Commenting upon Inter Milan latest individual performances, Neroazzurri gaffer, Simone Inzaghi, highlighting being pleased with Hakan Calhanoglu's performing so far - in spite of some criticisms addressed to former AC Milan playmaker, - stated:

"Dumfries? I thought it would have taken him longer due to the language barrier. Instead he’s ahead – he’s already played plenty of minutes for us. He’s a regular starter for Holland and was the captain of PSV. He’ll continue to get to grips with things over time, and his language skills will improve, so he’ll get better and better.

Lautaro and Correa being out? I’ve got options, in that case. Dzeko will start and I can play [Martin] Satriano alongside him, but I’ve also got Perisic and [Hakan] Calhanoglu. I’ll have to look at the condition Lautaro and Correa are in and see how they’ve recovered.

I’m really, really pleased with Hakan Calhanoglu. He’s an integral part of the project here and he never hides. He picked up a heavy knock against Latvia on international duty on Monday but since then he’s worked really hard to be ready for Saturday. I don’t know whether he’ll start or come off the bench, but I’m really pleased with the contribution he’s made.

I settled in here really well from the start. I really wasn’t expecting the Inter fans to welcome me the way they have. They’ve been brilliant with me and with the players – just look at the away trips we’ve had this season. They’re always there in huge numbers, making their support felt”.
