Inter Veteran Dzeko Reveals ‘6 Splendid Roma Years’: “I Have No Regrets”

Bosnian marksman Edin Dzeko handed Inter all three points as they welcomed Venezia at the Giuseppe Meazza before the start of the international break. He struck a thumping header right at the death after Denzel Dumfries curled in a pinpoint cross into the penalty area.

Dzeko has integrated extremely well in Simone Inzaghi’s frontline, replacing Romelu Lukaku’s absence with great maturity and professionalism. His move from Roma arrived unexpectedly, as Inter accelerated the search for a pure in-the-box marksman to take Lukaku’s place.

The 35-year-old striker has now come forward and revealed that he has no regrets over his time with the Giallorossi, having spent six years in the Italian capital.

Speaking of his move to Roma from Manchester City, Dzeko said: “I left with a 3-year contract, I had renewed to stay, but I didn’t get along with Pellegrini. I was almost 30 years old, I was in the best moment of my career, I didn’t want to be on the bench, so I chose Roma. I have no regrets, indeed.” (via Corriere della Sera)

Dzeko failed to capitalize on a single trophy during his six seasons at Stadio Olimpico.

“I only missed to win a trophy at Roma: otherwise, it’s been a splendid 6 years. A little up and down for me as for Rome, I carry it in my heart. Now I’m at Inter to win the Scudetto,” he said.

He finally shed light on the uneasiness and tension between club icon Francesco Totti and ex-Roma tactician Luciano Spalletti during the former’s

“It could have been solved in another way: one is a great coach and the other a club legend. It’s a pity it ended like that. I’m also sorry I didn’t meet Totti before that, I could have had a lot more fun and the same goes for him. But I enjoyed it, I am proud of the journey we undertook together,” he explained.

The ‘Bosnian Diamond’ scored 119 times for the Giallorossi in 260 matches across all competitions.
