APPIANO GENTILE – "I've spent a lot of time talking to Diego, I phoned him late at night after the game and we had a long chat. Not only are we all with him but we're all waiting for him to return. I can't envisage Inter without him next season. I know how much everyone here cares about him, and how capable the people looking after him are. He'll have his operation today at about 14:30, he's in our thoughts. He's a fundamental part of Inter's future, of my future Inter and everyone's future Inter." Andrea Stramaccioni spoke loud and clear about the importance of his injured centre forward during today's press conference, underlining just how close the whole Nerazzurri family is to the Argentine.
