In an interview with Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, Giorgos Karagounis has reminisced about his spell with Inter in the early to mid 2000s.
“I have many friends in Milan and I remember with pleasure those two years at Inter in which we won an Italian Cup. I had many special moments at Inter and it’s always nice when I get to come back,” he explained.
Karagounis then went on to share his views about the modern day Inter and shared his belief that Inter are not out of the race for the Serie A title quite yet despite trailing first placed Juventus by nine points.
“I liked what Inter showed this year, they have almost always played good and can still fight for the Scudetto. For now it has been a good season.”
The EURO 2004 winner then went on to discuss the deadly strike partnership that Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez have formed with one another this season.
The Belgian and the Argentine have combined for 39 goals between them this term and they have also struck up a close relationship off of the pitch.
“They have shown that they have a good understanding but the whole team has done well and has done a good job.”
Karagounis joined Inter from Greek giants Panathinaikos and made a total of 36 appearances for the Nerazzurri, in which he provided three assists for his teammates. He moved on to Benfica in 2005, returned to Panathinaikos in 2007 until 2012 when he joined Fulham where he would retire two years later.
