Icardi revels in ‘perfect Sunday’

Mauro Icardi feels a combination of scoring his 100th goal for Inter and them ‘playing like a great team’ against Sampdoria made it a ‘perfect Sunday’.

“It was a perfect Sunday because I scored my 100th goal with Inter and because we played like a great team,” he said from the Nerazzurri’s official store, reports Gazzetta dello Sport.

“As a striker, I must be in the right place at the right time to score goals for the team. Favourite goals? They’re all beautiful, scoring is a source of satisfaction for me.

“However, the ones I scored at Juventus and the hat-trick in the derby are those that made most of an impression on me.

“Perisic and Candreva are the teammates who have given me the most assists, but there are many teammates who have helped me while I’ve been here, and I thank them all for that.

“Now we must think about Verona and then the games after that. The players staying behind are preparing them in the best way.

“The fans are always great, they love Inter and us players. They’re the best thing about football.”
