Hakan Calhanglu surprised the football world in an interview with Turkish media. One of the first topics was going to Inter from the ranks of the city rival AC Milan "It was difficult to leave one and go to another club from the same city, but I worked hard on myself and I knew it was my chance to join the then reigning champion of Italy," said this great Turk.
He seems to have had more support at Inter. "When my new team did not win the Scudetto, and the previous one did, people acted as if I was to blame for such an outcome. I am very happy at Inter, noting that Nerazzurri fans were also helpful.
I spent four years in Milan and during that time no one sang to me from the stands. "Unlike that, I get a standing ovation at Inter during the warm-up." He is frustrated by the behavior of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who provoked Calhanoglu at the title celebration.
"He is 40 years old, not 18. It would never have occurred to me to do something like that at his age. Ibra just likes to be the center of attention. He did not contribute at all to winning the Scudetto for Milan. He barely played, but he will do everything to turn the public's focus towards himself.
Although they were great friends in Milan, things have changed now. "While we were teammates, he kept calling me, asking us to go to dinners or motorcycle races. He also wrote about me in his autobiography.
He had to write something, otherwise, there would be white pages in the press. I tell you honestly, he better not have bothered. " Inter lost the Serie A title, and Calhanoglu shocked everyone when he blamed Simone Inzaghi.
"Inter has a far stronger team than Milan. We lost the derby by replacing Ivan Perišić and me in the 75th minute. Until that moment, we had the advantage, and it ended 2: 1 in favor of Rossoneri, which means that the coach (Simone Inzagi, op.
Cit.) Contributed to the defeat and I told him directly. That is why we won Milan 3-0 in the semifinals of the Italian Cup ", concluded Calhanoglu. It will be interesting to see Inzaghi's reaction to Calhanoglo's words that he is the main culprit.
