thumbnail Hello,

Steaua Bucharest defender Mirel Radoi says he would rather stay at his current club than join Inter Milan and stay on the bench.

It seems that Romanian defender Mirel Radoi will not be joining Inter Milan after all. Coach Jose Mourinho allegedly hopes to have his injured defenders back before the start of the season, and Romanian FA president Dimitru Dragomir also disencouraged the player to try an adventure with the Nerazzurri, advising him to join another Italian club.

"Radoi is a player of great value, who could play in any team in the world," he said. "I would advise him to go to Fiorentina instead of Inter, because there he could become a first choice player. Radoi's price is 10 million euros."

Initially, the player had reportedly said he wanted a move to the Italian giants, but now it seems he has changed his mind.

Romanian TV channel GSP interviewed him about the possibility of a move to Inter, and he said: "I don't want to go to Inter to be a waiter. I'd rather stay at Steaua."

The 27-year-old has become a stalwart at Steaua Bucharest, making 175 appearences in eight seasons with the club. He is also the captain of the Romanian side.
