Inter wing-back Denzel Dumfries is glad to be with the Nerazzurri, and has been happy at the club since transferring from PSV earlier this month.
Speaking to Dutch broadcaster NOS, as reported by FCInter1908, the 25-year-old opened up about life at Inter and his early adjustments to making the switch.
Dumfries is still only at the very beginning of his Inter adventure, and he has not yet shown what he is capable of and what he was brought to the club for.
However, the Dutchman feels a strong gratitude that he has been given the opportunity to represent the club, and shows an ambition to settle in more and make a positive impression at the club.
For now, Dumfries accepts that there will be a continued adjustment period on and off the pitch, but he makes it clear that he wants to become an important player for the Nerazzurri.
He explained, “Inter is a dream come true. I felt happy when such a beautiful transfer was completed. It takes a while to get used to.”
On his adjustment, the Dutchman stated, “It wasn’t even easy, as I hadn’t trained in a group with PSV. I started at a disadvantage. But I was well received. There is also Stefan [de Vrij], who acts as my interpreter.”
As to whether he speaks Italian well, the 25-year-old stated, “Not much. I have to catch up with the other teammates, but I already feel ready to play. I had hoped to play more minutes at this stage, it’s not in my nature to be content with being a twenty-minute substitute.”
