During the international break, Inter captain Mauro Icardi took time out to speak about his desire to stay at Inter for years to come. Last summer was all about Icardi being linked with a move to Napoli or Arsenal, but the striker is now pledging his loyalty to the club.
“I’ve been asked this question many times…” Icardi said, answering fan’s questions on Inter Channel’s Facebook page.
“I am a fan of Inter, and the captain of this team. For this reason, I hope to have a long career with these colors.
“Yes, I would like to finish my career here. I expect a lot from the new Inter. We have the potential to do great things, and the club is doing everything to make this possible.
“We are ambitious and want to return to the top where we were until recently. During the transfer market the management will improve the team further by acquiring players with the right experience to help us succeed.
“Are we ready for the Champions League? That is the objective. I would like to play in that competition with this jersey.
“I am only 24 years old and can still improve and grow in many different ways. Playing inside the box is my strength; sometimes it is said that I am not a team player, but I have recently improved at giving assists.
“My best quality? Scoring. How many goals do I hope to score? I always try to score as much as possible, but it is difficult to give a precise number.
“Would it be better to win the scudetto or to surpass Higuain’s goal scoring record? Winning the Scudetto without question. Then it is obvious that by scoring more, it will make it easier to win the title.”
Icardi concluded by discussing Pioli:
“Pioli changed our mentality. With his arrival everything changed. He has the capability to manage every moment regardless of whether it is good or bad.
“He changed the way we express ourselves. Now everyone is happy.”
