Legendary former Inter midfielder Esteban Cambiasso feels that it wasn’t immediately clear how he’d fit in at Inter, but that he soon found he could make a difference.

Speaking at an event organized by Inter Club, as reported by the online edition of the Corriere del Mezzogiorno, Cambiaso looked back on his early years at the Nerazzurri.

Cambiaso joined Inter from Real Madrid in the summer of 2004.

The Argentine had already established a strong reputation for himself in the Spanish capital, but it was at Inter that he would really play his best football.

As he noted, Cambiaso did not necessarily join the Nerazzurri during the strongest of periods.

However, the Argentine was part of a big upturn in form, helping the club to multiple Serie A titles, culminating in winning the European Treble in the 2009-10 campaign.

“My time at Inter was some unforgettable years, in which the club was at the centre of the footballing world,” he looked back.

“I had the opportunity to further establish myself and reach great objectives.”

“I arrived in Milan in August 2004 feeling very cautious, the atmosphere around Nerazzurri felt a bit disheartened, because it hadn’t been a great period in terms of results,” he continued.

Cambiasso noted that “I felt very motivated, I couldn’t wait to start.”

“The first thing I did, together with my wife, was go to see the San Siro stadium, the temple of Italian football.”

“That day it was almost like I had a revelation of how I could help the Nerazzurri cause, it was a turning point,” he reflected.
