Alvaro Recoba interviewed with YouTuber Mario Inter and discussed his career. The interview was a variety of subjects, but it focused on his time with Inter Milan. The most interesting part to me was him discussing his choice to join Inter Milan over other clubs.

“Before arriving in Italy, I thought about all the other Uruguayans who had played there, above all Ruben Sosa, who was one of my idols. Six months before arriving at Inter I had done very well with Nacional, then my agent told me about two possibilities, Inter and Juventus.

I was a kid, I was only 20-years-old. When I arrived at Inter I found myself in a completely different world, my wife and I were two kids. I had a responsibility to the fans who all depend on you. You determine whether they are happy or sad on a Monday. I played with Ronaldo, Ibra, Baggio, Veron and Zanetti and I miss them. If I had been told that I would have had the career I did with Inter I would have never imagined it.”
