It was the type of comment that will have Inter Milan fans dreaming of better times to come.
The second coming of Roberto Mancini at Inter has been a major disappointment, but there is hope on the horizon for the nerazzurri faithful as Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone says he expects to take charge of Inter in the future.
Simeone has built an impressive resume in his four years at the Vicente Calderon, success that has caused him to be linked with a move to one of Europe’s big sides.
While Simeone is in no hurry to call time on his spell in Spain he admits he is tempted by the prospect of a return to San Siro, where he won the UEFA Cup in 1998 as a player.
“During my career I expect to go to many places, whether it is now or in the future,” he toldSport Mediaset. “Not right now, because I am happy here, but there will be an opportunity to return to Milan.
“It is not a dream. It is a situation I have imagined, just like how I imagined that I would return to Atletico.”
The 45-year-old signed a new deal with Atleti last year, which expires in 2020. So Inter fans might have a wait on their hands before Simeone arrives in Italy.
What do you think Inter fans. Would you like to see Simeone manage Inter?
