Schick: Inter link is flattering

Can Buriram United take any positives from ACL 2019 disappointment?

Sampdoria striker Patrik Schick admits he is flattered to be linked with Inter Milan but insists he is focused on doing well at his current club.

The Czech signed for the Blucerchiati from Sparta Prague in the off-season and has so far contributed eight goals for his new employers.

His performances have reportedly drawn the interest of the Nerazzurri, but Schick remains committed to the Sampdoria cause.

"Of course it's pleasing to be appreciated by other teams," Schick told Tuttosport.

"I'm flattered, like all other players in my position. That's not my job, though, I'll leave it to my agents. I'm just thinking of Sampdoria.

"Besides, I'm happy here, the fact that there are so many youngsters here from other countries has fostered integration in the group, because we're all starting from the same place.

"Next year, when we've had a season's experience, I'm sure we'll do better and get important results."
