On the 10th of December 1921, Inter’s legendary Director and lawyer, Giuseppe “Peppino” Prisco was born.

Prisco, who has gone down in history as one of the wittiest people to ever be involved in Italian football, has given us many immortal quotes such as “after I shake hands with a Milanista I wash my hands. After I shake hands with a Juventino I count my fingers.” Today on what would have been his 93rd birthday, Inter pay tribute to Peppino Prisco by releasing the following statement on the clubs homepage:

“We’ve all heard of him. Those who knew him personally will smile at the sound of his name. Those who didn’t will sing, “E facci un gol, Peppino Prisco facci un goal…” [Peppino Prisco, give us a goal].

Giuseppe Prisco was a lawyer by trade and an Interista by passion. Wise, competent, fervent. And on the anniversary of his birthday, FC Internazionale would like to remember him and pay tribute to him both as a club official (who won everything) and as a person (who won over everyone).

Many of his one-liners have gone down in history, joining the collective Nerazzurri imagination, being turned into stadium banners and used as amusing little digs.

He said: “I always did everything I could to serve Inter and Inter alone.” Indeed he did that. In his own inimitable way. Thanks for everything, Peppino.”
