Juan Sebastian Veron: “Inter Were The Best Club For Me To End My European Adventure With”
In an interview with Spanish news outlet AS, Juan Sebastian Veron has reflected on his spell with Inter.
The former Argentine national team midfielder spent two years on loan with Inter between 2004 and 2006 from Premier League side Chelsea.
The 45-year-old, who celebrated his birthday two days ago, the same day Inter celebrated their 112th anniversary, made a total of 74 appearances across all competitions for the club.
He scored four goals and tallied 11 assists during his time at the club and also picked up two trophies, the 2004/05 Coppa Italia and the 2005/06 Serie A title.
“Inter were the best club for me to end my European adventure with,” the former Manchester United man, who is currently president of Superliga Argentina outfit Estudiantes began the interview.
He also went on to sing the praises of former Inter president and owner Massimo Moratti who was at the helm of the club when Verona was there and admitted he was overjoyed for him when Inter won the Champions League in 2009/10.
“Which president did I learn most from? Massimo Moratti. When Inter won the Champions League I was very happy because I knew it was something he wanted to do. He deserved it for the values he had.”
