Ricardo Quaresma: I don't miss Italy
Former Inter Milan attacker Ricardo Quaresma has said he misses nothing about Italy or Italians and hopes to score for Porto against Napoli in the Europa League.
The Portugal international, spent a difficult two-year spell at the San Siro, making just 24 appearances between 2008 and 2010.
After being released by Al Ahli at the beginning of 2014 the 30-year-old has returned to Porto, where he won three league titles before moving to Italy, but he insists he has nothing to prove to the Italian public and is only focused on winning more silverware.
“I’m 30 years old and I have nothing more to prove,” Quaresma said to Gazzetta dello Sport. “Everyone by now knows what my qualities and strengths are.
“All I need to do is work to the best of my ability and give my all for my club. I have nothing to prove to Napoli or to Italians. I hope to score against them, how I do it doesn’t matter.
“Napoli have a great coach and a good team but we have a lot of good young talent.
“Would I go back to Italy? I don’t think so. I don’t miss anything about Italy or Italians and I’m not thinking about leaving Porto.”
