Inter’s Dumfries has ‘no problem with Theo’ but ‘we won’t go to dinner together’

Inter defender Denzel Dumfries has stressed he has no problem with AC Milan’s Theo Hernandez, but he also has no plans to go to dinner with the Frenchman anytime soon .

Speaking during an interview with Gianluca Di Marzio (via in which he discussed his future with Inter and the Scudetto they just won, he was asked about the last derby between the two Milanese teams.

It was a major event because Inter knew they could win the championship by beating Milan, and that’s what they did. As expected, the game got extremely nasty towards the end and there was a melee that led to Dumfries and Hernandez being sent off for their aggression towards each other.

It wasn’t a moment that any of the players would have been proud of, but Dumfries didn’t seem to have taken it to heart.

“With him, it’s always tough fights but that’s normal in a derby. However, I have no problem with Theo. We each defend the colors of our own club. He loves Milan, I love Inter and it’s always great to face him on the pitch because with him they are real battles. However, I would like to make it clear that I have no hatred towards him,” Dumfries said.

“Of course, I don’t think we’ll ever go to dinner together.” Between Théo and me there is only a sporting rivalry, we respect each other and that’s what counts. I love sport, rivalries and the tension of matches.

He also spoke about the power of the Milan derby as a whole, with the two teams having clashed particularly frequently since his arrival.

“The Milan derby is always a special match. And this kind of duel like the one between Théo and me is in the DNA of these matches, which makes them special,” he said.
