Legendary former Inter goalkeeper Walter Zenga would still like to take charge of the Nerazzurri at some point in his coaching career.

Speaking to Rome-based newspaper Il Giorno printed in today’s print edition, Zenga spoke of dreaming of one day being on the bench at his former club, though he also acknowledged that it is a significant position which he would have to earn.

Zenga has worked as a manager for over two decades since retiring from playing, and can list the likes of Sampdoria, Crotone, and Wolverhampton Wanderers among the clubs that he’s taken charge of in his career.

However, the 61-year-old has never quite reached the level where he has been given the chance the coach the club which he spent the majority of his playing days with, making over 300 Serie A appearances.

On whether he would like to one day coach the Nerazzurri, Zenga said that “Absolutely yes, even if it is not something that is given to you without merit. You do not just get to take charge of the team automatically because you played there for 22 years. There is a path. It’s about chasing a dream, if I catch it that’s best, if it never happens I had something to believe in.”

He went on, “You always have to chase your dreams, whatever they are. You chase them and do everything to make them come true.”

Zenga stated that he likes the current Inter side, and elaborated, “Compared to last year, Inter have actually lost not two, but three players. Everyone forgets Eriksen, even if the hope is that he can return.”

He went on, “In these circumstances, the important thing is not what happened, but the fact of having to face the problems and find the solutions, it seems to me that so far they have found them.”

And on whether the Nerazzurri could be successful in Europe again he said, “Inter under Mourinho won the treble and won everything for several years. You have to allow for time, physiologically, even to bring certain teams back to certain levels.”
