Have you felt more confidence yet?
"Everything is fine with Inter and also with Belgium, the level of training is very high".
You have to play against Russia. What is your opinion on this team? Would you like to play in Russia one day?
"Why not? A good friend of mine played here, Quincey Promes, he told me it's a competitive championship. The Russian national team is also very strong."
You have adapted quickly to Italy, but there is the problem of racism. Did you know before leaving for Serie A?
"Yes, in Cagliari it was a difficult moment. They warned me before leaving Italy, Serie A and UEFA had to do more. You can raise a sign with 'no to racism', but then you really have to defeat it. 'I like Italy anyway, people on the street are very kind to me and my family likes it too. "
Will you play 50 or 100% tomorrow?
"We come to win, we have no pity on anyone. We see this match as a final, we know that Russia will be motivated, but we are not here to play a friendly match."
You have a good relationship with Conte. Is the affection of a coach important?
"It's more a matter of honesty: when I'm not doing well, I want you to tell me. I'm 26 and I can still improve. Koeman, Mourinho and Conte were honest and they didn't lie to me. My relationship with Solskjaer was also good, but I wanted to leave: I told him in March and I respect him because he respected my choice, even if he wanted to keep me ".
