Inter target Marash Kumbulla discussed his career and his favourite opponents in a live interview on Hellas Verona’s Instagram page yesterday. His words were noted in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I have to thank Tony D’Amico, who has always supported and believed in me, and Ivan Juric.”

The 20-year-old Albanian defender, who is contracted to the Gialloblu until 2022, then touched on how special it feels for him to play for the Verona based club.

“I’m living the dream. At the Stadio Bentegodi I was also a ball-boy, I’ll never forget the day when I was on the sidelines in the 3-0 win over Genoa where Luca Toni scored twice. I feel great, I’m wearing the shirt of the team I grew up loving.”

Finally, Kumbulla spoke about the hardest striker to defend against as well as his favourite three defenders.

“The hardest striker to mark? Dybala. My favourite three defenders? Van Dijk, Chiellini and Sergio Ramos. Between Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi, I’ve always preferred Messi.”

Inter are incredibly keen to sign the 20-year-old Albanian in the summer transfer window, looking for a replacement for former Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin, who is expected to leave after only one season. Kumbulla has impressed many in his first season in Serie A, being a core part of one of the best defenses in the league.

Kumbulla has made 19 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1581 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal and helped keep seven clean sheets.
