Juan Jesus dreams of Internazionale captaincy in the futureJuan Jesus wants to be Inter captain
Young Internazionale defender Juan Jesus admits it is “boring” being injured and has revealed his dream of captaining the San Siro side in the future.
The 22-year-old is currently out of action after suffering medial collateral ligament damage in his right knee so made time to do a Twitter Q&A recently.
Football Italia quoted the views of the Brazilian defender and he started off by revealing his frustration at sitting on the sidelines.
Juan Jesus said: “This was my first serious injury. I hope to recover as quickly as possible.
“It’s certainly boring not being able to play. I already had this routine of training, retreat, game. It will pass. I am treating it as an experience.”
The former Internacional defender went on to discuss the passionate Nerazzurri fans and reveal where he sees himself in five years time.
Juan Jesus said: “The thing that struck me most about the Inter fans is their support, as they are truly passionate about the team.
“Would I like to become Inter captain? Of course, but it’s not just up to me. My dream is to take Inter as far as possible.
“Where do I see myself in five years? As captain of Inter. I’d certainly have a lot more experience at that point.”
