Dzeko Explains Why He Came to Inter
And after this promising start at Inter, Edin Dzeko has discussed the match, his transition, and his reasons behind moving.
“It was an emotional day, especially as it was the first game with fans back in the stadium,” Dzeko told Inter TV.
“My mother was at San Siro too. It was an important day, ending with our victory and a goal that I worked really hard for.”
He further said: “I hadn’t scored in a long time in Serie A, so it was important to break that drought and boost my confidence for the future.”
“I feel like I’ve been playing here for years, I get along really well with my teammates and we work together smoothly,” he added. “That’s because there are many champions here who know how to play football, that’s why I came to Inter.”
Dzeko: I Heard Many Great Things about Inzaghi
Dzeko also spoke to DAZN and described getting to work with former Lazio coach Simeone Inzaghi. After all, the coach had been his rival in the Capital for so many years, for the longest time.
“I was nervous before the Genoa game and frankly that was unusual for me,” Dzeko said about his club transition.
“I’d been at San Siro many times as an opponent, so I almost went into the wrong dressing room and Ivan Perisic redirected me.”
“I heard many great things about Inzaghi from the players who worked with him,” he then said, about Inzaghi. “I saw the way Lazio played and was certain he’d be perfectly suited to me.”
