Belfodil content with Inter start

21 July 2013 20:47

Ishak Belfodil has declared himself happy with his start to life at Inter following a close-season switch from Parma.

The 21-year-old completed a move to San Siro earlier this month, and is currently taking part in his first pre-season with the 18-time Serie A champions.

And, despite missing two penalties during a 3-0 friendly win over Trentino Team on Wednesday, Belfodil says he is delighted to have joined up with Inter.

"Unfortunately Ramadan coincided with pre-season training this year, but things are going well anyway and I am happy with my performance so far," he told Inter Channel.

"I missed two penalties in a friendly, but it’s better to miss them now than when it counts! I am very happy at Inter, which is a great club."

The Algeria-born frontman, who has represented France up to Under-20 level, also underlined his eagerness to continue improving - having played down comparisons with Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema.

"At the start I struggled to adapt to Serie A with Stefano Pioli at Bologna. I was fine with the ball at my feet, but didn’t know how to move off the ball, which in Serie A is more important than anywhere else," he added.

"I already started to learn at Bologna, then grew even more at Parma and now I want to give my best at Inter.

"In France I played mainly on instinct, but in Serie A you have to be more concentrated. Comparisons with Karim Benzema? They are pleasing, but I won’t get a big head."
