Inter Milan midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan believes that Federico Dimarco meant his goal against Frosinone as a cross.

The Armenian spoke to Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri’s 2-0 Serie A win over Frosinone.

Dimarco scored the opener against Frosinone this evening.

And it wasn’t just any goal from the Italian international.

Dimarco had already scored one spectacular goal this season. He found the back of the net with a brilliant volley from range in an away win against Empoli in September.

But the wingback outdid himself with his effort against Frosinone this evening.

Dimarco spotted Giallazzurri keeper Stefano Turati off his line.

And the Inter wingback floated it over the keeper’s head. It was the most audacious of efforts from just beyond the halfway line, and it came off.

But in the view of Dimarco’s teammate Mkhitaryan, the 26-year-old may well not even have meant the goal at all.

Mkhitaryan: Dimarco Goal Vs Frosinone Meant As A Cross?

“I think that he meant it as a cross,” Mkhitaryan said of Dimarco’s goal.

“But a goal is a goal,” he went on. “We can’t judge.”

“I’m happy for him, and also for the team. But I’m being honest.”

The former Roma midfielder went on that “Today I can say that we’re happy with what we did,”

“From tomorrow everyone will leave for their national teams.” he went on.

“When they return we’ll start thinking about the match against Juve.”

“There’s still time to prepare for it,” Mkhitaryan noted of the Derby d’Italia. “What matters is that we have to win it.”

He noted that “We’re calm. We understand that we’re top of the table, but we don’t lose our heads.”

“There are still 26 games left to play, and we have to continue our journey,” he said of the rest of the season.
