De Boer: 'Can't wait for Inter-Milan'

New Inter Coach Frank de Boer “can’t wait to experience the Milan Derby” and hints there might not be any more signings.

The tactician took over from Roberto Mancini this week, even though the Serie A season kicks off on August 20.

“I can’t wait to experience the Milan Derby,” the former Ajax boss told Mediaset Premium.

“There are many famous derbies in Europe, like Glasgow or Madrid, and Inter-Milan is truly special. I can’t wait to enjoy San Siro from the bench in a fantastic atmosphere.”

De Boer makes his debut in tonight’s friendly with Borussia Monchengladbach and was asked whether his arrival would transform their transfer strategy.

“It’s too early to say if we need new players, as I have to get to know those in the squad and understand what they can bring.

“A defender could well play in midfield, so therefore it would not be necessary to make any new buys. If we are missing someone, I’ll ask for their purchase, but for now I can say we won’t be buying anyone.

“In a few weeks we will make some decisions.”
