Mourinho persuaded Wallace to join Inter
On loan Inter defender Wallace has revealed the reasons behind when he chose the loan move from Chelsea.
The Brazilian youngster could not get a work permit to sign for the Premier League side during pre-season, so was sent on loan to the San Siro.
He told reporters in Brazil that former Inter manager Jose Mourinho was the main reason he chose to sign for the Milan club, reports Football Italia.
“Chelsea alerted me to the fact that it was not possible to play for them because of my passport,” he told Globo Esporte.
“They wanted to send me to Vitesse Arnheim, but I did not want to go to Holland.
“I spoke with Mourinho and in the end I opted for Inter. I was looking to join a big club.”
