    Nicola Berti

    Hi guys!!

    I don't know if you have ever seen this great nerazzurro play before and I've noticed that we don't have a thread for him so I've decided to open one

    Here, set and read some information about this great Nerazzurri player (source:

    Nicola Berti was born in Salsomaggiore Terme, near Parma, on April 14, 1967.
    He was a tough-tackling central midfielder and was a lynchpin in the Inter midfield for most of the 1990's. He began his career as youngster at Parma, and later impressed many teams but was bought by Fiorentina. Some great years in Florence attracted the attention of Inter. Inter brought him in for the 1988-89 season. Also, it was in October of 1988 that he made his Azzurri debut, one of 39 caps with Italy, scoring 3 goals in total.

    He was a protagonist in Inter's scudetto winning campaign that season, playing in 32 games and scoring 7 goals, proving to be one of Italy's best midfielders at the time. He also is credited with being 100% anti-Milan and once said, ""meglio sconfitti che milanisti" (Losses are better than Milanisti). The next season, he played 25 games and scored 5 goals, and was called up to the World Cup squad.

    Once Sacchi took over as Azzurri coach, Berti was a mainstay in the Italian midfield. In 93-94, he was injured the whole year and only made 9 appearances. But Sacchi still brought him to USA '94. He played in every game at the World Cup, but Italy lost to Brazil on penalties. His 95-96 season was also disturbed by injury, so he didn't take part in Euro '96. He continued to be a mainstay with Inter until the 97-98 season, where he only made 4 appearances.

    After that, Inter sold him to Tottenham in England. He played a decent season in the Premier League, scoring some decisive goals and playing hard. After that season, he started to move around. He had a stint in Mexico then he moved to Alaves in Spain, and finally he ended his career trying to promote soccer in Australia, playing for the Northern Spirit. He is now an Inter fan through and through and can be seen watching matches at the San Siro.

    After all of the good things I've heard of him, I thinks it's a wonder he's not in La Grande Inter. Am I wrong?
    "It will be born here, at the "Orologio (Watch)" restaurant, meeting place of artists and it will be always a team of great talent. On this splendid night it's colours will be given: The black and the blue with a golden background of the stars. It will be called Internazionale, because we are brothers of the world."

    He certainly has his own thread (here). You guys just need to learn how to use the search function a little bit better.
