Rami: 'Had problems with Inzaghi'

Adil Rami spills the beans on his time at Milan, clashes with Pippo Inzaghi and why he turned down Rafa Benitez’s Napoli.

The defender is currently in Russia with FK Sochi and spoke to Fabio Cannavaro in an Instagram Live chat.

“It’s not like the old days, when defenders could go in hard. Now we can’t touch Neymar, we can’t touch Cristiano Ronaldo,” shrugged the centre-back.

Rami moved to Serie A for Milan in January 2014, but was sold to Sevilla just 18 months later.

“When I was at Valencia, Benitez called and asked me to come to Napoli. I told him that I’d love to play in Italy, but only in the city of Milan.

“Therefore, I went to Milan and I really loved it, but had a problem with your friend Pippo Inzaghi. I don’t want to talk badly of him, but he made some criticisms that I did not like.”
