"Now I'm focused on playing well. I want to stay with this team and I'll show my worth"

APPIANO GENTILE - "The earliest memories I have are with a football. I can’t remember it any other way," stated Ricky Alvarez on this edition of "Prima Serata" on Inter Channel. Alvarez also spoke of his passions, family and friendships: "I have a brother and three sisters, and they often come to visit me. My family is everything to me. My favourite sport after football is tennis, and I love Federer. I’m happy in Italy. Milan is a city that has it all, and I’m really happy here. My closest friends on the team? Definitely the Argentines, but that’s natural. Actually, though, I have a good relationship with everyone. We have an excellent group and I feel really good here."

The discussion then focused on the future, and Alvarez responded: "I’m not thinking about my future, but rather on playing well now. Then we’ll see. I’d like to stay with this team. I’m happy here and get along with everyone. I know I still haven’t shown my full worth, also because I’ve suffered a couple injures that have held me back a bit. But I want this situation to change, and I want to do well here. When you come into a game that’s already underway it’s not easy to find your rhythm and confidence. Sometimes when you’re subbed on you want to do everything and don’t manage it. Consistency is important because you gain confidence, and confidence helps you to do things right. It’s not easy to get back to your old level when coming back from an injury. But I’m feeling fine now and with a bit of consistency I’ll feel even better."

The Argentine player was then asked how he felt during the January transfer window when hearing his name mentioned as a possible departing player: "I wanted to stay here, but in this sport you never know what will happen. I was giving my all in training to do well and stay. Now I really want to do everything I can to give my best."

At 21:00 the full interview with Alvarez will air on "Prima Serata". Stay tuned here at for more sneak previews
