Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Thiago Motta has revealed that he did not get on with many of his former Inter teammates, explaining that "things were not right" with Esteban Cambiasso and several others.
The Italy international parted company with the Nerazzurri in acrimonious circumstances in January, forcing through a move to the French capital on the final day of the transfer window.
Thiago Motta has made little attempt to hide his frustration with the way he was treated by the Inter management and admitted that he only had some semblance of a positive relationship with three Argentina internationals.
“Walter Samuel is a very good man," the 29-year-old told Sky Sport Italia. "I had a normal rapport with Javier Zanetti and knew Diego Milito from our time at Genoa.
"With the others and Cambiasso, though, things weren’t right. We didn’t get along at all.”
Thiago Motta also revealed that he is still bitter over the club's refusal to allow him to leave San Siro last summer.
“I left in January, but had been clear with Inter that I wanted to leave a lot earlier,” he explained. “I didn’t deserve to be treated like that, as I always gave my all for Inter.
"I had been clear with president Massimo Moratti and we’d reached a deal to leave straight away, but then [former coach Gian Piero] Gasperini wanted me at all costs and the club decided to keep hold of me. I was very upset."
The Brazilian-born midfielder, who has been capped seven times by the Azzurri, joined Inter from Genoa in 2009 and played a key role in the club's treble success the following year.
