Inter, Federico Dimarco: “The Nerazzurri Colors Mean a Lot to Me”

Inter wing back Federico Dimarco has revealed his absolute pleasure at being able to represent the his childhood club at the highest level.

As a product of the Nerazzurri’s youth academy, he made his debut for the club back in December 2014, aged just 17. However, he has now returned home after successive loan spells at lower tiered teams.

Speaking on Inter’s Matchday Programme, the 23-year-old commented on how much the club means to him.

“These colours represent a lot to me, they are the ones I grew up with. It’s been a long time since I first wore the shirt of Inter and I’m happy and honored to wear it today.”

Adding further, he said: “Football is my everything, my reason for living. In the locker room I have a wonderful relationship with everyone: Bastoni, Skriniar, Handanovic. I have known Barella since we were 15 years old.”

He made his debut with the club in Inter’s Europa League group stage match against Qarabag, where he appeared for just six minutes. He reminisced that moment with great pleasure.

“My debut with Inter, the Europa League match against Qarabag: I remember every moment and the feeling, I went in for D’Ambrosio, the coach was Roberto Mancini and when he called me it didn’t seem real. When I went out I had no words to describe that emotion,” he said.

Dimarco is back at the Giuseppe Meazza after spending the last season in a successful loan spell at Hellas Verona.
