Recently Andy Brehme was mentioned in a post and by searching around the LGI thread i couldn't find anything on him. I am surprised he has not had a mention for LGI so i thought i'd put this together as i think he certainly does deserve recognition in this thread.
In the time that i have loved Inter i don't think there has been a left sided defender/wing back quite like Brehme. We have had some come and go since Andy but his playing style, effort and contribution to our team was exceptional. Brehme's contribution to the 88/89 scudetto was as influential as his compatriot Lothar Matthaus. When i was a teenager, my room had posters of him
What made Brehme such a classy defender was his ability to get forward and create opportunities, countless assists and score some memorable goals. His ability to read the game and get into positions moving forward was pure class. He was ambidextrous and although he was a natural left footer, he always took penalties with his right foot. Why he did that i am not entirely sure, but i've always been given the impression that generally left foot penalty kicks have failed more often than with the right foot ( if anyone can prove this statistically ...... Vito ? ...... that would be great ).
