Inter have wished former vice-president Giuseppe ‘Peppino’ Prisco a happy birthday by posting a very touching tribute to him the club website.
“From 1946, he was first a member, then secretary, then a board member and vice-president of the club. He worked alongside five different presidents for over 50 years with the single objective of “Always and only serving Inter.”
During his career at the club, there were six Scudetto wins, two European Cups, two Intercontinental Cups, three UEFA Cups, two Coppa Italia wins and one Supercoppa Italiana as he became more than just a director, but rather an eternal symbol of all that Inter represents. He was well-loved and admired, also by rivals for his intelligence, trademark wit and inimitable sarcasm.
Today would have been the 97th birthday of Giuseppe Prisco, known to all as Peppino. His memory lives long in the heart of all Interisti.
Happy Birthday, Peppino…and Forza Inter!”
