Adriano about Inter

“Balotelli will be a great player if he puts his head in place,” Adriano told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I rarely follow the reports that come from Italy… but with Thiago Motta and hopefully Felipe Melo, Inter can have a great season.

“On top of winning the Scudetto, Inter are also in a position to focus on the Champions League.

“Last season, we lacked a little experience. We played well in the game against the English, but then we were a little nervous in the second leg and Manchester United showed themselves to be superior.”

“Of all the trainers I have had up until now, Jose Mourinho was the best. I learnt a lot from him and I have not forgotten that already in 2008 he was against my sale,” Adriano concluded.

Parma sign Biabiany

Parma President Tommaso Ghirardi has announced the signing of versatile Inter youngster Jonathan Biabiany.

Our 21-year-old Frenchman, who can play in midfield and attack, has been with Inter since 2006.

He spent last season on loan with Modena and scored three goals in 18 appearances.

Biabiany certainly suits the model Parma are trying to implement.

The Gialloblu want a young and enthusiastic team for next season.

Parma have already extended the part-ownership arrangement they have with Milan for 19-year-old striker Alberto Paloschi.

They were also linked with Roberto Acquafresca until he decided to join Atalanta.

Arna very close

Marko Arnautovic confirmed that he is looking foward to play for Inter:

“Mourinho called me. Twente know that I only want to go to Inter.”

“Zlatan is my idol, but let’s make no comparisons because I still have a lot to learn.

“Inter are a dream,” he concluded.

Today, he maded medical exam, and last reports told us that he did well.

Two youngerest in Italy national squad

David Santon, our young left back told the press that Mario Balotelli will also be called to Italian first national team.

“It was a nice experience, I was with some great champions,” said the Inter player on his return to Italy, “but I was a bit unlucky because I should have played the third match and I hurt my knee in training.”

We didn’t do our best in this tournament and we come home a bit disappointed but it’s important to do well next year. There are many youngsters who can play at high levels. It’s important to give them a chance and I hope they get more and more.”

“I think Mario was ready for this call-up too, but perhaps he has had the wrong attitude at times,” said Santon. “But I think he’s a great champion, he will certainly change and we will see him in the national team very soon.”
