Now at his new club after a frustrating season in Italy, the Uruguayan believes that the Colorado have everything in place to make a serious challenge for the Serie A titleInternacional forward Diego Forlan wants instant success with the Brazilian club, and has targeted the Brasileiro championship in 2012 as the perfect way to begin his career in Porto Alegre.
The Uruguay international, 33, moved to the Colorado from Inter at the start of July, signing a three-year deal with the club after failing to shine at San Siro.
He arrived in Brazil on Saturday, and could make his debut at the weekend when Inter, currently fourth in Serie A, take on Santos at Beira Rio.
Forlan's arrival has coincided with great expectations from the Colorado faithful, as well as an instant boost to the club's merchandising and membership sales. According to the 2010 World Cup golden boot winner, however, it is on-field success that most interests him.
"I was not expecting so much affection [from the fans], but it is a great motivation," the striker explained to Globoesporte on Wednesday.
"This is a club that works hard, they have a great desire to grow and have won a lot of titles in the last few years. The group wants to be Brasileirao champions, and we have everything to win it."
Forlan then outlined his eagerness to work with Inter stars Andres D'Alessandro and Leandro Damiao, while also highlighting young midfield talent Oscar as a player to watch.
"I have already played against D'Alessandro, he is a very technical player. I expect great things from the two of us playing together," he explained.
"I don't know Leandro Damiao as well, only on the television. But he is a quality athlete, just like Oscar."
Forlan played 22 games for Inter after moving from Atletico Madrid in 2011, scoring just twice.
