In an interview published on "Inter.it", Walter Zenga remembers the Uefa Cup Inter-Rome final of 1991 on the eve of tomorrow's challenge: here are the words of the Nerazzurri's flag
DOUBLE PARADE – « What Inter , the Inter. It was a crazy season: we fought a lot in the championship and literally flew into the Cup. Yet with the Rapid Vienna we were about to be eliminated, had it not been for my double parade in the 90th minute … ». A nostalgic moment for Inter fans. Walter Zenga remembers the 1991 team, the year of the first Uefa Cup won by the Nerazzurri. In the double challenge, Inter won 2-0 at the San Siro and lost 1-0 at the Olimpico, winning the trophy.
THAT TENSION – Zenga remembers that double Inter-Roma: « The double final was very hard. They were two loads full of tension, in stadiums full of spectators and expectations. On the first leg we found the goals with Matthäus and Berti , I didn't have to do huge saves. San Siro was crammed, ours was a solid team, with great character. At the Olimpico there were over 70 thousand fans, a really tough climate. But we had such strength and knowledge that even after the Rizzitelli network in the end we broke up. We knew how to handle even the most delicate situations: on the other hand I played with Bergomi and Ferri , with the Germans. I was also well protected, and in fact that goal by Roma was the first one to be in the cup after several matches ».
THE PENALTIES … – The story of Zenga on Inter-Roma continues: « On the first leg Lothar scored from the penalty spot, even if during the week I sat between the poles and challenged Andy Brehme : he threw me ten penalties, five with the right and five with the accident. A phenomenon. But Matthäus was truly incredible. Every so often during the game he would go down to the area and say, "Give me the ball, I'll take care of it." In Rome we played without Serena , injured in the shoulder. I remember the joy in the field and the people waiting for us at the airport when we brought the cup home ».
