APPIANO GENTILE - Exclusively to www.inter.it, here are the first words of Goran Pandev on Inter Channel:
Goran, welcome back to Inter. You arrived at this club when you were 17, and you didn't even know the language. You won with Inter's academy, you became a man and a great champion, and now you're back home.
"Thanks. I'm very happy. It has always been my dream to stay at Inter, but things have gone well all the same. I have grown, I have become a man and a true player, and today I'm happy to be here. I hope to start winning again, and winning a lot more with Inter."
It has been a wonderful start to the year for you. You have arrived at Inter and you got married. Compliments for this too.
"Yes, 2010 has started very well. Now we need to win, win the Scudetto and do well in the Champions League to make us all happy."
What does Pandev remember of his arrival at Inter at the age of seventeen?
"I was pleased to be here. I was very young, I didn't even speak your language, but it's completely different now. I have been in Italy for ten years, I have become a man and a player, thanks also to Lazio. Now I am here to show all my value."
Everyone is waiting to see Pandev on the pitch now. Are you ready?
"In these last few days I trained in Macedonia, while in the last two months I worked with Lazio. I'm at the service of the coach; he makes the decisions. I am ready and there are no problems."
So we are all waiting to see you on the pitch scoring loads of goals like you have always done...
"I hope to score a lot, but most of all, to win. It doesn't matter who scores the goals. It's important to give my contribution to the team. I have met my new team-mates and they are all great lads. Inter is a great team and a great group, this is why it's winning a lot."
There are some youngsters in the current team who are the same age as when Pandev first joined this club. They will ask you for advice...
"I will always be available for everyone."
