Legendary former Inter striker Angelo Domenghini has reflected fondly on his time playing for the Nerazzurri.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Bergamonews.it, the 79-year-old gave his account of the “Grande Inter” under legendary head coach Helenio Herrera.

The Nerazzurri were a highly formidable side during the 1960s under Herrera, with the peak of their achievement having been the European Cup win during the 1964-65 season, in which the club also won the Scudetto.

Domenghini also won Serie A with Inter the following season, and he would also go on to lift the Scudetto a third time during his first season after joining Cagliari from the Nerazzurri, in the 1969-70 campaign, and he also won his only Coppa Italia trophy with Atalanta, in 1963.

However, the peak of his career was undoubtedly during his time spent as an Inter player, during which he also won the European Championship with Italy, and he was a part of a truly special Nerazzurri team.

“Helenio Herrera chose me,” Domenghini recalled, “Inter Milan were great in all respect, the club, the coach, the players.”

He continued, “In five years we  won everything, thanks to everyone, from president Moratti to the warehouse workers. Now, on the other hand, there are many trainers, the staff seems to be much more out of proportion, and ridiculous.”
