Palacio: "I played in goal as a kid"

MILAN – It was an unusual night for Rodrigo Palacio as he went from making goals to saving them, following Luca Castellazzi’s injury 10 minutes from time: “I made a great save from Carrozza,” he bashfully told Inter Channel after the game. “We were leading 2-0 so we felt a bit comfortable but it was important to win the match. Why did I go in goal? Initially Chivu said that he’d do it, then Stramaccioni decided he wanted either me or Alvarez. Luckily it was only 15 minutes! Had I done it before? Yes, a few times as a kid. It’s always easier to play with Cassano because he’s a brilliant footballer, he looks up and plays the right ball. On Saturday it’s Genoa, it’ll be a special game for me, but now I’m an Inter player. It won’t be an easy match. What do I want from 2013? To win the league.”
