Federico Dimarco grew up in the Inter youth academy and the club still has an option on him, but he scored Parma’s winner at San Siro.
It was the debut Serie A goal for the full-back who turns 21 next month.
“I think we deserved the victory, because we fought hard as a group to the bitter end,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
He found the net with an extraordinary strike from 25 metres out, off the outside of the left boot to bounce in off the underside of the bar.
It was posited to Dimarco that this was a Roberto Carlos style of goal.
“Let’s lot exaggerate with comparisons. I scored a goal and I’m happy. I dedicate this goal to my daughter, who will be born in a month.
“I anticipated Matteo Politano and then saw a gap, so I hit it. It went well. I am a little sad that I scored it against Inter, because I am an Interista at heart, but it’s an important goal for the present and the future.”
Inter retain a buy-back option on Under-21 international Dimarco.
“I don’t know if it was destiny, but I am focused on Parma now. We have to do everything to achieve safety and then we’ll see.
“If Inter maintain that I am worthy of the club, then I’ll go there next season, otherwise I’ll be at another club.”
