In football you have to go for it and Joel Obi knows this well. Today against Cesena he scored his first goal in the Serie A and his first in a Nerarzzurri shirt. “I’m happy with the goal. I finally did it after so many matches, even though it was half an own-goal. I dedicate it to my family and all my friends whom I love and who have always supported me,” he stated to Inter Channel.
There was personal satisfaction for Obi, but also for “the great performance of the whole team, especially because today the result counted. It was important for the standings. Today I also did well in defense, because it was also my task to cover at the back. Gradually we’re getting used to Stramaccioni’s work methods and this is also fundamental. I like my role. I have a lot of freedom, both in attack and in defense.”
