MILAN – He wore the Nerazzurri shirt from 1988 to ’92, four unforgettable seasons in which he displayed all his talent as a complete, modern midfielder with a winning mentality: “I’ve always played to win. Our team was exceptional, and we had great heart which I think was the decisive factor.”
His qualities, determination and leadership abilities all propelled him into the Nerazzurri Hall of Fame as he wrote an incredible piece of Inter’s history. To relive it, all you need to do is visit ‘Born Inter’, the Nerazzurri’s new digital project dedicated entirely to our fans which was launched on the Club’s 112th birthday.
He made 153 appearances for the Nerazzurri scoring 53 goals and winning one Scudetto title, one UEFA Cup, one Italian Super Cup and the Ballon d’Or thanks to his triumphs with Inter and Germany: “Without these teams and without these great players you can’t win the Ballon d’Or, it was a trophy for my teammates.”
Today Lothar Matthäus turns 59: best wishes from FC Internazionale Milano and all the Nerazzurri fans worldwide.
