FLORENCE – Edin Dzeko towered above the rest as only he can do, with a header from point-blank range to put Inter into the lead at the Franchi. Fiorentina put up a tough fight and had the visitors on the ropes in the first half, but the Nerazzurri did well to turn it around, thanks in part to the Bosnian’s fourth goal in five appearances for the club. Dzeko spoke to DAZN after the game.
“Every goal is important to me, but when it’s decisive, such as the one today, it’s even more important. That was the sort of game that great teams win and we are a great team.
“In the first time we struggled, but we knew that Fiorentina would drop off and we then played better, immediately managing to score two goals that changed the game.
“My understanding with Lautaro is improving. He’s a top player and it’s easy to develop that understanding. I’m pleased to be playing alongside such top players.
“We came out on top with a fine team display and we hope to win many other games together.
“Since the start of the season, I’d already had other headed chances from corners, but now I’ve finally scored one. It’s great to attack corners when Dimarco and Calhanoglu take them.”
