Forlan explains Inter exit

Uruguayan international Diego Forlan says leaving Inter for Brazilian side Internacional was an easy decision to make.

The 33-year-old quit San Siro in 2012 only a year after joining the outfit from Spanish club Atletico Madrid. He scored just two goals in 20 matches for the Beneamata.

“Italy was a bad time for me,” the centre-forward told the BBC in an interview. “When I went there the team was struggling.

“I scored in my first game, a nice goal, and then got injured and was out for two and a half months. I came back and I was injured again.

“In the end I was being played out of position.

“Leaving Europe was not a difficult decision,” he continued. “I try not to have any regrets. Brazil is a very nice country, they play very good football and pay good money – it's not so different from Europe.”
