Calhanoglu: Inter Milan ready to return to Serie A leadership

Hakan Calhanoglu hopes to return to Inter Milan in good shape.

The midfielder will captain Turkey in tonight's friendly against Italy.

He said, “When I return to Italy I need to focus on my club and the league. As soon as I come back we'll play against Juve, Milan are leading the table but we're one game behind.

“I hope that, when I come back, we'll be able to take the lead thanks to victories.

“I am aware of the responsibility of captain, I hope to wear it with pride. Everyone should take responsibility, me above all because I have been wearing this shirt since 2015. The clock is ticking."
