Internazionale defender Dodô admits facing former club Roma in the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup will be "a bit weird"
Internazionale defender Dodô admits facing former club Roma in the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup will be "a bit weird.”
The two sides are currently level on three points in Group A and need a win to have a chance of overhauling Manchester United and progressing to the Final, when they meet at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday.
For Dodô, who is on loan from Roma, it is a first opportunity to come up against his former employees.
The 22 year-old made 35 appearances across the past two seasons for the Giallorossi, after being signed from Corinthians in July 2012, and concedes that he will have mixed emotions if he gets the chance to play in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“It will be a bit weird,” he told Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia.
“Coming up against them will be like seeing your ex-girlfriend shortly after the end of the relationship, together with someone else.
“It is a strange feeling, perhaps a little bad to begin with, but I will be prepared for the match for this competition.”
Should Inter beat Roma and Manchester United be defeated by Real Madrid, Walter Mazzarri’s side will top the standings and meet either Liverpool, Manchester City or Olympiacos in Tuesday’s Final at Florida's Sun Life Stadium.
