Inter defender Federico Dimarco is glad to be back playing in front of fans at the San Siro without capacity restrictions.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the team’s 2-0 win over Hellas Verona, the 24-year-old emphasized the importance of playing in front of the fans pushing the team on.

Inter played their first home match since the complete lifting of capacity restrictions in Italy at the start of the month, having already faced Juventus away in front of a packed Allianz Stadium last weekend.

The Nerazzurri gave their fans something to cheer about by producing an excellent display to take all three points against a Gialloblu team who have showed all season that they can give anyone a game.

The atmosphere inside the stadium was predictably positive, and Dimarco and his teammates were very appreciative of getting to play in front of so many fans after more than two years without it.

“It’s wonderful having everyone back,” he said. “It was bad playing in front of an empty stadium – now that you have 70,000 people pushing you, it’s something else.”

Of when he starts, Dimarco said that “The coach decides when, I’m available like everyone else is. The important thing is to be compact and approach the matches right as we did today.”

On how the team decides whether he or Hakan Calhanoglu take a free kick, he explained that “I prefer to kick it from the other side, but we’ve also tried one thing that I won’t tell you about.”
