Inter defender Denzel Dumfries has made it clear that it is now his turn to be the right back at Inter rather than the departed Achraf Hakimi, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with Sport Mediaset, Denzel Dumfries was asked if he is the heir to Achraf Hakimi who left Inter for Paris Saint Germain in the summer so that Inter can raise more funds.

“I don’t feel this pressure, but he did have an amazing season. He did a great job, but now it’s my turn. I believe in myself and I know my time will come.”

Denzel Dumfries joined Inter late in the summer transfer window from PSV Eindhoven in the summer, so his disjointed pre-season has meant he is taking some time to find his stride with Inter.

He was clearly happy with the win that Inter got over FC Sheriff on Tuesday night and feels it was vital for their Champions League qualification hopes.

“The victory over FC Sheriff was important, especially after the defeat against Lazio. It was essential to be back and we did it in the best way. A qualification perspective was also important, we did a great job.

“Here is a totally new game system compared to what I used to play. Even the environment, the country, the people, all new. So yeah, sometimes it’s a bit difficult but I try to do my best and I try to do it every day.”

Speaking about the match against Juventus at the weekend, Denzel Dumfries showed he is excited and focused on the contest.

“Yes, it is a historic match that sees two great clubs face off. I think two of the greatest Italian teams: I am focused on the race.”
