The 35 year old arrived at Inter on loan from the capital club as a replacement for the departed Andrea Ranocchia which left a void in the squad.

He has proved to be more than just a squad player since arriving with twenty appearances in Serie A including some good performances at the heart of the defence.

The left footed centre half has displaced Dutchman Stefan DeVrij as the starting centre back for Simone Inzaghi and hopes that his loan move would be made permanent.

“The hope is to stay at Inter, the hope is there. These are two important months, I’m trying to do my best and what will happen, I don’t even know what will happen on August 31st. I feel great at Inter, but it’s not up to me: if it were up to me I’d stay here without any problems. But I don’t want to rush and the management knows it.” He told DAZN as relayed by GDS.

Inter retain an option to make the move permanent but are willing to enter a new negotiation with his or ent club so as to beat down the initial asking price of about €4m.


Acerbi was brought to Inter on the request of head coach Simone Inzaghi following their time together at Lazio.

The veteran has not disappointed his coach as he has slotted seamlessly into the team. 

Asked about his relationship with the gaffer, he explained he is not the player that glues the coach but one who maintains a healthy and working relationship.

“I’m not the type of footballer who binds to the coach. The coach is the coach, period. I greet him, I appreciate him because he wanted me at Lazio and Inter. I’ve always given what I’ve received. But if I suck, it’s right that he doesn’t let me play. I do everything to be able to play but the coach has to make his own choices and you have to respect them.”

He refused to be drawn on the controversy that marred the derby d’Italia and affirmed Juventus deservedly took the maximum points.

“He was spoiled by his hand, but they (Juventus) interpreted the game better. They deservedly won. Maybe I’m convinced they never scored goals, however they were more convincing and balanced on the pitch. We need to learn from mistakes. This episode can be a stimulus for the semi-final of the Coppa Italia.”
