Inter owned striker Sebastiano Esposito, who is currently on loan at Serie B side SPAL, scored his first goal with the club against Pescara yesterday. He discussed it in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN after the game.
“The first person to wait for my first goal was certainly me and my whole family. It’s a beautiful feeling, I certainly wouldn’t have scored it without my teammates.
“This time I thank Valoti, I hope to thank him again or the others.”
He commented on how he would thank his teammate, 27-year-old Italian midfielder Mattia Valoti.
“I will probably pay for dinner for everyone.”
Finally, Esposito explained his celebration, which was dedicated to his small puppy.
“Yes, since he arrived, he has filled my days with joy and love, so it is for him and for all my family that I am always close, especially in this difficult period.
“I was suffering a lot, the performances were not coming and above all the goal. I thank all my family and those who are near me day by day.”
The 18-year-old Esposito, who is contracted to the Nerazzurri until 2025, is just on a dry loan at SPAL, in order to give him some regular playing time and experience.
So far this season he has made nine appearances across all competitions, for a total of 686 minutes. In that time, he has scored one goal, against Pescara yesterday.
He was promoted to the Inter first team by coach Antonio Conte last season after impressing in the pre-season training camp.
He made 15 appearances for the Nerazzurri, scoring one goal, a penalty against Genoa gifted to him by teammate Romelu Lukaku.
