Former Inter winger Ezequiel Schelotto scored only one goal for the Nerazzurri during his brief stint at the club, but it was a memorable one, in the derby against city rivals AC Milan.

The 32-year-old shared his memory of the occasion, stating that “I arrived at the Nerazzurri in the winter transfer window with Stramaccioni in charge and some champions of Mourinho’s treble still remaining. Three weeks later the match against Milan, my whole family was in attendnance to see me, for the first time since I had left Argentina.”

He went on, “The coach put me in the second half on the right wing and, after thirty minutes, I took advantage of a clash between [Milan defender Philippe] Mexes and [Inter striker Rodrigo] Palacio to head a [Inter left-back Yuto] Nagatomo cross and score.”

“Seeing the San Siro full of fans,” Schelotto said. “Moratti looked for me at the end of the match, hugged mein the tunnel and after embracing me said: ‘Do you see this Ezequiel? You have officially written a part of the history of Inter for life’.”
