Inter Milan midfielder Davide Frattesi feels that his stoppage time winner against Udinese was “on par” with his goal against Hellas Verona.

The 24-year-old spoke to InterTV, via FCInterNews, after the Nerazzurri’s 2-1 Serie A victory away in Udine.

Former Sassuolo midfielder Frattesi is really making a habit of scoring late winners for Inter.

The Italian international’s propensity for scoring goals from midfield was hardly a secret. He has shown that throughout his club career, and also for the national team.

And Frattesi has been one of Inter’s most prolific goalscorers this season.

That despite the fact that the 24-year-old rarely starts for the Nerazzurri. He has gotten the majority of his goals off the bench.

However, when Frattesi goes get on the scoresheet, he tends to really make it count.

In fact, the Azzurri midfielder has scored three times in stoppage time.

One of these goals came in the derby against AC Milan. Frattesi scored his first ever goal for Inter to put the seal on a 5-1 victory in the most important of fixtures.

And, objectively speaking, the Italian international’s other two stoppage time goals have been even more important.

Remarkably, Frattesi has twice scored in stoppage time for Inter this season when the scoreline has been 1-1.

Davide Frattesi: Winner Vs Udinese “On Par” With Goal Vs Hellas Verona

Frattesi called his late strike against Udinese “A very important goal.”

“We needed to take the three points,” he continued.

“I’d put it on par with the one I scored against Verona,” Frattesi said. “Maybe even more important.”

“These are very important matches,” he added. “But the next two, beginning with Cagliari next weekend, will be even more important.”

Frattesi also praised his captain. “Lautaro did well today,” he said. “Including on the goal.”

“He took a great shot,” the midfielder said of the Argentine’s effort off the post that he tapped in the rebound from.

“When I turned towards it, I thought it would be a goal,” he noted.

“And then it sat up in front of goal, and I was ready.”

Frattesi noted that “[Udinese goalkeeper Maduka] Okoye made a lot of big saves today.”
