SANTIAGO, July 31 (Xinhua) -- Former Chilean footballer Ivan Zamorano Thursday hailed compatriot Gary Medel's imminent move to Inter Milan.
Zamorano, who played for Inter from 1996 to 2001, said: "It makes me happy to see another Chilean wear that jersey. I'm confident he'll do well, he's a fighter. Gary will be good for Inter and Inter for Gary."
Chile's sports dailies, citing European press, reported the central defender for Argentina's Boca Juniors joined Inter.
"(Medel) plays really well with his feet (and) is a leader on the field, and that's what Inter needs," said Zamorano.
Medel is widely credited for his national team's notable performance at the 2014 Brazil World Cup, which ended on July 13.
