The Nerazzurri full-back has promised to help the supporters forget Achraf Hakimi and insisted he is not ‘pressured’ to replace the Morocco international. ‘Now, it’s my turn’.

Achraf Hakimi

joined

Inter

from

Real Madrid

before the start of the previous season and impressed at right-back, meeting the back of the net seven times and contributing 10 assists in Serie A.

He played a key role in the Nerazzurri squad grabbing the scudetto under the reign of

Antonio Conte

after 11 years.

Denzel Dumfries

joined the Nerazzurri to replace the Moroccan and played in 10 matches with the Beneamata.

He was quizzed whether he is pressured to replace the ex-Real Madrid player.

Hakimi’s heir? I don’t feel this pressure,”

Dumfries told

SportMediaset

.

“He had a great season. He did a great job, but now it’s my turn.

“I believe in myself, and I know that my moment will arrive.”

Inter won their first game in the Champions League this week and they are getting ready to face Juventus this weekend.

The win over Sheriff was important, especially after the defeat to Lazio,”

the Dutchman added.

“It was fundamental to bounce back, and we did it in the best possible way.

“It was also important as we aim to qualify, we did a great job.”

The 25-year-old admitted that he had to adapt under the reign of Simone Inzaghi and living in Milan.

There’s a totally new system compared to the one I was used to playing in,”

he added.

“Even the environment, the country, the people. Everything was new.

“Sometimes it’s a bit difficult, but I try to do my best and I try to do it every day.”

“A historic match where two great clubs meet,” he said. “I think two of the greatest Italian teams.

“I’m focused on the match. It will be a great game.”
