Inter Milan signing Brozovic: Frank Lampard my hero

Inter Milan signing Marcelo Brozovic admits Chelsea legend Frank Lampard is his role-model.

Brozovic joined Inter from Dinamo Zagreb this week.

"I've always wanted to play here," Brozovic told assembled media.

"It's a great team, with great history. I've never experienced such passionate fans, it's really something special.

"I'm happy to be here, and I hope I can justify the club's investment in me. I'm very young, and I hope to improve and become a complete player in a few years.

"I'm a midfielder, I can play defensive midfield or box-to-box depending on the formation. I really like Frank Lampard and I hope to be like him.

"I love English football, but the Italian League is very fast and technical. I prefer it.

"Milan? They were interested, but I didn't know much about it. I chose Inter because the conditions were good and there were a lot of players I knew. "[Mateo] Kovacic? He told me he'll always be nearby if I need any help."
