Best Five Inter Milan Players Of All Time

Giuseppe Meazza Inter MilanThis is a countdown of the best 50 players ever to wear an Inter Milan jersey.  We first looked at players 41-50 (can be viewed here). We also have covered players 31-40 (can be viewed here), players 21-30 (covered here), players 11-20 (covered here) and players 6-10 (covered here).

5. Mario Corso (1957-1973)
His nickname was “God’s Left Foot”, a reference to his outrageous skill in hitting free kicks. Corso would hit the ball softly, with his instep, and with a tremendous amount of spin. The ball would travel slowly and seemingly innocuously, before turning back towards the goal and landing “like a dead leaf falling from a tree” (as one commentator put it). Another big part of La Grande Inter, he won two European Cups and four Italian league titles.

10. Istvan Nyers (1948-1954)
Born in France of Hungarian parents, Nyers was one of the first globe-trotting superstars (he played in five different leagues), but he made his mark as a prolific centre-forward for Inter, scoring 133 goals in 184 appearances. Small in stature, but phenomenally athletic (his long, flat throw-ins made him a precursor to Rory Delap and he was a tremendous leaper as well), he won two league titles at Inter.

How Will Inter Line-Up Versus Roma?

Inter Milan v RomaThe busiest people in Milan this week are probably the Inter medical staff as they work feverishly to give Stefano Pioli some options for this weekend’s must-win match against Roma.

First the good news. Jeison Murillo was cleared to return to practice yesterday, giving Pioli some options defensively on how to organize his side against Roma. The return of Murillo is important as Murillo will miss the match due to suspension.

Marcelo Brozović and Geoffrey Kondogbia are both serious doubts for the match. Brozović has still not fully recovered from the foot injury he picked up against Juventus while Kondogbia is sick.

30. Virgilio Fossati (1909-1915)
He was the first captain and coach in Inter’s proud history – at the tender of age 20, no less. And, in his very first season, which was also the club’s first, he led them to the Italian title. He was also capped for Italy in the Azzurri’s inaugural game back in 1910 – a 6-2 drubbing of France, in which he scored the second goal. Fossati left the club in 1915 to fight in the First World War and was killed on the battlefield on the Austrian Front.

40. Dejan Stankovic (2004-present)
Football was clearly in his genes – his parents represented the former Yugoslavia – and he was tipped for greatness from a young age. Roberto Mancini, the former Inter coach, with whom he had played at Lazio, took him to the club in January 2004 and he was an instant hit. Blessed with a powerful shot and plenty of creativity, he is a hard-running, box-to-box midfield player, who can also play behind the strikers. He has won three league titles and three domestic cups with Inter.

Fans Perspective: A Big What About Future

Last Tuesday I was in home watching the UEFA Champions League match between Manchester City F.C. and Monaco F.C. it was a wonderful game by the way but that’s is not point, being in front of my TV I saw the incredible level of two teams who plays in a very competitive system and like always Inter Milan came out of my heart and a Big What Question appeared in my mind:

What Inter need to do to reach The UEFA Champions League?

Inter To Head To China This Summer

After spending last summer in USA preseason, it is not a surprise to hear that Inter will head to China this summer, where they will once again participate in the International Champions Cup.

With Chinese owners and a growing fan base in Asia, I would expect that Asia will become a frequent destination for Inter’s preseason tours.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Nerazzurri will face Bayern Munich on July 22nd in Shenzghen and AC Milan on July 29th in Nanjing.

There is also talk of a third tour match, possibly against Inter’s sister club Jiangsu Suning.

We are counting down the top 50 players ever to have worn an Inter shirt. Today we will start with players 41-50.

50. Iván Zamorano (1996-2000)
Nicknamed “Bam Bam”, after The Flintstones character, for his uncompromising, battering-ram style, the former Chile striker was signed from Real Madrid and given the coveted No 9 shirt. A year later, when Ronaldo arrived, he was asked to make way and switch to No 18. He did so, albeit insisting the addition of a “+” sign, turning it into “1+8”, clinging to his favoured number by any means possible. Zamorano’s only trophy with Inter was the UEFA Cup, but he remains a hero for his passion, enthusiasm and intensity on the pitch.

A Fans Perspective On Bologna Victory

Today all the inter lovers had an incredible afternoon when finally Gabigol score his first goal for the Nerazzurri.

Maybe it wasn’t the best game for Stefano Pioli’s side but for sure this thee points means a lot in the race for a Champions League place.

Against Bologna, Danilo D’Ambrosio showed an excellent performance of his current form providing the assistance to Gabigol for the victory and participating in numerous occasions in defense helping Samir Handanovic to keep another clean sheet.

The only bad news comes from the yellow card received for Miranda, meaning that he will miss next weekend’s must-win fixture at home against second place AS Roma.
