Inter defender Danilo D’Ambrosio was the subject of an interview with Inter TV and the Italian spoke on a range of topics and firstly spoke on what football means for him.

“My first memory in football is when I started kicking the ball about as a child. Football for me is all about passion, love and dedication but also sacrifice.”

He proceeded to discuss what he gets up to in his free time.

“I watch only a few games, let’s just say the most important ones. I usually watch the Champions League on TV and luckily I will play in it this year.”

Afterwards, he then spoke on the relationship he has with his teammates and shared some funny stories about them.

“I have so many friends, each of them have been important for me from a footballing and human perspective. Yuto Nagatomo was a lot of fun, all it took was to say hello and we would be laughing. When he was here, I shared a room with Eder. At the moment, I spent a lot of time with Roberto Gagliardini, Antonio Candreva, Tomasso Berni and Samir Handanovic but I feel comfortable with everyone and try to help the youngsters out.

“Lately Candreva has started staring at himself in the gym. He wants a nice body but he has still not seen it yet [laughs]. Handanovic should really laugh some more, he is a very nice guy. As for Gagliarini, well he likes his video games…a lot, he spends most of his time playing them.”

The 30-year-old then spoke on some memorable goals from recent teams, firstly recalling Matias Vecino’s winner against Lazio that secured Inter’s place in the Champions League.

“It was a very exciting game, one which we approached with the right attitude. It was great at the end of the game and we will try to honour this competition that we have finally reached.

He proceeded to discuss a goal that comes to his mind in Inter history and the best goal he has been on the pitch for.

“Zanetti’s in the UEFA Cup final against Lazio is one that comes to mind. He was a fantastic player. The best goal? The one scored by Mauro Icardi when he was on his side in the air during the Milan derby.
