French youth international Yann Karamoh told French media outlet Onze Mondial that his time will come as he revealed Inter Milan boss Luciano Spalletti has faith in his role with the Nerazzurri.

“For me, it was hard not to play at first,” Karamoh told the media outlet. “However, the directors and Mr. Spalletti spoke to me and asked me to be patient. I’d entered a strange spiral to say the least.”

Karamoh has made just 11 appearances for Inter, most notably scoring the winning goal against Bologna two months ago.

“They were honest with me. That’s right, they told me I was going to play. When? They did not specify it. Today, we can see that they really rely on me,” Karamoh said. “Even during the transfer window, they did not want to know anything. And that’s the way I talked to them.”

He added that things have not been easy since he started playing competitively in France. He called his adaptation to playing abroad “very complicated.”

“I tell you that because it’s been so hard for me. Maybe others will not agree, but me, I lived like that, so I give you my simple feeling,” Karamoh said. “From my point of view, training centers are a life experience for a kid.”

Karamoh said that since the transfer window and his signing for Inter, he reached a point “where I needed to be more dedicated, find myself again and spend more time with my family.”
