In an interview with Pirelli, Inter’s main shirt sponsor, Cristiano Biraghi has spoken on his love for Inter among a range of other topics.
Biraghi is a product of Inter’s youth academy and following a few loan moves, he left the club permanently in 2016 as he moved to Pescara. He returned to his boyhood club this past Summer when he joined on loan from Fiorentina.
He started by discussing how he got into football and when he started to play football.
“It’s some kind of genetic fingerprint that my dad passed to me. We watched many matches together with Inter Milan always in our hearts. Everyone in the family supported Inter Milan.
“When I was a kid in Brianza, I played in Carugate. Then I moved on to Atalanta and immediately afterwards to the Inter Milan junior teams. For me, it was a dream come true.”
“My idol has always been Ronaldo ‘El Fenomeno.’ I think he was the strongest player in the world and what is more he was playing on my team. It was the best for a fan.”
Next he went on to discuss his favourite player when he was growing up.
He then went on to reveal that he used to go to Inter’s training ground as a youngster to meet his idols and obtain their signatures.
“After training, at Pinetina, I would stand outside the locker room and wait for the champions to arrive. I have Cauet’s, Djorkaeff’s and Zanetti’s [autographs].”
The wing back was then asked if he has ever followed Inter away from home as a fan.
“Yes, I loved it. There was a strong sense of belonging. I still remember a wonderful trip to Florence which ended with a win for us.”
In conclusion he was asked what Inter game during his lifetime has stuck with him most.
“I was 18 years old and Mourinho’s Inter Milan was playing the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in Madrid. I will never forget the thrill of Milito’s two goals and the exultation at the end of the game. Winning the Champions League is the greatest satisfaction for a fan.”
