MILAN – Gigi Simoni turns 81 today. A great person and a coach whose name brings up unforgettable Nerazzurri memories. He joined the Nerazzurri in 1997 and built his side around El Fenomeno, also known as Ronaldo. When that period is remembered, the many battles Inter had out on the pitch and the Club’s extraordinary 1998 UEFA Cup success immediately spring to mind. In that final in Paris, Zamorano, Zanetti and Ronaldo all got on the scoresheet in a 3-0 win against Lazio.
On behalf of the Nerazzurri family, we would like to wish Gigi Simoni the very best and let him know that he’s in our thoughts. Many happy returns Gigi, and forza! We're by your side!
