MILAN – Happy Birthday to Cristian Chivu! He joined Inter in the summer of 2007 and, over the course of six seasons, made 167 appearances for the Club, scored three goals, won many honours and became a true example of grit and determination.
In his letter to Inter fans, he told his story with the Nerazzurri - from his arrival up to now.
"I really gave it my all for Inter, so much so that I wear marks on my body. It was an unforgettable experience, both inside and out. Maybe the Nerazzurri fans have never seen me under the curva kissing the badge, but they’ve seen my sacrifices, my efforts to recover from injuries, to always make myself useful for the team and my teammates. That’s what I’m trying to teach the Nerazzurri youngsters nowadays: you yourself have to choose your aims, and that striving for excellence has to come from within."
Today, Cristian Chivu, the current coach of the Nerazzurri's Under-18 side, turns 40. From all of us here at FC Internazionale Milano, Happy Birthday!
