Forlan admits difficult Inter start
PORTO ALEGRE, Jan 06, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
Uruguay international striker
Diego Forlan has admitted he endured a tough start to his career
at Brazilian club Internacional.
Forlan joined the club six months ago but failed to recapture
the form that won him the best player award at the 2010 World Cup
in South Africa. He found the back of the net on just five
occasions in 19 games.
Now, with a full pre-season training program ahead of him, the
veteran is hoping for a more productive 2013 as he looks to
guarantee his place in Uruguay's 2014 World Cup squad.
"The start to my Inter career was not how I imagined. Scoring
goals is a characteristic of mine. I have more chances this year
to do that," he said.
And despite being in the twilight of his career, the
33-year-old revealed he is still focused on representing Uruguay
at the next World Cup.
"We (Uruguay) still have to qualify. The expectation is growing
because the World Cup is getting closer. It would be great but we
know qualification will not be easy," he said.
Forlan has represented Manchester United, Atletico Madrid and
Internazionale in a glittering career which has seen him score
over 200 goals. The striker now hopes to recreate some of his
European success with his new club.
