Former Inter president and owner Massimo Moratti has reflected on Inter’s Champions League final win in the 2009/10 season.

Inter faced off against German giants Bayern Munich at Real Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and won the match 2-0 with thanks to a brace from legendary striker Diego Milito.

“We all did our best to achieve certain goals. It is wonderful that certain images can still make the fans happy today. The treble winning team was made up of extraordinary players,” he started an interview with Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia which was broadcast earlier on today.

“Generally speaking finals are full of incredible tension but instead we wanted to enjoy the party, perhaps because we had suffered so much against Barcelona. Looking back on the game, it was a very difficult one.

“That day I wasn’t upset, I say that sincerely. In those moments there is no time for emotion as you are busy analysing everything and figuring out if you have done something wrong right up to the last minute.

“Fortunately everything was done well. The team dealt with things with exceptional professionalism. The boys made many sacrifices and deserved to to win.”

Moratti bought a controlling stake in Inter from fellow Italian businessman Ernesto Pellegrini back in 1995 and he would be at the helm of the club for 18 years, during which Inter won no shortage of trophies including a historic treble consisting of the Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League.

In 2013 Moratti sold a controlling stake in the club to Indonesian tycoon Erick Thohir and sold the remainder of his stake in the club in the Summer of 2016 when Chinese e-commerce giants Suning came in and bought the club.
