Former Inter midfielder Mariano Nicolas Gonzalez has recalled his brief stint with the club in an interview with FCInterNews.it.

“It was an exciting time and one of the best years of my career. I thought I would only play a little but I took to the field in all competitions. I was part of a great team with many important players in world football and was a Serie A champion with the club,” he said.

He then recalled the feeling when he was told he could join Inter.

“It was incredible, it was more than a dream for me. I was able to share the field with some of my Argentine compatriots and play with footballers that I always idolised. It all seemed like a movie to me. I was welcomed well and everyone helped me with things, President Moratti and Roberto Mancini included.”

Next he revealed that the club were targeting to conquer every competition they were in during the season he was with the club.

“Were we trying to silence everyone after Calciopoli? No. We were wanting to only win the title. It was a team of winning players. Our perpetual message was to fight to be champions in all the competitions we took part in.”

Gonzalez then spoke on former Esteban Cambiasso, who has been tipped as a possible replacement should Luciano Spalletti get the sack.

“I have always imagined Cambiasso as a coach. I also think he should have a chance at Inter but it’s not for me to decide whether Spalletti should continue at the Nerazzurri or not.

He then spoke on a potential striking partnership between Mauro Icardi and Lautaro Martinez.

“For sure they can be. We must not forget that they are still young and need time to learn some things though.”

He concluded the interview with a message for the Inter fans.

It was a very happy time in my life and for that I thank the Inter fans and the whole Beneamata family from Moratti to Mancini, to my former teammates.”
