Ishak Belfodil admits it was “my fault” if he didn’t play regularly at Inter and reveals why he moved to Livorno.
The Algerian international striker has gone out on loan just six months after arriving at San Siro and had been on the verge of joining QPR, West Ham or Sassuolo, but opted for Livorno instead.
“At the start I wanted to try out an experience in England, then this Livorno opportunity came along and I didn’t let it get away from me,” said Belfodil at his presentation Press conference.
“Both Djamel Mesbah and Alfred Duncan had called me to say this was a good place to work and a well-prepared club.
“There was a lot of confusion on transfer deadline day, as I’d already had my medical with QPR. Once that deal fell through because of financial reasons, Italian clubs stepped forward and I chose Livorno.
“It was a good experience at Inter, even if I didn’t play very much. It’s a difficult season for the Nerazzurri, but it is my fault if I failed to find more space. I am not looking for excuses, as that is the only way to grow.
“Now I am at Livorno to give my contribution towards safety and we’ll do everything to achieve that.”
