Inter 110 | Anniversary Gala – Interviews and Hall of Fame winners


Good evening, Mario Riso. We can introduce you as singer, rocker and song-writer but first and foremost I think you want to introduce yourself as… A drummer! A drummer and an Inter fan. Basically I’m an Inter fan on loan to the world of music. It’s nice to pick up this story where we left off and look back over the last 10 years which have seen some very significant and unforgettable events. Forza Inter all the way. Nice one, Inter, 110 years old. As an Inter fan, to be here for the club’s 110th birthday, and as CEO with some legendary stars here tonight, feels very special and fills me with great pride. Tonight has really shown what being a part of Inter is all about. Celebrating such big stars should inspire my players to achieve further success so that they can cement their place in the history of this great club. Playing in goal for Inter was a childhood dream come true because I came through the academy, I went to see the team as a kid and Inter were the only side I wanted to watch. There’s nothing like this feeling. I fell in love with Inter from day one because above all I saw the human side of the club and that’s not something you see every day. This award is worth an awful lot and I think the club will always be like this. I played for Inter for four years – a German, a foreigner. However the four years I spent here were the most exciting I had in my 21-year career. I’ve heard a lot of great Inter figures describing what it’s like to be a part of this club and I share that feeling because when I was here, playing well wasn’t enough on its own. We battled all the other teams and the club’s history must continue. Football is wonderful and it’s been my whole life. Thank you everyone for this award. Thank you very much everyone. I’m very proud to be a part of Inter and I always have been. I feel fortunate and privileged to have been club president. It’s wonderful, it’s something everyone would like to be but it happened to me. However, above all I’m proud to have heard from all of the great stars who won awards, along with the others too, because of the character they have. They’ve shown what Inter’s character is all about. It’s above all a great passion.
