Making the transfer from Lazio to Inter on the final day of the summer transfer market, the fan favourite changed living in Rome to a life in Milano.

Having signed a one-year loan deal, with the right for Moratti to purchase the player permanently at a fixed price, Mauri Zarate scored his first goal in the Inter shirt in the Champions League game against CSKA Moscow. The player had quickly become a favourite also for the Inter supporters, as his style of football is one that can be a joy to watch.

Speaking to Inter Channel, Zarate stated: “I had a good first year with Lazio, while the second was worse. Last year we had a great season, and I feel I have matured and am now hoping to have a great season here with Inter. I like it here in Milano. Rome is a beautiful city, but Milan is more quiet and organised and I appreciate that. I would be happy to stay, of course.  I hope I will remain here.“

Lastly, a smiling reporter asked Zarate how many times he has been told to pass the ball more often, and the lively attacker blushed while answering “I have to admit...too many times”.
