Mauro Icardi insists that while last season “wasn’t easy” with Inter, he still managed to “play lots of games and score goals”.
Icardi went on self-imposed exile after being stripped of the Inter captaincy in February yet still ended the previous campaign with 17 goals in 37 appearances for the Nerazzurri.
“It’s true that last season wasn’t easy, even if I had the chance to play lots of games and score goals,” the Paris Saint-Germain striker told Hypebeast.
“My ambition is to continue to work hard and become one of the best centre-forwards in the world.
“I can do this by scoring as many goals as possible and working hard to reach my objectives.”
Wanda Nara has made much of being away from her husband, so how does he look at it?
“Difficult? No. But we’re a big family with five children. The change is more complicated for them.
“They’re still at school in Milan and they join me here when there are holidays.
“When I have free time I go to Milan to see them, but we’re all good. We still have our house in Milan.”
The Argentine was constantly under the spotlight in Serie A and remains so in his homeland...
“I am a person that doesn’t suffer much from pressure. I suffered it a lot in Argentina and Italy.
“It is something that constantly follows me. That’s football and the price to pay for being a famous person. But I’m calm.”
Icardi has taken to life at PSG quickly, scoring seven goals in his first eight games.
