has talked about his plans for the future, insisting that he wants to stay at the club, and says that
departure after winning the Serie A title surprised him.
The Slovakia international, who was an important part of Inter’s title-winning squad and insists that he wants to defend the title with the team, is going to represent his country in the Euro 2020.
“It was a long journey and we experienced wonderful emotions, as Inter won the trophy after 11 years,”
Skriniar told Futbal Pravda
“The early Champions League exit was a heavy blow, but paradoxically it united us even more. We started a long run of Serie A victories, managing to beat Milan, Juventus and Atalanta.
“The coach gradually instilled his vision of football into us, until we knew exactly where to be on the pitch. He first and foremost influenced us with his winning mentality and we players gave him everything to reach a result. Luciano Spalletti had already done well for Inter and Conte added something extra.
“The fact he left was surprising to me, but also to the teammates I spoke to. I only found out after I’d returned to Slovakia, and I still don’t know the reasons why.”
Conte parted ways with Inter after the club decided to change their plans and spend less money and even sell some players, but Skriniar insists that he is not going to leave the club and that he is happy with the team.
“I am not even considering this problem now. I want to stay at Inter and defend the Scudetto with the Nerazzurri colors. I am not distracted by transfer gossip.
“The victory with Inter gave me energy. I won’t lie, a few days of vacation would’ve been nice, but it is not possible right now. I can’t wait for the Euros to begin and hope we can put in good performances.”
