Inter’s Italian international wingback Federico Dimarco believes he is living the dream right now after having been able to return to the Nerazzurri and become a starter.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, as reported via FcInterNews, in the immediate aftermath of the 3-2 win away against Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium, the former Inter youth team player underlined how his plan when out on loan was to always return to Inter.

“When you come through the youth ranks of a club you have to pay your dues, and I have arrived at Inter after having done the right things, also suffering and at times not playing a lot.

“I have always looked to work hard to one day be able to return to Inter, and after having spent a year and a half in Verona with Hellas, I am happy to have returned.

“During the week I always look to work hard, I’ll always play where I am asked to play even though I prefer to play as a wingback.

“The growth we are seeing is one the entire team has undergone. If we discard the defeat against Juventus in Turin, you can see that we have spent the last month and a half looking to recover the dropped points.

“We should be able to suffer less when we play away from home, but there’s always an opponent to consider out on the pitch.

“Today we won against a strong team, these are three important points. Winning here is never easy.”

Inter came back from a goal down to in 3-2 away against Atalanta to record their 10th win in the Serie A this season, making it their first win against a direct rival having lost all previous five so far this season.

The Nerazzurri have lost to Lazio, AC Milan, Udinese and Juventus away from home in the Serie A as well as Roma at the San Siro in early October so today’s win over Atalanta was a long awaited one against a direct rival.

Bosnian international Edin Dzeko scored a brace in today’s 3-2 win bringing his tally in the Serie A to six and nine overall in all competitions so far this season which saw Inter finally win away against a top six side in the Italian top flight.
