Inter defender Federico Dimarco wants to go to Genoa and immediately bounce back from Sunday’s damaging defeat against Sassuolo.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, the 24-year-old emphasized getting back to winning ways in the Nerazzurri’s away trip to face Genoa, and also spoke about teammate Marcelo Brozovic who he expects will agree a contract extension.
The Nerazzurri have now gone three matches without a win in Serie A, with a loss to AC Milan and draw against Napoli being capped off by the shock 2-0 defeat at the hands of Sassuolo over the weekend.
The team still have the quality to go on and win the Scudetto, but they must immediately put this run of form behind them and return to their best through the run-in, and there is no margin for error.
Dimarco knows what he and his teammates have to do and feels that taking three points is the only option on Friday.
“We must put this misstep behind us and we must not let all the good work we’ve already done be undone,” he said. “Our focus is on Friday’s match, we must go to Genoa and win.”
“Against Sassuolo we approached the game wrong and that’s what happened,” he added, “now we have to think one match at a time and reach our objectives. The title race remains open.”
And on teammate Marcelo Brozovic, he said that “For us he’s fundamentally important, there are few players like him in Europe. The club made the right choice and he’s happy to stay.”
