Achraf Hakimi took centre-stage with a brace after Romelu Lukaku’s opener, as Inter continued to build momentum by beating Bologna 3-1.

Achraf Hakimi is well aware that his speed can be useful for Inter. Inter won 3-1 against Bologna; Hakimi scored two goals and brought victory to Inter Milan. With this victory, Inter reduced its difference in points with Milan to two points.

People talk about me being different, but I am the same, I have just been working hard and trying to make sure that I adapt to this new team and league. I’m still Hakimi,

” he told DAZN.

“I am trying to learn the language, get used to the people, the city, and it’s not dissimilar to Spanish, so it shouldn’t take too long.”

Achraf Hakimi plays as a right midfielder in Conte's 3-5-2 system, but the coach believes that Hakimi should learn to defend better.

“Conte talks to me a lot about the movements we need to make and we will get there eventually, it’ll become natural.

“I realise that my pace is a useful quality, so when there’s a lot of space in front of me, I can get up a head of steam and be more effective for the team.”
