Juan Jesus: London Olympics convinced Inter Milan coaches

Inter Milan defender Juan Jesus admits international football won him his move to Italy.

Juan suspects that he wouldn't still be at Inter had he not shined for Brazil at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

"The Olympics helped Inter to note what I could do," the 21-year-old defender told Sky Sport Italia on Wednesday.

"They looked at me differently after that competition, they took more notice of my qualities. Now I just need to keep improving."
