Hernanes: Not about money

Hernanes has explained further that his motivations to move from Lazio to Inter are not based on ‘money or fame’.

The Brazilian posted on his official Facebook page a note this morning explaining his reasoning behind considering a move to the Nerazzurri, which looks increasingly close to completion.

On from this, the 28-year-old has further clarified his current mindset and thanked the Aquile for the three-and-a-half years together.

“I am a little emotional, yesterday was not an easy day. I did not sleep at all last night. The fans have loved me beyond belief,” began a still emotional Hernanes on Lazio Style Radio today.

“Those on Facebook were my true words. Since I was a child I have wanted to do something special. When I came here, I wanted to win the Scudetto with Lazio, I have given everything to achieve this goal even though it was not easy.

“The Coppa Italia was really special, I realise that perhaps that was the ultimate goal I could achieve. My choice has nothing to do with money or fame, as a I child I always had the ball at my feet. I want to do something important, this is the reasoning for my choice.

“I take this opportunity to thank [the President, Claudio Lotito], with me he has always been fair, and the club itself, where I have always been good.

“I thank the Coach, my teammates, I have made many friends. Thank you to the fans, I will always carry them in my heart.

“I have received more than 2,000 messages, I have responded to only a few, I knew that they loved me, but I did not think this far. I have no words to describe how I feel.”
