Nigeria international Joel Obi says he will always be grateful to Italian Serie A club Inter Milan.


The central midfielder was nurtured in the Inter academy between 2005 and 2010, before being promoted to the club's first team.


Inter sold him to Serie A side Torino in 2015 having made 50 appearances in the league for the Black and Blues.


Obi spoke to Kwesse Sports about life as a Inter player.


''Inter Milan I always say is a team that I have to thank every day of my life because I started when I was fourteen years at the Academy," he said.


"They brought me to first team and everything went well. I know it's not easy, sometimes it's God's will.


"They helped me a lot in my career because I learnt so many things. It was amazing for me."


Obi has made 21 league appearances for Torino this season - netting five goals in the process.
