Fiorentina midfielder Alfred Duncan has credited former club Inter Milan for playing a significant role in his development as a footballer.
The Ghana international revealed the Nerazurri's helped him gain the necessary experience and grow in the sport when he arrived as a teenager from West Africa.
“Inter was something unexpected but beautiful, a very important club, at the top in Italy and Europe, I was able to train with formidable players, an experience that gave me and allowed me to grow a lot,” he told Calciomercato.com.
The 27-year old also revealed learning from idols Xabi Alonso, Thiago Motta and his favourite Guti.
“Before I arrived in Italy, I used to watch Xabi Alonso, but Guti was the player I liked the most given his incredible quality with his feet. When I arrived in Italy, I had the opportunity to train with Thiago Motta who played exemplary football in his role.”
Duncan started his career with the Inter Milan youth set up before moving on to play Livorno. He later joined Sampdoria before moving to Sassuolo and now Fiorentina.
