Inter Milan signing Nicolò Barella tribute to Cagliari and fans

Nicolò Barella has paid tribute to Cagliari and their fans after completing his move to Inter Milan.

Barella says he leaves proud of his contribution.

He posted to social media: “I tried to work my socks off to help the team achieve their objectives. I gave everything on the pitch, every time, from the first to the last minute, in every game.

“I gave and received a fair few knocks, I discussed with referees and argued with opponents. I celebrated, shouted, cried. Playing for Cagliari is all at once a pleasure, an honour, a responsibility: something that makes victories sweeter and doubles the weight on your heart in defeat.

“Aside from the personal satisfactions, I always put the team first. It was the only thing that mattered. It is Cagliari. It is the shirt: I tried to honour it with all my strength, and I think that I achieved that.

“Now a new chapter in my career begins, I am ready to fight and give my all for these new colours and new fans. I will always keep my land and its people in my heart with great affection."
