Ricky Alvarez modelled the new home strip and spoke about Inter, once again declaring his love for the colours and his enthusiasm to get ready for the new season: "I like this new Inter and I'm pleased to be part of things here. Now let's hope for a constructive pre-season training camp. That's essential for a good start to the season."
The Argentine touched on various subjects and the reporters asked him if there had been any transfer bids put in for him: "I don't know. I'm just concentrating on getting my knee back into shape." Where does Alvarez prefer to play? Anywhere at all, it isn't important because all he wants to do is work for the good of the team: "I like playing in different positions. I'm ready and willing to be picked and I'll play wherever the coach wants me to. I don't worry about things like that. All I think about is the confidence I have in the team and in the coach."
He was also asked who he considered to be the team to beat next season, imagining it would be Juventus: "Are Juve the team to beat? They won the Scudetto, so obviously they are important. We want to start winning again, both the Scudetto and the Europa League." He went on to comment on last season: "It was an important season for me and, as it was my first experience of European football, it wasn't an easy one... Now I'm concentrating on improving even more." Finally the conversation with Alvarez turned to Andrea Stramaccioni: "I get on well with him. He's a coach who has done very well recently and has an incredible future ahead of him. Since he arrived here, he has won everybody over."
