Milan (AP) – For football pro Marcus Thuram, it’s a pleasant return to his former home. 23-year-old attacker Borussia Mönchengladbach was born in Parma, just 120 kilometers from Milan.
“I’ve lived in Parma for four years and a total of nine years in Italy,” Thuram said at the last press conference before the Champions League game at Inter Milan on Wednesday (9pm / DAZN).
It is therefore not a “home game” for him, said the son of former world-class defender Lilian Thuram, who speaks Italian but did not really trust himself to the Italian journalists in Tuesday night’s video suit and preferred to speak English. Regardless of where he made his Champions League debut, the French forward stressed: “For me a dream comes true. As a child you always dream of playing in such a great stadium. No matter where, it will certainly be a be special to me. Game. “
Together with his French farmer Alassane Plea, he would have to crack the Inter defense. Thuram knows that this will not be an easy endeavor for coach Antonio Conte’s internationally experienced and star-studded team. “All Inter players are very good,” said the forward, who has scored 11 goals in 35 Bundesliga appearances since joining Borussia. Thuram has been successful once this season. “Inter is a strong team. But we hope we can get them into trouble.”
