thousands of Inter fans who greeted him and his team-mates at the airport: "An unbelievable reception, we’re very pleased, thanks ever so much. The next few days in Indonesia are going to make for a wonderful experience, it’s the first time I’ve been to this country and it’s a real honour. Thank you for the warmth you’ve shown. It’s been a tough season but we hope to make our fans happy, at least over the next few days," smiled the captain. "And then we’ll focus on next year with fresh energy."
