Inter Wingback Federico Dimarco: “Happy To Have Gone Home With The Win”

Inter defender Federico Dimarco is glad to have managed to move past the Coppa Italia round of sixteen with an extra time win over Empoli at the San Siro.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia after the match, the 24-year-old expressed his happiness at getting the result after a match that was full of more event and drama than perhaps the Nerazzurri will have been expecting.

Inter needed extra time to put away Aurelio Andreazzoli’s men, with Dimarco and his teammates even looking on the verge of elimination before Andrea Ranocchia’s acrobatic equalizer towards the end of normal time.

It was a topsy-turvy game in which the Nerazzurri went ahead early but saw their opposition fight back in the second half after the introduction of several substitutes, but in the end they managed to navigate the potential pitfalls and book their passage to the next round.

“The main thing is that we won,” Dimarco reflected, “it wasn’t easy to play 120 minutes after recent matches, but we’re happy to have brought it home.”

On the San Siro pitch which looked to be causing players problems at times he said that “It was not in good condition, we hope it will be fixed for Saturday’s match against Venezia and then for the derby.”

On whether he prefers playing in the backline or at wing-back, Dimarco stated that “For me it’s the same, even as a central defender you can help the team create numerical superiority. I play where the coach asks me to.”

And on match-winner Stefano Sensi, Dimarco said that “He showed composure to score, I’m glad for him. He’s had a tough time.”
