Inter defender Federico Dimarco feels grateful for the support of his teammates and fans even after he missed a penalty which would have seen the Nerazzurri go ahead late in this evening’s match with Atalanta at the San Siro.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the match, the 23-year-old gave his immediate reaction to a match in which his side had both led and trailed before eventually sharing the points with La Dea after an open encounter.

Dimarco came on during the second half, and he was entrusted with the responsibility of taking the spot kick after the Nerazzurri were awarded a penalty by VAR for a Merih Demiral handball in the penalty area.

The 23-year-old was unable to score from the spot, striking the crossbar with his effort, and he regrets not doing better in a situation which could have potentially earned his team all three points.

However, he wants to focus on looking forward and working rather than dwelling on what could have been after his miss.

“I immediately decided where I was going to shoot as soon as I got the ball,” he said. “I’m sorry I missed the penalty and didn’t help the team win, but I’m happy for my teammates’ words after the mistake.”

“It was a really good match, I felt pushed on by the crowd. Sorry to have lost points at home, but we are already concentrating on the next one,” he continued.

Dimarco concluded, “I feel more responsible and I always try to give my best, both in matches and in training. Now maybe I will also train on penalties [he smiled].”
