    Inter hospital

    No, we did not open up a hospital.

    Just a random thread, to make a list and talk about all the players that spent their time at Inter being injured in the majority of time, or at least been very injury prone.

    Ronaldo- Injured seriously twice, losing around 3 years of football. Most of us probably know the story during his stay here.

    Recoba- He spent most of his career with the Inter physios rather than coaches and teammates. Says a lot

    Kanu- He suffered from a heart condition and we sent him to a hospital in the USA for a whole year I think. After he regained his health, we sold him to Arsenal where he regained his form.

    Fadiga- Similar to Kanu, though this transfer was unjustified, he never had the chance to play for Inter, and didnt do anything in the future either.

    Coco- Exchanged him with Clarence Seedorf, from Milan. At the time it seemed a good choice, but in the long run it proves a major mistake. He was one of Italy's best left backs, but got injured in style and never made it back, not even after two years of therapy.

    We spent a lot of money on those players, still paying their wages, plus their treatments. And I remember in the early 2000's, we always had a large squad, and it was rare if you saw Inter have 20 players available at matchday!

    You have to notice that most probably insurance companies paid their wages unless Inter is totally an amateur club which I find hard to believe considering the money involved in this club's business.

    Patrick Vieira - Need I say more?

    Belozoglu Emre - One of the most unfortunate case for Inter in the last decade. Emre blossomed into one of Serie A's finest midfielder in 02/03 but a change of coach, formation and many injuries in 03/04 robbed Inter of his talent. He never regained his form and was eventually sold to Newcastle.

    People may remember Vieri's incredible 24 goals in 23 matches that year but for me, Emre was the player of the season. Vieri's goalscoring was very inconsistent; 4 against Brescia, 3 against Empoli, some brace against Como, Piacenza and whatnots. But whenever Emre was not on the pitch that season, you can see just how well he made the Nerazzurri midfield tick.

    Boy that Emre would have been the final piece of the puzzle in this midfield.

    Free transfer left footed winger. He seemed to be what our team lacked.

    He came at the time when we already had over 6 left footed players, including Kily Gonzalez and Santiago Solari right?

    He came 2 years before Solari and I think in the same transfer window as Kily...

    lol Ehsan

    We bought Fadiga because he was not that bad in WC 2002 if I'm not wrong, but we got him a season late. I'm sure we bought him before Solari but pretty sure he came in at the same time as Kily.

    Yeah I checked it, and Solari came in 2005, Kily and Fadiga in 2003.
    2003/4 was a bad season for Inter. It was the season I went to my first Inter game and it was the only 'hard' game we won!

    Speaking of which, we could add Dennis Bergkamp in that section as well! The guy was afraid of airplanes and either travelled alone by train etc or just didn't
