Inter wingback Robin Gosens is hoping that he is able to rediscover his best form soon.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, the German expressed optimism that he can fight to show his best qualities again, and also stated that should he score against his old team Atalanta he will decline to celebrate.

Gosens has not had the best time of things since joining Inter in January of this year.

Injuries have not only restricted the 28-year-old’s appearances, but also made it difficult for him to find physical consistency.

Moreover, the former Atalanta wingback has found competition for places difficult, with Ivan Perisic ahead of him in the pecking order last season and then Federico Dimarco this.

“I want to be what I’ve always been,” he said.

“The fans and the club that trusted me deserve the real Robin.”

“Just look at what Atalanta paid when they signed me [€700,000] and then look at how much growth I’ve had to get here.”

Gosens noted that “I arrived as a stranger and became a German international, and a real Serie A level player.”

“Being here makes me very happy,” he continued of being at Inter and in Serie A, “I’m at one of the best teams in the world and it makes me proud.”

Gosens then recalled that “It’s surprising that I arrived here during my worst period, during a long injury.”

“But I fought for three years to get an opportunity like this, it went well and I’m happy.”

“Now I’m thinking a lot about why my body doesn’t work the way I want it to,” Gosens continued.

The German noted that “The injury was very serious, I underestimated the impact it had on my body.”

“I haven’t really played for a year and I’ve missed having the matches in my legs,” he continued, “without that it’s hard to get to where you want.”

“Now I feel better and better, now the final thing missing is playing consistently, and I’m working on that.”

Of Inter coach Simone Inzaghi, Gosens called him “Very understanding, he talks a lot with the players to know how we’re doing, including off the pitch.”

“He still feels a bit like a footballer himself, and he understands us very well.”

“When I have problems off the pitch I can go to him and talk about it, which is a great quality to have,” the 29-year-old said of his coach.

“He manages the team very well because he understands us.”

Of the process that led him to join Inter, Gosens recalled that “Obviously I did very well at Atalanta which led to a lot of interest, but I always prioritized either returning to Germany or staying in Italy, so Inter came in at the right time for me.”
