MILAN – Born in Lagos on 28 October 1984, Obafemi Martins turns 36 today. He arrived in Italy in 2000 and was initially part of Inter’s Primavera side when his Nerazzurri adventure began. He very quickly made the step up to the first team and went on to score 49 goals in 134 appearances between 2002 and 2006, winning the Scudetto, Coppa Italia (x2) and Supercoppa Italiana in the process. Thanks to his performances and wonderful celebrations, he was able to conquer the hearts of the Nerazzurri faithful.
Many happy returns, Oba-Oba Martins!
