The 33-year old joined Inter on a free transfer in the previous transfer window.

Diego Godin admits he is still finding his feet in Italian football but finds it comfortable at Inter having moved in the summer on a free transfer from Atletico Madrid to the San Siro. 

The veteran defender looks to take things one at a time but emphasized his importance to the squad and vice versa saying, “I certainly feel important, they know my career, they know who I am, but I work like everyone else and my teammates help me a lot. Ours is a dressing room made up of good people, warm-hearted lads.”

​”I think that in football it is the same as any other job, when you arrive you always have to enter a little at a time, it is not in my style to impose myself,” said Godin when asked about his time so far at Inter.

The 131-capped Copa America winner in 2011 expressed delight at having to play a crucial role in Inter’s defence helping the team moving forward, a change from his time at Madrid where he was the pivotal ball-stopping centre-half leaving the upsurge to others. 

Talking about the change, Godin said, “I start the game on the right and I have to be the first line of passage towards the centre or the lanes. Compared to Atletico, it’s a change, but I think I’m smart enough to adapt to it.” 

The 33-year old Uruguayan is bullish about Inter’s chances and ambitions this season despite admitting that the road to achieving them won’t be an easy one and contends Juventus to still be favourites for the title. 

Speaking on the same Godin told to Marca, “Scudetto? Juve has strengthened again and has a solid base for years, this is an advantage. But Inter is ambitious, we want to fight in all the competitions, but now it is early to talk about these things and we will certainly have to go through difficult times.”

Inter will look to continue their 100% start to the league season when they travel to Sampdoria before resuming their Champions League duties with a tough visit to the Camp Nou to face FC Barcelona.
