Goran Pandev has opened up about his memories of winning the treble with Inter in the 2009-10 season.

Speaking to the print edition of UK football magazine FourFourTwo, the North Macedonian captain talked about the the celebrations of winning the treble, as well as mentioning that he still keeps in contact with other squad members from that season.

Pandev joined Inter from Lazio in the summer of 2009, and while he did not always start that season under manager Jose Mourinho, his 27 appearances in all competitions were extremely impactful in the club’s accomplishments and have made him a fan favourite.

Pandev has since gone on to play for Napoli and Galatasaray, before joining Genoa in 2015, with the 37-year-old still currently with the Ligurian club.

In addition to his accomplishments at club level, Pandev also led the North Macedonian national team into an historic first ever national tournament this summer, and while the team did not win any of their three group stage matches heading to an early elimination from EURO 2020, their qualification process was still impressive.

On the treble with Inter, Pandev had this to say:

“I will never forget what we did at Inter: we really made history, winning the club’s first Champions League in 45 years.”

“When we returned from Madrid, the streets were full of fans and flags. Jose Mourinho was so central to our success, he was like a father.”

“We have a group chat called “Il Triplete” with all of us, and it is always so nice to hear from everyone who was there.”
