Inter defender Federico Dimarco is glad to be committing his future to his boyhood with his new contract extension at the Nerazzurri close to being made official.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia ahead of this evening’s Serie A clash with Venezia, the 24-year-old expressed his happiness about the pending new deal.
Dimarco returned from a two-year loan spell with Hellas Verona this summer, and he cemented himself as having a place in the first team plans of coach Simone Inzaghi despite interest in his signature.
The defender’s performances have not disappointed, and the club have decided to reward his versatility and quality with a new contract, which is expected to be announced in the coming days.
Given that Dimarco is a boyhood Inter fan, the prospect of staying in the squad for seasons to come and continuing to play his football in an Inter shirt is a very positive one.
Of the important of winning this evening to keep up the recent run of good form he stated that “The last couple wins have undoubtedly been very important. Now Venezia awaits us, let’s try to end the week with a flourish.”
Of his expected new contract, Dimarco stated that “I’ve always dreamed of staying here, I can’t wait.”
And on how he direct free kicks are decided between himself and Hakan Calhanoglu, the defender explained that “I take them from the right, he does from the left.”
