Former Nerazzurri striker Juergen Klinsmann believes Andreas Breheme would be really happy to see Inter Milan clinch the Serie A title against AC Milan.

The former Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich striker spoke to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews.

If there has been one really sad note on this Inter season, it has been the passing of Andreas Breheme.

The former Nerazzurri defender and German international died in February.

Breheme’s passing was very much unexpected. And it led to an outpouring of grief from almost everyone associated with Inter.

Breheme may have only spent four years as an Inter player during his playing days.

But the German never hid the fact that they were the most special to him. And he retained a strong sense of connection to the club until the end of his life.

Breheme was always vocal and passionate in his support of the team.

And this was part of what made the German such a loss, just as much as his exploits on the pitch in an Inter shirt.

Klinsmann: Andreas Breheme “Would Love To See Inter Clinch Title Vs AC Milan”

Brehme was always active on social media on matchdays, as the former defender followed Inter closely season on season.

Big results clearly meant a lot to the German.

Klinsmann was a former teammate and friend of Breheme, with both Inter and Germany. Asked how much this evening’s derby against AC Milan would mean to Brehem, he replied “A great deal.”

“Andi really loved Inter,” the former striker.

“He felt like every win by the team was his own.”

“I’ve said this before, he was like an older brother to me,” Klinsmann said of Breheme.

“He helped me a lot when I first came to Milan. He always thought of others before himself.”

“We always stayed in touch,” Klinsmann added. “Wherever we were in the world.”
