Inter defender Federico Dimarco is glad to have made another significant contribution to his team after coming off the bench in the second half to help the Nerazzurri take three points from their clash with Sassuolo at the Mapei Stadium.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the match yesterday, the 23-year-old spoke of feeling confident in himself as well as in the team and in coach Simone Inzaghi.

Dimarco had also played in the Nerazzurri’s match with Atalanta at the San Siro yesterday, where he failed to convert a late spot kick which could have won the game.

However, the player is not demoralized by the episode, and he even stated that he would have been happy to take the penalty which proved decisive against the Neroverdi yesterday evening had Lautaro Martinez not been on the pitch and the responsibility fallen to him.

Dimarco spoke of the confidence given to the players who came on as substitutes in the second half by the manager, explaining that “He told us to rest assured because we could win. We entered with the right attitude and we took the win home.”

On whether he would have stepped up to take the match-winning penalty he said, “If I had the opportunity, I would have done so without any problems.”

On his versatility playing as both a defender and wing-back, Dimarco stated that “it is also the work done with Juric that leads me to play like this – with the ball, and in attack I really have him inside. When I have to defend I am even more concentrated, last year he helped me a lot to improve the defensive phase.”
