APPIANO GENTILE - Edin Dzeko has spoken to Inter TV about his joy at joining Inter.
“It feels great to be here. I'm thrilled,” the Bosnian said. “This is a great opportunity for me and I want to thank the coach and the directors for showing so much faith in me and believing I can still make a difference.
“Inter are a huge club, the champions of Italy, and I've seen what they're about during my six years in Serie A. Now I'll get to play for them myself and I'm delighted. I can't wait to get out there with my new team-mates.”
Dzeko will be coached by Simone Inzaghi after facing him as an opponent in the Rome derby on numerous occasions.
“I spoke to him and we joked about it. He said, 'At last we're not on opposite sides!' We've gone up against each others many times and I'm happy to work with him because he showed what he's capable of at Lazio. I'm looking forward to training with him.”
The striker also gets to link up again with his friend and former team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov.
“I spoke to him too. It looks like we're destined to be together after Manchester City and Roma. He's a smashing lad and a superb player. I'm glad I'll get to play with him again.”
Finally, Edin had a message for the Nerazzurri fans.
“I've only just arrived but I know Inter have a team full of stars. I'm sure we'll enjoy ourselves and the fans will too. A big hello to all of them. I'll give my all for this club.”
