Robin Gosens celebrated finally making his Inter debut, although the Coppa Italia semi-final with Milan ended 0-0. ‘It is very satisfying to be back on the pitch.’
The former Atalanta winger made the move in January, but arrived already carrying an injury that had practically ruled him out for the entire season so far.
“It is very satisfying to be back on the pitch after this nasty injury, as I was out for almost five months,” Gosens told Inter TV.
He came off the bench as a late substitute at San Siro, replacing Ivan Perisic on the left flank.

The goalless draw means Milan could qualify for the Coppa Italia Final with a score draw in the second leg, as they would be the ‘away’ team in that fixture.
“It is a tough test, but we can have our say in the second leg. Milan press high and we should’ve made more of the spaces, but this is a squad that has played a lot and fatigue is inevitable.”
Gosens had not played since Atalanta’s 1-0 Champions League victory over Young Boys on September 29, as he tore a muscle in his thigh, also suffering a relapse just as he was about to make his comeback.
