Antonio Conte wanted Alessio to follow him to Inter.
“He told me I was crazy not to go but after eight years together the moment had arrived where you want more," he said.
“You want a new challenge and for that reason I told him of my desire to be my own manager."
He added: "I spoke with a friend, Paolo Vanoli, who played in Scotland. He explained to me what type of football I would find here, but the Scottish Premiership is changing. Over the last five years I think it has improved.
“Of course, I have my own methods and some things will change. It may be more attacking. The most important thing is that every single player has to know my ideas and what they do on the pitch."
