Inter’s veteran Bosnian international striker Edin Dzeko isn’t thinking about his expiring contract with the Nerazzurri but fully focused on doing a job for the team.

The former Manchester City and Roma striker underlined as much in an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN, as reported via FCInterNews, immediately after the 3-2 win in the Serie A away against Atalanta at the Gewiss Stadium.

“I’m not playing for a new contract, I am playing for Inter, doing my work every training session and in every game. If I can give something to the squad, not just in terms of goals, then I am always happy to.

“The years pass for everyone, it’s normal that this applies to me as well, but as long as I can I will give everything for Inter.

“When you feel good you want to continue to play, now the break comes at just the right moment. We have to rest well, it was very important to win today. And we’ll see what happens from January onward.

“Atalanta re-opened the game via a corner that shouldn’t have happened but this is football. Aside from the opening 30 minutes we did well.

“Napoli are a strong side, they have demonstrated that they are playing really well in the Serie A as well as the Champions League.

“But the season is long and you have to think about one game at a time, today we won and now we rest. We will think about playing Napoli in January.”

Edin Dzeko scored a brace, 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 direct rival this season.

Dzeko joined Inter in the summer of 2021 signing a two year deal which is set to expire at the end of June 2023 and has so far featured 70 times for the Nerazzurri scoring 26 goals in the process.

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.
