Legendary former Inter defender Marco Materazzi turned 48 yesterday, and fans showed the former defender their love on social media, with plenty remembering to send him their best regards.

The former Nerazzurri man appreciated the sentiment, and in a post on his Twitter account, captioned “Many thanks to you all for your good wishes,” the defender gives a smile to everyone who thought to send him happy birthday message while he is on vacation.

The 48-year-old won every trophy available with Inter, and the World Cup with Italy in 2006.
