Inter have officially launched our women's first team. Regina Baresi, daughter of the legendary Giuseppe, Martina Brustia and Irene Santi talked to Dugout about the challenges awaiting us in the near future. It has been a bright start from the Nerazzurre after winning all five of our first five league games.
Mariano Díaz joined Real Madrid at age 17 and went on to have a prominent youth career with Los Blancos. He made his first-team debut in 2016 against Celta de Vigo at the Santiago Bernabéu. Following a successful stint at Olympique Lyon, Mariano returned to Real Madrid for the 2018-19 season.
Obafemi Martins spent five seasons at Inter, scoring 49 goals in 135 games, and winning four trophies. The Nigerian striker made history in the Champions League, but his trademark somersaults made him famous too.
Paul Ince spent two seasons at Inter where he quickly became a fan favourite, through his dedication and commitment. Ince and Inter boss Roy Hodgson even had some fun with famous Italian comedians of the 1990s - the Gialappa's Band and Aldo, Giovanni and Giacomo.
Mohamed Kallon spent three good seasons at Inter where he nearly won the league and made a Champions League final. He ended up his playing days in China, but not before a stint at FC Kallon. So popular was he in his country, that Freetown club Sierra Fisheries was renamed ‘F.C. Kallon’ in the year 2000. Confusingly, that wasn’t because Kallon had bought the club. He did eventually, but only two years and several negotiations later.
After his record-breaking debut season with Liverpool, Dugout travelled to Mohamed Salah’s childhood home in rural Egypt to speak to the coaches and friends who know him best. They recount the story of how a diminutive boy from Nagrig, a tiny village in the Nile delta, rose to become one of the world’s best footballers.
Wim Jonk managed 54 appearances in two seasons and scored eight goals at Inter, where he famously scored the winner in the second leg of the 1994 Uefa Cup final against Casino Salzburg. He then went on to join PSV Eindhoven, where he spent three seasons.
One-club man Javier Zanetti disembarked in Italy with a low profile in 1995. But the Argentine then went on to build a 19-year career made of 858 appearances and glittered with 16 trophies. Find out more about his story on Dugout!
