The Turkey international believes the Rossoneri supporters want to take pictures with him when they see him and reveals that Milan Skriniar has really impressed him.

Hakan Calhanoglu

made a move to Inter from Milan over the summer after a four-year spell with the Rossoneri.

During an interview with

Il Corriere dello Sport

, the Turkish talked about Milan fans’ reaction when they meet him.

I have met many because I often go to eat with my family at the restaurant,”

  the 27-year-old said.

“They ask me for photos and say that they love me. I had no problems with anyone at Milan and I am still in contact with my former teammates.”

Milan and Inter will lock horns on November 11 and February 6. He was asked whether he would celebrate should he meet the back of the net against his former club.

If it happens, I’ll do as usual,”

the creative midfielder replied.

I spent four good years at Milan, I have many friends there. There had been tough times too, but the last two seasons were better than the first two,”

he continued.

“Inter are a great team. They won the Scudetto and several derbies during my time at Milan. I came here because I like new challenges.

“I wasn’t surprised when they [Inter] called me. With my qualities, I know what I can give to the team, I never thought I could remain without a club.”

Inter sent Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi away after securing Calhanoglu’s services. He was quizzed about whether joining Inter was a mistake.

“No, never. It’s normal that it’s complicated to keep the best players who have important offers in a challenging economic moment.

“The club’s good comes before anything else. I am always focused on my work, I knew I had joined a big club.”

The Nerazzurri are sitting second, with Napoli leading the Serie A table as they started the season on the right foot, winning five games out of five.

Many clubs can fight for the title,”

said Calhanoglu.

“Roma and Napoli had a great start, Atalanta are there. We are the favourites after last year’s victory.

“Napoli have quality. Juventus? I prefer to talk about us, everybody respect them and it’s normal to have highs and lows during a season, you never know what can happen over the next few months.”

Calhanoglu also talked about a teammate that really impressed him.

“There are many top players, so I should mention each one of them. However, if I have to pick one, I say Milan Skriniar. A great person, a great defender with a great character.”
