Inter wing-back Denzel Dumfries feels that he is settled in well at his club after a strong display and his first goal in a Nerazzurri shirt against Roma earlier this evening.
Speaking to InterTV after the match, the 25-year-old spoke positively of his teammates for helping him make the transition to Italian football after leaving PSV in the summer.
Dumfries has not been a regular in the Inter team since his summer move, playing at times and showing flashes of his quality, but appearing to be behind Matteo Darmian in the pecking order in the biggest occasions.
However, with Darmian out injured, the Dutchman has been given an opportunity to prove his quality, and he has not disappointed the team.
The right wing-back was part of a dominant display to cruise to a 3-0 win over the Giallorossi, and he was rewarded for his efforts with his first goal at the club.
“I feel good, we had a great match today,” he stated. “We enjoyed ourselves, there was space to attack and I’m satisfied.”
He acknowledged that “I’ve had ups and downs in a new situation – new club, new language. But my teammates and the coach help me a lot and I’m doing fine.”
Of learning Italian, the Dutchman stated that “I still don’t speak it, but I understand certain things.”
“We have confidence about our qualities,” he added, “and tonight we have shown that we are an excellent team. We respect Napoli and Milan, two great teams, but we aim to reach the top of the table.”
Of the sequence in which he blocked a shot and then scored, he stated that “The block was important, [Vina] had shot well. Then Bastoni produced an incredible cross and I scored.”
