Wingback Denzel Dumfries has grown and developed throughout the season, and now he looks to be indispensable for Inter on the right side of the team.
This is highlighted in today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who devoted a section to the 25-year-old’s form to make himself a key man to this Nerrazzurri side.
Dumfries did not immediately cement a place for himself within the Nerazzurri’s starting eleven, with Matteo Darmian often preferred to him during the first half of the campaign, particularly in big games.
However, an injury to Darmian at the end of November meant that Dumfries was called on to take the Italian’s place, and he has been extremely convincing ever since.
Now, the Dutchman has nailed down a starting berth on the right, and his form has continued to be a highlight even as the overall form of the team has dropped off since the beginning of February.
As the Gazzetta highlight, with Dumfries playing the way he has been, the former PSV man has been a key figure in making sure that Inter’s slump in form hasn’t been any worse than it has been.
