The physical problem which saw Inter defender Federico Dimarco exit the pitch during yesterday’s Serie A match against Sampdoria was nothing more than cramp.
This according to Italian news outlet FCInter1908, who report that the 23-year-old was substituted midway through the second half at the Marassi because he was suffering from cramp but that there is no major injury and that he will certainly be available for Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
Dimarco made his first start for Inter yesterday and marked the occasion with his first goal in a Nerazzurri shirt and a solid performance to mark the occasion, but he had to be removed during the second half.
It had been thought after the match that the reason for this was nothing more than cramp, and this was confirmed today.
It remains to be seen if Dimarco will be used against Real Madrid, but there is no reason that he will be kept out of the squad.
