Agent of Inter Milan flop Gabigol: Icardi and Zanetti were jealous

The agent of Flamengo striker Gabriel Barbosa has slammed his former Inter Milan teammates.

Gabigol never made it at Inter, though returned to Brazil to sign for Fla, where he's since enjoyed great success.

“He arrived at Inter and they had a big party in a theatre," Ribeiro told Uol Esporte. “All in black ties.

“A much bigger party than the one made for Kaka. This caused jealousy on the part of Javier Zanetti, now the Vice-President of the club, and of Mauro Icardi.

“The two Argentines were jealous of him. He went to Portugal and didn't explode. He returned to Santos and was the top goalscorer, something he repeated at Flamengo."
