Jose Mourinho’s second and final season at Giuseppe Meazza, he helped Inter make history.
Goalkeeper Julio Cesar
Cesar is the player with the most appearances in the Inter squad that won the treble in the 2009/2010 season. The Brazilian goalkeeper had a great performance in the final. He repeatedly frustrated the strikers on the Bayern Munich side from Thomas Muller to Arjen Robben.
Maicon was the type of full-back that many clubs wished for at that time when he possessed good body, went on the offensive, returned to the defense smoothly and was especially strong at long shots. In the 2009/2010 Champions League semi-final , Maicon left an impression with an important goal in the victory over Barcelona.
Lucio is a reliable stop in the defense of the “Nerazzurri” when possessing very good judgment and duels. With his excellence in the 2009/2010 season, the Brazilian midfielder was named in FIFA’s Team of the Year by FIFA.
Midfielder Walter Samuel
Samuel’s playing style contrasts with Lucio’s. Lucio is calm, while Samuel plays solidly and is seen as a “villain” at Inter. The Argentine midfielder spent nine seasons at Giuseppe Meazza and won five Scudettos.
Left-back Cristian Chivu
The skull fracture does not affect Chivu’s play. The Romanian player many times scored decisive goals for Inter in the 2009/2010 season. The goal from a distance of 30m against Atalanta in April 2010 was Chivu’s unforgettable moment.
Midfielder Javier Zanetti
Zanetti ‘s attitude, manners and trophies prove why he is considered the greatest captain in Inter history . Always diligent and only quietly contributing to the game, but the Argentine player is an indispensable “link” in Jose Mourinho’s squad.
Midfielder Esteban Cambiasso
Cambiasso moved to Inter on loan from Real and this was the best deal of the “Nerazzurri” that year. The Argentine midfielder takes on the role of interception, cleaning for teammates around. Cambiasso’s strength is the ability to choose the position and neutralize the dangerous ball in the last third of the field.
Midfielder Wesley Sneijder
No player provided more assists than the Dutch midfielder in the 2009/2010 Champions League. In the Champions League final that year, Sneijder directly cleared the ground for Diego Milito to open the scoring and win the Best Midfielder in Europe award. More than a month later, he contributed greatly to bringing the Netherlands to the final match of the 2022 World Cup. With what has been achieved in that year, many people believe that Sneijder should be the recipient of the 2010 Ballon d’Or.
Striker Samuel Eto’o
The Cameroon international arrived at Giuseppe Meazza under an exchange agreement between Inter and Barcelona. As soon as he arrived at Inter, Eto’o played very well when he scored 16 goals in his first season with the blue and black striped team. He and Milito created the most fearsome attack in Europe at that time.
Striker Goran Pandev
Eto’o plays as a right striker and Pandev plays on the left. If Eto’o has the power, the sweep, Pandev plays in a mischievous way and stalks the opportunity. The North Macedonian player retreated to take on the assist stage, giving up the main stage to his two teammates in attack.
Striker Diego Milito
Milito was Inter’s hero in the treble season . In the 2009/2010 campaign, the Argentine striker scored 30 goals in all competitions, the most significant of which was a brace against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final. Those two important goals from Milito came about in a special way. The first goal was a beautiful sink finish, knocking out Hans-Jörg Butt. After 35 minutes, the striker born in 1979 had a skillful dribble, before twisting Daniel van Buyten’s ribs and placing his heart in the far corner.
