Mariga has not yet featured for Inter this season, as he recuperates from a knee injury suffered at the beggining of the year while playing for fellow Serie A side Parma.
He is close to a return to first team action after hard-work on his knee and continued physiotherapy and now, he has taken time to thank those that helped him while on the path to recovery.
- It 's been a very difficult time as I have sat out of action for six months and it's hard.
- Who helped me the most at Inter ? Well, all the players, but especially Walter Samuel because he has experienced the same problem, and he told me what to do to recover, and thanks to him, it has helped me a lot.
- I'm working a lot with the doctor and with the massage therapist to find out when I can go back to completely playing, he told Sport Mediaset.
No Europa action
