Inter striker Edin Dzeko has only been a Nerazzurri for less than two weeks, but he has already made a big impression and he already looks at home at the club.
Speaking to Inter TV, as reported by FCInter1908, the Bosnian reflected on his fit at the Nerazzurri, and spoke of feeling like he belongs at his new club and of being confident about the future.
Dzeko was the first signing to be brought in as the Nerazzurri looked to bolster their attack following the departure of Romelu Lukaku, and he has already given fans reason to think that he will be a reliable option for head coach Simone Inzaghi this season as he looks to build up his Nerazzurri project.
The 35-year-old’s performance against Genoa was exceptional, with the last goal in a 4-0 win capping off a strong overall display in which the former Roma man looked like the kind of centre-forward that Inzaghi needs to build his team around.
“It was an exciting day,” Dzeko said of his Nerazzurri debut, “also because after a year without fans, this season they are finally back.:
He continued, “My first match with Inter in a new stadium and with the fans. it was nice. My mother was also at San Siro. It was an important day for me, and it ended with a victory for the team and a goal from me, and I tried so hard.”
“I hadn’t scored in Serie A for a long time,” the Bosnian explained, “it was important to break my duck. Scoring a goal immediately gives me even more confidence for the future.”
On his start to life at Inter he said, “Already against Dynamo Kiev in a friendly match I felt an understanding with my teammates, it seems as though I have been playing together with them for many years. But it wasn’t difficult, there are many champions here who know how to play football.”
“That’s why I came here,” he continued, “I had a lot of fun. We are a strong team and we want to continue this path that started in the best way.”
On the upcoming match against Hellas Verona this Friday he said, “We must continue on this path, every point is important. Inter are Italian champions, but against Verona it will not be easy. But we are ready, and we want to do our best.”
