Former Inter striker Samuel Eto’o says he still follows the club he won the treble with and wants the Nerazzurri to start competing for trophies again.
Eto’o was a key player in the side that rewrote Italian football history during the 2009-10 campaign, scoring 16 goals as the Nerazzurri secured an historic treble under Jose Mourinho.
The Senegalese forward won six trophies in his time at San Siro and told Gazzetta.tv how all of the treble-winning squad is keen to see Inter fighting for silverware once more.
“Myself and my ex-teammates have been talking about it in the last few days,” he said.
“We all want Inter to get back to being a team which plays semi-finals all the time, and sometimes a final.
“When you look at Inter’s history and the players they’ve had you understand how important it is to always target victory.
“I’m still following Inter and I’ll be cheering for them to beat Empoli on Sunday.”
Eto’o also looked back on the stunning campaign that culminated in Champions League glory against Bayern Munich in 2010.
“We achieved something extraordinary that night in Madrid,” Eto’o recalled.
“We knew from the start of the season we had a very strong team and a 10/10 group of supporters, as well as a true legend like Massimo Moratti as our president.
“I hope that season doesn’t remain a unique moment in Inter’s history because the club wants to get back to that level.”
Inter can take a small step back towards their past glories tomorrow by securing Champions League football for the second season running with victory over Empoli.
