Gargano: I am joining a great club

The Uruguay international has expressed his delight at having swapped Napoli for the Inter, while also thanking the supporters of his former side.

Walter Gargano has lavished praise on his new club after sealing his transfer from Napoli to Inter Milan on Tuesday night.

“I’m joining a great club," he told Sky Sport Italia. "They wanted me here and I’ll do my best to repay Inter’s faith in me.

“Am I afraid of the competition for a place in the team? No, I’m never scared.”

The midfielder still has to undergo his medical before joining his new teammates as they prepare for their Serie A opener away to Pescara this weekend.

Gargano joins the Nerazzurri on a 1.5 million euro loan deal with an option to make his stay permanent next summer for 5 million euros.

While expressing his delight at his move the Uruguay international paid tribute to Napoli and his time at the club.

“The Napoli fans will always remain in my heart,” he continued. “It was beautiful to play for Napoli, but I’m now starting a new adventure with Inter and I hope to do well.

“Our objective is to always aim for the top because this is a great side.”
