Icardi: I can only wish the best for Inter in all competitions


Still an Inter player, Mauro Icardi is settling in at Paris Saint-Germain with one of the weirdest summers a top player endured. The Argentinian was ostracized from the squads for previous sins, sued the club, and then extended his contract before moving on loan to PSG in the dying days of the summer transfer window. Still, there is no bitterness towards Inter from his side.

It seems that the prolific goalscorer hasn't given up on his career in a blue and black shirt.

"If PSG were to face Inter, I’d live it in the best way. If it was up to me, I’d go out as a professional and give my best to defend my new shirt. I’m at PSG this season and my objective is to give my best for this shirt. Then, at the end of the season, around May or June time, we’ll see what happens. It’s still too early to say anything. I can only wish the best for Inter in every competition. I still have many friends in Milan. With Conte, it can be a good year for the Scudetto," said Icardi.

While Neymar is struggling in front of the PSG fans, Icardi has been a welcomed sight in the capital of France, despite his reputation.

"I didn’t expect so much support from the fans. They welcomed me right from my first warm-up at Parc des Princes. I then had the good fortune of playing right away against Real Madrid, before picking up a slight injury. I’m fine now, I’ve got going again, even if I have to keep working because I had a complicated summer and I wasn’t 100 per cent when I arrived in Paris."

His replacement at Inter, Romelu Lukaku hasn't been playing badly since arriving at Guiseppe Meazza and Icardi shares that view, believing he will be a major success.

"I don’t think Lukaku is experiencing any problems. Indeed, I think he started well, scoring a couple of goals right away. He then got injured like me and maybe that brought about the usual criticism, but it’s not easy for anyone to play in Italy. He’ll settle in and score so many goals," said the controversial Argentinian.
