Inter left back Federico Dimarco has been discussing his debut for the club as well as his overall relationship with the team he grew up at, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking to Inter’s matchday programme, as reported by FCInter1908, Federico Dimarco explained that football is his reason for living and that Inter means everything to him.

“These colours represent a lot to me, they are the ones I grew up with. It’s been a long time since I first wore the shirt of Inter and I’m happy and honoured to wear it today.”

“Football is my everything, my goal always, a reason for living. In the locker room I have a wonderful relationship with everyone: Bastoni, Skriniar, Handanovic. I have known Barella since we were 15 years old.”

Federico Dimarco made his debut for the Nerazzurri when Roberto Mancini was still in charge back in 2014. He was introduced with six minutes to play in a goalless Europa League group stage draw against Qarabag.

“My debut with Inter, the Europa League match against Qarabag: I remember every moment and feeling, I went in for D’Ambrosio, the coach was Roberto Mancini and when he called me it didn’t seem real. When I went out I had no words to describe that emotion.”

Federico Dimarco also reminisced on some of his career highlights so far. Due to the fact he spent 18 months on loan at Hellas Verona where he really came of age, his starring moments have come for the Gialloblu.

“A match that I will not forget is the one played last January, my first goal with the Verona shirt, a powerful volley in the match that was a draw against Torino.”

“A beautiful and important victory was the one last season with Verona against Napoli. After less than a minute we were down by a goal, then we came back to 3-1, a comeback of character that began with my goal/”

The 23-year-old was almost sold by Inter last summer but he is now seen as an important rotation player in the squad.
