Inter Milan outcast Gabriel Barbosa has dismissed rumours that he is unsettled and unhappy at the San Siro.
The Brazilian joined Inter in the summer but has failed to break into Inter’s first-team.
It has been widely speculated that Gabigol will be moving on in January, but the former Santos star said that he is happy at Inter and is looking to adapt to the Italian game.
“I’ve only been here for three months, so it has taken time to adapt to the city and the team,” he said.
“I am very happy at Inter. Obviously I hope to play more, but I am happy and realise it will take some patience. I train every day to improve and every day I feel more settled.”
“Plan A is to stay at Inter and make my mark here the way I did at Santos.”
Gabigol also rubbished claims that his style of play was not suited in Italian footbal.
He added: “I think a lot of people are talking rubbish. It’s a different style of football with great players. I arrived in Italy very young, there are very experienced players here who have been in Serie A for a long time.”
“I’m learning a lot and think it’s just a matter of time. No player arrived and immediately went into the starting XI.”
“Italian football is very different. There are great players here, but nobody with the same style of football as me. Italians usually don’t start deep and run forward, for example. I have to get used to it.”
