Former Inter attacker Victor Obinna has reflected upon his three year spell at the Nerazzurri between 2008 and 2011.
“It was very exciting when I signed for Inter. As a child I dreamed of playing in Europe. Some of my compatriots like Taribo West, Nwankwo Kanu and Obafemi Martins had all worn the Inter shirt and it was a dream for me to follow in their footsteps as a child,” the 32-year-old, who is currently a free agent, said in an interview with FCInterNews.it.
He then shared his admiration for Jose Mourinho.
“Mou was the best coach I worked with. I learned a lot from him. From the first day he showed up in Appiano Gentile, we understood how he wanted to win. In fact, he really wanted to change the history of Inter and he succeeded in doing so by winning the Triplete.”
He then went on to share that he believes Inter lack leadership on the park.
“We were a complete team, in every department. Composed of young talents and players with great experience. Above all there were so many leaders, something that is perhaps missing now.
“Matches are not just won by the best players. A leader is someone who takes responsibility and helps his teammates out. Always. In my Inter there were a few players like that. There were players who could come off the bench and change games and this is missing from the current Inter side.”
He then reminisced about his only goal for the club.
“I only scored once for Inter but it was a great feeling. It was an unforgettable goal, scored against a very strong Roma side.”
He concluded by sharing his views on Antonio Conte and how Inter have got on this season.
“Conte can be the new Inter Mourinho. I appreciate his mentality, he never gives up. The team is doing well and doing what Conte wants from them.
“For sure, Inter and Napoli will compete with Juventus for the title. In order for Inter to reach the level of the Bianconeri they need more leaders among the starters and among those who do not play so much.”
