I must prove myself at Inter again – Biabiany

The winger is recovering from his heart issues and is confident of getting back to his best after eight months out of action

Jonathan Biabiany has admitted that the pressure is on him as he returns to Inter.

The winger emerged through the Nerazzurri youth system and started his professional career at San Siro before going on loan to the likes of Chievo, Modena and Parma, who bought half of his rights.

The France Under-21 international then returned to the Milan club in 2010, but he was then sold to Sampdoria and Parma, before returning to his formative club again this summer.

And the 27-year-old admits that he is happy to be back, insisting he is now “home”.

“I really wanted to come here. The club offered me all their support,” he said at his unveiling. “This is my home and they have treated me as such.

“I’m here to prove myself all over again alongside top-class players. It’s a challenge on two fronts for me.

“I’m back here after nine years and I hope we have a great season ahead of us. There was already a strong squad in place and now it’s even stronger. We’re aiming to win as much as possible this year and I want to play my part in it.

“Everything’s changed from when I last played here but I think we can do really well.”

Biabiany came close to joining AC Milan in September 2014 but the move fell through when he was diagnosed with cardiac dysrhythmia. He has been out of action since but is confident of getting back to his best.

“I was looking for a new professional challenge and I had agreed to join Milan. They are the ones who discovered my heart problems,” he explained.

“I was sidelined for eight months but ever since my first day back in training my only thought has been to get back to 100 per cent and climb as high as possible in the league.”
