Inter striker Edin Dzeko believes that he has had the impact that he anticipated he would with the Nerazzurri since joining in the summer from Roma.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia following his match-winning performance from off the bench against Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium, the Bosnian was confident in his ability to contribute a lot to the Nerazzurri.

Dzeko has now scored six goals from seven matches in Serie A in a Nerazzurri shirt, with his diving header to equalize against the Neroverdi only one more to add to his tally.

The 35-year-old scored with his first touch less than a minute after coming off the bench in the second half, and he also won the decisive penalty and had a goal ruled out for an offside in a performance which showed why his current club brought him in.

The Bosnian was brought to the club in August following the difficult sale of Romelu Lukaku, and he looks to have been a big help already as the team look to continue to score goals.

Of his entrance onto the pitch as part of a quadruple substitution, Dzeko stated that “We came in to make a difference, that’s what the coach asks of us because we have so many strong players and we can’t all play all the time.”

“Surely we are also a little tired,” he went on, “but when you come on you have to give more than 100%. We entered like this and in the end it paid off.”

Of why his team have been unable to find the back of the net in the Champions League he said, “There is no explanation, from the sofa everything is easier to comment on. Football is like this, today you are wrong and tomorrow you score. We haven’t scored in the Champions League yet, but this victory is fundamental for us today.”

On his impact at Inter Dzeko stated, “I expected it because I know my qualities and Inter also expected it, that’s why they signed me. I always try to give my best for this team like today, playing my best.”

And on the possibility of the Scudetto he stated, “Let’s not look so far ahead, every month there are seven games. Today we all suffered, in the end we took home three fundamental points. For us internationals there is no rest, but we’re thinking about Lazio after the national team.”
