    Ruben Sosa

    He was a freaking legend, his goals carried us and thanks to him we were able to challenge the almighty Capello's Milan.

    He was at Appiano today. He's a true Nerazzurri legend. I still remember an awesome double he scored in a 45 minutes game against Milan, in the summer trophy Giorgio Ghezzi. Awesome.

    Awesome player indeed!

    And if you want to refresh your memories of Sosa, watch Julio & Friends vs. BVB CL-Team 1997 on sunday, 13th at 1800 CET.

    Teams:

    Julio & Friends
    Taffarel, Bebeto, Jorginho, Careca, Dunga, Paulo Sergio, Ailton, Alessandro del Piero, Diego Maradona, Ruben Sosa, Salvatore "Toto" Schillaci, Roger Milla

    Trainer Giovanni Trapattoni

    BVB CL-Team 1997
    Stefan Klos, Jürgen Kohler, Michael Zorc, Stéphane Chapuisat, Paul Lambert, Karlheinz Riedle, Matthias Sammer, Günter Kutowski, Stefan Reuter, Steffen Freund, Knut Reinhardt, Flemming Povlsen, Paulo Sousa

    Trainer Ottmar Hitzfeld
    Peppino Prisco: "La gioia più grande? Scontata. Il Milan in B. E per ben due volte: una... a pagamento e una... gratis. Sono dell 'idea che una retrocessione cancelli almeno cinque scudetti conquistati e che la vittoria di una Mitropa Cup elimini i residui"

    Peppino Prisco: "Io non rubo il campionato, e in Serie B non son mai stato"

    Wow, that game is surely mouth-watering. Those name bring back memories of the good old 90's. I really miss that soccer!

    And thanks for Frisko to clarify one thing for me. A while ago, I thought Ruben Sosa was actually Paulo Sousa (who is in the BVB team of 97.) The latter played with us briefly, but left in bad terms around 98-99.

    I never saw Ruben play, but it was great to hear about him.

    He always had white tape on his socks, you would recognise him instantly, he was quick as phuck and he had superb technique, a gem of a player.

    I actually don't Han but those were terrible times coach-wise (well as always for us!) so I assume it was related to that.

    I can't believe it! I still have that one on tape, I just don't dare put it in the vcr cause it's so old it would probably break it!

    2-0 against Milan, two amazing goals by Ruben on the counter, such a wonderful, soft touch to beat Sebastiano Merda Rossi, yeahhhh!

    here is where Frisko hides the truth because of his love for Moratti.

    Sosa left because of Moratti, Moratti didn't believe in Sosa and signed Bergkamp and he was misued, Bergkamp was played as a centre forward and compeltely wasted and Sosa was left on the bench and rightfully got angry. I think they left in the same year though.

    I actually didn't know that, strange though, Sosa surely proved himself during his time at Inter.

    Just for the record: Bergkamp was signed in 1993, two years before Moratti took over.

    I'm pretty sure Moratti was the one who sold off Sosa and Bergkamp, and I was reading through wikipedia just now and it also says that Moratti had problems with Sosa.

    Moratti had 'problems' with Sosa really doesn't sound right, you might want to double check your sources catanha.
