In an interview with Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset earlier on today, former Inter goalkeeper Francesco Toldo has spoken on a range of topics.

The former Italian national team shot-stopper began the interview by discussing whether he misses playing and if he may return to the football world in the future.

“I don’t miss it, that phase has passed for me. I was also a coach, but I don’t feel like returning to the same life as before. For the future, the only door I leave open is to train children,” he explained. 

Toldo proceeded to discuss what it was like to be able to play alongside and against the legendary Il Fenomeno Ronaldo, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.

“He is one of the strongest players I’ve ever seen. He had unique characteristics. He was very fast, he let himself get the ball and he went past the defenders as if they were skittles. He always stole time in front of the goalkeeper, speed was one of his prerogatives.”

Next he shared what the best memory of Inter’s treble winning team in the 2009/10 season he has.

“The final party after winning the Champions League. Inter had been looking to win it again for many years and it arrived together with many other trophies that year. It was an unforgettable season.” 

In conclusion, he was asked about the possible departure of Lautaro Martinez, who continues to be linked with a Summer transfer window switch to Barcelona.

“I think Inter keep the best, they always have. The club is very solid, I believe they will strengthen the team. If a transfer arrives, they will know what to do with it.”

Toldo spent nine years on Inter’s books between 2001 and 2010. He made a total of 233 appearances across all competitions for the club, in which he kept a total of 95 clean sheets.
