Skriniar: 'No reason to leave Inter'

Milan Skriniar assures he has ‘no reason to leave Inter’ and Antonio Conte ‘still wants me’ at the club, despite being dropped repeatedly.

The defender is reportedly on the transfer market after falling down the pecking order in the last few months of the season, as he struggled to get to grips with Conte’s three-man defensive tactics.

Nonetheless, Skriniar was named Slovakian Player of the Year for 2019 and finally received his award today after lockdown measures were eased.

“I was accustomed to playing every game, but the coach started to make changes, seeing as we were playing every three days,” said Skriniar.

“After achieving good results without conceding goals, the coach didn’t want to transform the XI until the Final of the Europa League. It was disappointing not to play, but the important thing was that the team did well.

“I still have a three-year contract with Inter. The club has never told me that I am not wanted, the coach still wants me there and I have no reason to leave Inter.

“There are 30 players in the squad, it’s only natural the coach has to make decisions and he does it for the good of the team.”
