Inter Milan president Erick Thohir is proud of their deal for Hernanes.

The midfielder arrived last month from Lazio.

"I believe the addition of Hernanes has been crucial," Thohir told Gazzetta dello Sport. "I'm delighted with the win last weekend.

"The lad has the ability to spread the game, but also find tight spaces in the middle of the park.

"He's a player who can play with both feet and can certainly be the difference for us going forward."
