Atlético Mineiro striker Jô holds no grudge ahead of return to InternacionalJô celebrates with friend and former Internacional teammate Kléber
Former Manchester City striker Jô has revealed that he holds no grudge against Internacional, ahead of his return to the Estádio Beira-Rio with new club Atlético Mineiro.
The 25-year-old was dismissed from Internacional five months ago due to disciplinary reasons, following just 13 games and two goals.
Jô then signed with fellow Brazilian side Atlético Mineiro, who face Internacional in the 29th round of the Brasileirão on Wednesday.
The game will mark Jô’s first return to the club since his release, but the Seleção international insists he is not looking for revenge.
He said: "In life, if you hold resentment, you cannot live. There are situations in life that you have to forgive.
"I left Internacional in a difficult situation and today I find myself in very different circumstances. Thank God, I'm fine."
Jô, who has scored seven goals this season, stated that he is only focused on getting three points and closing the gap between his side and first-placed Fluminense.
He added: "For me, it's just a game. The game is important because we have to get the three points.
"There's nothing special. Just to see friends, such as Kléber, who is my personal friend. But it is a normal game, which is worth three points."
