense of optimism. The club has invested heavily and changed a lot in the summer. Fans long for titles. Of course this is also a dream of every player. We are totally involved in every competition and we want to improve every day ».
