Legendary former defender Andreas Brehme feels that his time spent at Inter Milan in the late 1980s and early 1990s was “exceptional.”
The German wrote a letter for the official matchday programme for this evening’s Serie A match against Roma.
Brehme was an Inter player between 1988 and 1992.
The German made a total of 155 appearances for the Nerazzurri during those four seasons at the club. He scored twelve goals in the process.
In terms of trophies., Brehme helped Inter to two major ones.
The former Bayern Munich and Kaiserlautern man played a key role in Inter winning the Serie A title during the 1988-89 campaign, his first at the club.
That title win came in a highly competitive era for Serie A. It also saw the Nerazzurri amass a then-record points total.
And then during the 1990-91 season, Brehme and Inter won the UEFA Cup.
Meanwhile, Brehme also won the 1990 World Cup with Germany during his time as an Inter player.
Andreas Brehme Looks Back On Time At Inter Milan: “Exceptional, Unforgettable Trophies”
Brehme writes that “I spent four exceptional years at Inter.”
“We won a lot,” he goes on. “And personally it was an incredible period in my life.”
“Entering this stadium and always seeing it full of fans gave me incredibly powerful emotions. And as a footballer, that’s fundamentally important.”
Brehme then writes that “There are many moments that I remember with pleasure,”
“The ones that have stuck with me the most are the trophies won,” the German recalls.
“When we won the Scudetto and the UEFA Cup,” he writes, “Those were unforgettable moments.”
Inter overcame Roma in the two-legged 1991 UEFA Cup final.
And Brehme wasn’t the only legendary German player in the Nerazzurri lineup for that match.
Juergen Klinsmann and Lothar Matthaus were also in Inter’s starting eleven as they beat the Giallorossi 2-1 on aggregate.
