Andrea Ranocchia sees a new Inter career after Andrea Stramaccioni took charge. “I didn’t enjoy myself last year.”
The defender struggled with injury and poor form, losing his spot in the Italy squad for Euro 2012.
“Last year I didn’t enjoy myself at all,” he told Inter Channel.
“Whether it was in training or playing a game, there was always more tension than enjoyment. I didn’t experience it well, but I learned from those mistakes and this year started off with great hunger.
“I am enjoying myself and hope to feel this way for the whole year. I want to play as much as possible and continue along this path then, if the Italy call comes, it’ll be because I earned it.
“The fans have always been close to me and I can’t wait to repay them.”
