Longo: Espanyol right choice

Young Italian forward Samuele Longo has spoken of the circumstances this summer that saw him move to Espanyol, reflecting that it was the right decision.

The Inter-owned striker has joined Los Periquitos this summer for a season-long loan, mainly for the opportunity it presented in playing time.

“I left Inter to gain experience and I wanted to play with a certain amount of consistency,” Longo told FC Inter News.

“It was all agreed in a calm manner, in total agreement with Inter and with my agent.

“I had a good summer at Inter and fitted in well alongside some excellent teammates under a great Coach, then, at the end of August, a different decision was made.

“I think it was the right choice.”

Longo scored on his debut for Espanyol last weekend, but finished up on the losing side as Mauricio Pochettino’s side fell 3-2 to Levante.
