Ricardo Quaresma has promised to show his true ability with Inter after a hugely disappointing first term with the club.
The winger became the Nerazzurri’s second most expensive signing ever when they gave Porto €18.6 million and midfielder Pele for the Portuguese international star last summer.
But the 25-year-old flopped miserably in Milan and was loaned out to Premier League side Chelsea last January after becoming an easy target for the San Siro faithful.
The Blues decided not to make the move permanent and the Nerazzurri tried until the very last day of the summer transfer market to offload the trivela specialist, but he refused to depart Appiano Gentile and is now eager to prove his detractors wrong.
“I am working hard and want to do well here,” he told the Inter Channel after netting a goal in a 3-3 friendly draw with Swiss side Lugano.
“I don’t care about transfer rumours. The goal was beautiful and I feel I am reaching top form.
“My objective is to help the team achieve its targets.”
Inter will host newly-promoted outfit Parma next weekend, hoping to continue their good form following the impressive Derby della Madonnina thrashing of cross-city rivals Milan before the international break.
