Inter midfielder Matias Vecino insisted that he couldn’t wait to for the start of the new season, whilst admitting that the team had a responsibility to defend their Scudetto crown.

The Uruguay international netted in today’s 2-0 friendly win over Parma at the Stadio Ennio Tardini, as the Nerazzurri prepare for the start of campaign in two weeks’ time.

Speaking to Inter TV after the final whistle, and as reported by, Vecino reflected on his attacking movement from midfield and looked ahead to the defence of the Scudetto.

“Inter never give anything up. It’s important to get minutes in the legs ahead of the season. It was a good game, we need to improve but we are on the right track,” the 29-year-old claimed.

“I always try to get into the area and join the forwards to be in that position. Maybe those running in from behind can be dangerous. The ball does not always arrive, but when it does I am happy.

“The Scudetto badge is a beautiful thing, but we have a great responsibility. We are energised for the new season, we continue to prepare for a good start.”

Inter’s match against Parma saw the return of fans to the stadium following a season played behind closed doors and Vecino felt it made an impact.

“Playing behind closed doors was bad, it felt like a training sessionToday it was a different atmosphere, even if the stadium wasn’t full. Let’s hope it’s like this at San Siro.

“My aim is to find consistency, doing what I couldn’t last year. I had a major injury and it’s behind me. Now I am better physically and mentally,” Vecino concluded.

Inter begin their Serie A campaign with the visit of Genoa on 21 May at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
