MILAN - Proud and satisfied, these were two words to describe Eder Citadin Martins after he renewed his contract until 2021. "For me, this contract extension is an important show of faith from the club but also the coach and my teammates," said Eder. "I need to keep working, even if this is a time when I’m playing less, I always look to make my contribution for the team. I feel like I’m on the same level as my teammates who are playing at the moment, to stay at a club like Inter you need to show your quality not just in matches but in training every day. To extend my contract is a source of pride for me, I’m very proud to continue as a part of this club."
Eder was signed by Inter last year in January. "I arrived at a difficult time but the beauty of football is that things can change very quickly," he added. "This year, we’re showing what we’re worth, Spalletti has brought organisation and enthusiasm. With desire and the right attitude, we can do big things. This year, we have to take Inter back to where the club should be and that’s in the Champions League. We must reach this objective for ourselves and for the fans who have always been close to us. "
The forward was also asked what his best Nerazzurri goal was: "The free kick at Atalanta, but also the one at San Siro against Chievo."
