MONZA - Denzel Dumfries' first match at Inter was as a spectator as the Nerazzurri beat Dynamo Kyiv in Monza but the Dutchman says he can't wait to get out on the field with his new team-mates.
“The feeling is amazing,” the 25-year-old told Inter TV. “I'm very happy to join the champions of Italy. It's a big opportunity for me and I'm happy to be here.
“I'm a wide defender and I like to attack a lot. I think I'll fit in at Inter as they play with five at the back, as I have done with the Netherlands.”
Another of the positives about moving to Inter is the chance for Dumfries to join up with his compatriot Stefan de Vrij.
"He's a good friend of mine and we're from the same city. I know him very well. I'm happy that he's here and that we're now team-mates.”
Denzel added that he hopes to follow in the footsteps of the many illustrious Dutch names who passed through the club before him and enjoying a successful season with the Nerazzurri.
"I know which Dutch players have played here before. It's an honour to join them on the list.
“I hope we can have a great season, maybe win another league title and do well in the Champions League. I can't wait to get started. Forza Inter!”
