Perisic: 'Spalletti convinced me'

Ivan Perisic confirms Inter Coach Luciano Spalletti “was extremely important in convincing me to stay” despite Manchester United offers.

The Croatia international bagged a hat-trick in this afternoon’s 5-0 victory over Chievo, which sent the Nerazzurri to the top of the Serie A table.

“It’s not important who scores, but that the team gets the win. We must continue like this, as we waited a long time for this moment to come and now we want to win at Juventus,” Perisic told Mediaset Premium.

“Spalletti told us that every player is important and we got proof of that today, as even those who haven’t had as much space made their mark.

“Spalletti was extremely important in convincing me to stay.”
