MILAN - Ten seasons with the Nerazzurri , a No.23 who played with determination and pride, dedication and willpower. Marco Materazzi at the centre of the defence, Marco Materazzi on the penalty spot when it counted, Marco Materazzi taking to the air for headers and overhead kicks.
276 games, 20 goals, 15 trophies: five league titles, four Coppa Italias, four Italian Super Cups, a Club World Cup and a Champions League. That unforgettable double for our 15th league title at Siena. In many other battles he was always in the thick of it and helped us climb all the way to the top of the world.
Marco Materazzi, Matrix, is 48 today. Best wishes to him from everyone at Inter!
