In a long interview with 7, the Corriere della Sera magazine, the former Nerazzurri goalkeeper talks about himself
The love for Inter, his career and the dream of sitting on the Nerazzurri bench. In a long interview with 7, the Corriere della Sera magazine, Walter Zenga it’s said. “Inter was my childhood dream come true: I’ve always supported Inter, I went to the curve, I was a ball boy at San Siro. And finally, after years in the provinces, I was returning home. Is coaching Inter a dream? It always has been, I’ve done the whole process of the youth team, I’ve worked at the headquarters, now I’m a legend. In life it’s important to chase a big dream, it doesn’t matter if it comes true or not. My satisfaction is that still today on the street Inter fans stop me and it’s as if I had stopped playing last year. And even when someone from another team says unkind things to me, I’m not offended: it means that I left a mark despite the last official match was on May 11, 1994”.
“My luck is that I’ve always had a plan B not to stay at home waiting for a phone call. I’ve done radio, TV. I’m a Mourinhian: wherever I go, I become an ultra of my boys. I’ve had so much from Catania and Palermo I left my soul in Crotone. Then Sampdoria, Venice. Every city gave me something. My father? No, he was a lost Juventus player. When there was Inter-Juve it was a problem: if we lost I got angry, I cried. Even my first son Jacopo is black and white, we are a strange family. But the other four children are on my side.”
