Inter wing-back Matteo Darmian is happy with the result that the Nerazzurri achieved in tonight’s match, a 3-1 win against Hellas Verona, and hopes that the club can take inspiration and repeat last season’s heroics.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, as reported by FCInterNews, the Italian reflected on a match in which he provided the assist for what proved to be the winner, a headed goal by debutant Joaquin Correa.
Darmian started against the Gialloblu as he had done in last weekend’s opener against Genoa, and he helped the side achieve their second win from their opening two matches.
The Nerazzurri did not have it all their own way against Eusebio Di Francesco’s men, and had to come back from a 1-0 deficit, but in the end they showed the determination and quality necessary to get the desired three points and continue their winning start to the new season under Simone Inzaghi.
On his cross to assist Correa’s match-winner he said, “I did my best to keep the ball in play, I believed until the end. Then Tucu was also good. We did well to bring home a complicated game. Our desire is always to go out on the pitch and fight match after match.”
Of the new season he said, “Great players left, new ones arrived to which we have to adapt but who have integrated very well and have shown that they can contribute a lot to this team.”
“I think that the spirit has remained the same as last year and that must remain if we want to win and be competitive for all trophies. I think it’s a good starting point.”
Inter now turn their attention towards an away fixture against Sampdoria after the international break.
