Nigerian international, Joel Obi has declared that he is only in Parma to regain form and stage a return to Inter Milan, where he rightly belong.
Obi, who on Monday signed for Parma on a season long loan stated that he decided to put pen on paper for Parma in a bid to play regularly and bounce back to reckoning. He was quick to add that he wont have any problem fitting into Parma, since it was a familiar terrain, where he knew a lot of people.
“I hope to return to Milan as soon as possible. This move to Parma is only temporary. This is a choice I’ve made to regain continuity after too many injuries that have held me back,” Obi stated.
Obi was, however, quick in adding that he would give his best to Parma.
“Although, from today I will be concentrating on Parma. I know a lot of people in the club , so fitting in wont be a problem,” he said.
Obi, 22, had been capped 12 times by the Super Eagles. He was not called up by Stephen Keshi for this weekend’s game against Malawi, no thanks to the fact that he was only coming back from injury.
