Sampdoria midfielder Andrea Pioli: Inter Milan behaviour just absurd

Sampdoria midfielder Andrea Poli slammed Inter Milan as "absurd" after failing to win a permanent move last season.

Poli proved Samp's matchwinner against Bologna yesterday and is being linked with Juventus.

He said: "Is there any truth in interest from Juventus? I don't know. As for my time at Inter, these were incredible moments. I felt like I was on Candid Camera.

"They told me that I was 100 per cent going to be signed on a permanent basis after the loan spell, but then they changed their minds and dealt with the matter in an absurd fashion.

"When you receive a call-up to pre-season training, you think that you're going to actually attend, but then something happened. I don't know what it was, as you'd have to ask them.

"There is not disappointment as such, but rather some people ought to learn respect for others. In any case, I am happy to be here playing for Sampdoria."
