Inter Winger Ricardo Quaresma 'Not Afraid' Of San Siro

The former Barcelona player suggests he is ready to perform for the Milanese giants...
Inter midfielder Ricardo Quaresma has hit out at accusations that he is too soft to play in Serie A and claims he is not afraid of suiting up under coach Jose Mourinho.

"To be afraid of the big stage is not something I am," he explained to the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"I will have no fears when I come back to play at the San Siro, because that is the home of Inter and I am an Inter player."

Meanwhile, Quaresma's poor performances have actually saved Inter €2 million. When he transferred from Porto, there were clauses in his contract stating that the Nerazzurri would have to pay bonuses to the Portuguese club if Quaresma made a certain amount of appearances or goals.

The midfielder did not meet that quota, after only featuring 13 times for the club before being sent on-loan to Chelsea last January.
