The heroes of the first Uefa Cup together at dinner: what a party among old glories

Guests of the former president Ernesto Pellegrini, there were sixteen Nerazzurri in the evening to celebrate the historic triumph of 1991. In addition to captain Bergomi, present among others Klinsmann, Baresi, Berti and Serena

Put one evening for dinner, in Ernesto Pellegrini’s villa, to celebrate the first Uefa Cup won by Inter in 1991. A party thirty years later, postponed due to a pandemic, with the hope that the new Inter will also return to celebrate the Scudetto postponed due to AC Milan’s fault.

the presents

And between past and present, everyone wins, starting with the former president, happy and excited when his grandchildren Guglielmo and Ginevra hand out the gold medals to the sixteen players present. And so, here they are parading two by two in alphabetical order: Baresi and Bergomi who remembers with great sensitivity the merits of Trapattoni, Berti and Bianchi, Brehme and Ferri, Fontolan and Mandorlini, Manicone and Morello, Antonio and Massimo Paganin, Pizzi and Stringara , Serena and Klinsmann.

the background

And just when he embraces the German striker, Pellegrini reveals a background to him: “Jurgen you don’t know that at the 1990 World Cup in Italy I saw the Netherlands-Germany in Milan, alongside Berlusconi. There were you Inter fans with Brehme and Matthaeus and the AC Milan fans Gullit, Rijkaard and Van Basten. You won 2-1, you scored the first goal and in the end Berlusconi told me: “I’ll give you fifteen billion for Klinsmann”. But I didn’t give in and I’m happy you stayed at Inter ”. From the bottom someone yells: “The Chinese would have sold it immediately”. Everyone laughs, while Pellegrini still can’t smile when he remembers that scudetto faded for arbitrary wrongdoing and then won by Sampdoria in the same year that Inter won the Uefa cup and for this reason on the gold medals is written “Uefa Cup 1991 and Scudetto moral”.

a look at the present

But it is the only moment of bitterness in an evening in which everyone thinks of today’s Inter, taking advantage of the presence of Riccardo Ferri, the “club manager” of Inter in daily contact with Handanovic and his team-mates. Brehme runs with words as he ran on the pitch. “What the h … is going on? I see all the matches on television in Monaco and my friends make me a bunch like that. The players must wake up ”. And then turning to Marotta: “I’ll wait for you in Germany for the Champions League”. Yes, because there is also the Nerazzurri CEO, sitting next to Pellegrini. A couple who could have worked together, because the journalist of the “Gazzetta” Alberto Zardin had advised him to take that young manager of Varese. Then Pellegrini preferred to choose the more experienced Dal Cin, but the relations between the two remained excellent and the very presence of Marotta gives optimism to Brehme and to all the old Nerazzurri hearts worried about the current ranking. “Look – Marotta tells everyone – that today Inter have the same points they had in the Scudetto year with Conte, and after seven days they scored three more goals and conceded 11 as then, so I am convinced that after the break we will recover ”. The unleashed 6-year-old Guglielmo, wearing a Nerazzurri shirt, listens and smiles into the microphone: “And one day I will become president of Inter, with the money of the Chinese.” Everyone laughs, even her mother Valentina and her grandmother Ivana, who by pure coincidence also celebrates her birthday, with the final wishes of captain Baresi and a great Inter. Unforgettable as such an evening.
