Inter Milan striker Marcus Thuram feels that he’s starting to develop a real understanding on the pitch with Denzel Dumfries.
The 26-year-old praised his teammates speaking to InterTV, via FCInterNews, following this evening’s win over Torino.
Thuram scored his fourth ever goal for Inter this evening.
And it was an important one, something which the Frenchman has been making a habit of scoring.
The last time that Thuram found the back of the net it was against Benfica. That was a precious goal in a 1-0 Champions League group stage win.
One thing that both of those goals had in common was that they saw Thuram open the scoring to unlock tough matches for Inter.
Another was that it was Dumfries who assisted the striker.
This time around, the former PSV wingback managed to play the ball straight to the feet of the 26-year-old.
There was a sense that Dumfries knew just where to find his teammate with his cutback. The weight of the pass was perfect to set Thuram up to finish past Granata keeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.

“He’s a great player,” the Frenchman said of his teammate.
“I’m developing a great understanding with him and today he gave me a great assist,” Thuram said of the Dutchman.
“I’m growing in every training session and in every match,” he added. “I hope to do even better next time.”
Of the win over Torino, Thuram said that “It was a good match.”
“Torino are a very physical team,” he added. “We scored three goals and took three points.”
And turning to the Champions League, he noted that “We play every three days. That means we always have to immediately start focusing on the next match.”
