Inter’s Hernanes is convinced he has developed as a player since his arrival at San Siro in January.
The Brazilian made the move to the Nerazzurri from Lazio in the last transfer window and his performances since have earned him a place in Luis Felipe Scolari’s World Cup squad.
Speaking to ESPN Brazil today, the 28-year-old discussed the challenges he has had to face since making the move to Milan but insists he has relished every moment.
“Yes, I think I have grown without doubt,” Hernanes said. “I arrived in Milan with a very big responsibility.
“It is one thing to play at a place where you are loved by everyone and where you are perfectly comfortable, but it is another to arrive at a new club where you have to meet the high expectations of your new fans.
“Naturally, it is part of the growth of a player, and I have been very happy to face this challenge.”
