From a young supporter in the stands to a protagonist on the pitch. Inter Milan wingback Federico Dimarco is now preparing himself for another Derby.

The 25-year-old was a mere child when he used to accompany his uncle to the San Siro’s Curva Nord on matchday.

The Italian is a lifelong Nerazzurri supporter. His mood would often change based on the club’s results.

So as La Gazzetta dello (via FcInterNews) explains, this is yet another Derby della Madonnina for Dimarco. After all, he has been living the thrill of the Derby since childhood, albeit as a mere supporter.

But nowadays, the Italy international has established himself as a stalwart for both club and country. He is also amongst the best three players in his position worldwide, argues Nerazzurri legend Andreas Brehme.

At this point, Dimarco’s breathtaking displays no longer surprise anyone. This season, he has already contributed with a couple of assists in the first three rounds of Serie A.

Federico Dimarco Is A Lifelong Nerazzurri Supporter Who Established Himself As A Stalwart At Inter Milan

This Saturday, the former Parma and Hella Verona man will be looking to deliver the goods against the Rossoneri.

As the source explains, Dimarco will give his all from the very first minute of the match. Afterwards, when he gets tired, Carlos Augusto could take over on the left flank.

The former Monza man signed for the Nerazzurri in the summer as a replacement for Robin Gosens.

The Italo-Brazilian has entered the pitch as a second-half substitute for Dimarco in the first three rounds of the season. The source expects a similar scenario to occur in Saturday’s Derby.
