Legendary former Inter defender Andreas Brehme has spoken about his time at Inter, and how playing for the Nerazzurri was the personal highlight of his career.

Speaking to World Football Index, the German defender paints a picture of playing for the Nerazzurri in the late 1980s and early 1990s as highly glamorous and as being the highest level of football at the time.

Brehme’s decorated career includes no shortage of important moments and prominent club, with the German having won the World Cup with his country in 1990 among other iconic moments.

This fact emphasizes how significant it is that the German feels that playing for the Nerazzurri in Serie A, where he won the Scudetto once during the 1988-89 season during a highly competitive period for the league, was the pinnacle.

“Serie A in this time was like the Premier League of today,” Brehme stated, “All the best players went to Italy and the atmosphere and matches were incredible.”

The 60-year-old depicts an atmosphere of grand competition and spectacle which many fans of Italian football are still nostalgic despite the quality still in the league today.

Brehme also speaks of the technical and tactical side of his game having been improved by working with legendary head coach Giovanni Trappatoni while at the Nerazzurri.

“I learned a lot from Trappatoni,” he stated, “and I guess the four years at Inter were the best years of my entire career.”
