Legendary former Inter defender Marco Zanetti has been inducted into the Nerazzurri’s club hall of fame, and he feels extremely honoured and grateful.

Speaking to the club’s official site, the 48-year-old gave his thoughts on being recognized as one of the club’s greats by being the second former player inducted after former goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca.

Materazzi spent a decade with Inter, joining from Perugia in 2001 and going on to win every trophy on offer with the club.

The former defender also won the World Cup with Italy during his decorated playing career, but he is especially beloved by Nerazzurri supporters, a feeling that he returns.

Materazzi is glad to have given such a big part of his career to Inter, and it means a lot to him to have his service to the club put him among the all-time legends at the Giuseppe Meazza.

“Being inducted into the Inter Hall of Fame is a dream come true for me. I’m so proud to see my name alongside legends such as Javier, Giacinto and Beppe,” he stated, adding that “They really made history!”

The 48-year-old continued that “I’ve always had a special relationship with the Inter fans. I feel I’ve always set a good example and they’ve done the same with me.”

“The most important thing for the supporters is giving your all for the shirt,” he stated. “I wasn’t born an Interista, but I’ll certainly die an Interista! It’s a privilege and an honour.”

Materazzi stated that “The moment in my career that makes me the proudest is when I became a world champion as an Inter player, as well as being the only player in the club’s history to date to have been a world champion with Italy and with Inter.”
