Matias Silvestre: Failed to make much impact in his year at Inter Milan.

The Argentine defender started just six Serie A matches for Inter Milan last season in a loan from Palermo that then saw him join Inter permanently.

However the Rossoneri were looking to bolster their defensive options following a knee injury that ruled out Daniele Bonera for around three months.

Silvestre, 28, had been omitted from Inter's pre-season training squad by new manager Walter Mazzarri and had rejected approaches from Parma and Genoa before Milan offered the former Boca Juniors player a one year loan deal.

"I had hoped for a high level solution, and luckily Milan remembered me. I couldn't hope for more," said Silvestre.

"After I came back from an injury last summer, I tried to force my way through. Then the coach (Mazzarri's predecessor Andrea Stramaccioni) changed the scheme with a three man defence, and the results arrived.

"Everything has been difficult for me, but now I'm serene. Milan play with a four man defence.

"I feel good and looking forward to undergoing tests with Milan."

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
