Former Inter defender Fabio Galante recalled how former Inter President Massimo Moratti used to get fired up whenever the Nerazzurri faced off against Juventus.

In an interview with Italian broadcaster DAZN, as reported via FCInterNews the  former Nerazzurri defender recounted that Derby d’Italia was always the most important match because of the challenge that it represented for former Inter President Massimo Moratti.

“The match that Moratti felt the most were the ones against Juventus, AC Milan or the Champions League. The matches against Juventus were always a challenge before it was a squad full of champions.

“There were too many to name for Juventus, but Inter had many champions during that time like Ronaldo, Baggio, Bergomi, and Simeone. They were great matches,” concluded the former defender.

Before joining Inter, Fabio Galante enjoyed a two year stint with Genoa where he collected 85 appearances across all competitions scoring 7 goals in the process.

The former Italian defender joined Inter in 1996 for a reported fee of €4.50 million. During his three year stint, the defender collected 55 appearances across all competitions scoring two goals in the process.

Following his time at Inter, Galante joined Torino on loan in 1999 before signing permanently in June 2000. The defender is most notable for his time at Livorno where he collected 149 appearances across all competitions scoring 5 goals in the process.
