Nagatomo on Inter Channel: "Number 55 because..."


The left-back spoke exclusively to Inter Channel after his inclusion in the squad for tomorrow's game in Bari

APPIANO GENTILE - After training with his new team-mates for the first time and being included in Leonardo's squad to face Bari tomorrow, Yuto Nagatomo gave an exclusive interview to Inter Channel.

Yuto, welcome to Inter. What does it feel like to be here?

"My team-mates have been really nice to me. And I'm in a fantastic place, here at Inter's training ground."

You've joined the most successful team of 2010 after winning the Asian Cup. A winner joining a team of winners...

"It's an honour for me to be here. I want to get on the pitch as soon as possible and make an important contribution to this team."

What can Yuto Nagamoto bring to Inter?

"My strengths are my speed and my ability to take players on. I want to use my skills to help the team."

Why did you choose the number 55 shirt?

"I've always worn number 5 but here that shirt is already taken by Dejan Stankovic so I asked if I could add a number and have 55."

How does it feel to be the first Japanese player to play for a team as big as Inter?

"I'm extremely honoured. I'm going to do everything I can to prove I'm good enough to play in this team."
