Inter wing0back Denzel Dumfries has not had the strongest of starts to his first campaign in Serie A, though he also has the ability to improve.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who describe the Dutchman as “rough but with the ability to improve” and highlight that he needs to become more consistent and precise in his game.
Dumfries showed flashes of why he was signed in the summer against Udinese with an important defensive block as well as an assist at the other end for Joaquin Correa’s second goal to seal the victory.
However, the 25-year-old also looked off the pace at times, not quite able to make the right moves or passes throughout the match.
This has been the story for Dumfries since his summer arrival from PSV, as he has impressed sporadically but also put in less-than-impressive performances as he has failed to really make the right-sided role his own.
The Dutchman is undoubtedly capable of feeling his way into the team and becoming the starting option on the right side of the team, but he must work to get to that point.
