What remains of the Grande Inter

AGI – On June 1, 1967, the by Helenio Herrera with Giuliano Sarti’s duck who condemned her to defeat in Mantua, giving the Scudetto to Juve. A few days earlier the Nerazzurri had been beaten in Lisbon by Celtic in the European Cup final. What remains, 54 years later, of that squadron capable of winning three league titles, two European Cups and as many Intercontinental between 1963 and 1966? With the death of Tarcisio Burgnich there are five players from that formation known by heart from a generation of fans (“Sarti, Burgnich, Facchetti …”) who have left us.

The farewells of Picchi, Sarti, Facchetti and Corso

The first to leave was the captain, Armando Picchi, who died on May 27, 1971, at the age of 36 from a terrible disease. In 2006, a tumor had taken away at the time he was president of Inter and much loved by the Nerazzurri fans. In 2017 the goalkeeper Giuliano Sarti died and just a year ago, on 20 June 2020, he left Mariolino Corso, the “left foot of God”.

The Mazzola flag

Of the others, the one that appears most often in public is , 78, Nerazzurri flag and son of Valentino, captain of the Grande Torino who died in Superga. After his experiences as a manager at Inter in the 90s and then at Turin, he had been a regular presence in Rai as a commentator and now from Monza, where he has lived for half a century, he often gives interviews and statements about the Beneamata.

Suarez and the others

The 86enne Luisito Suarez placeholder image, the only Spanish Golden Ball, is divided between Milan, Barcelona and Madrid: in 1995 he closed his coaching career with a fleeting appearance on the Nerazzurri bench. Of the defense, the Cremonese remains alive Aristide Guarneri, “the gentleman stopper”, 83 years old. Seven years younger is the midfielder Gianfranco Bedin who also won the 1971 Scudetto with Inter.
In attack there are the Brazilian Jair da Costa, the Nerazzurri Freccia, who is 80, and the 79-year-old from Bergamo Angelo Domenghini, the record striker who ended his career by winning his only Italian Cup to Atalanta and his only Scudetto to Cagliari.
