MILAN – Inter were at Milan's Marriott Hotel this evening for the annual San Siro Gentlemen Awards, now in its 18th year. The gala evening sees accolades handed out in recognition of sportsmanship, fair play and style, both on and off the pitch.
An awards ceremony for the 'gentlemen of football' couldn't not include Javier Zanetti among the winners. The Nerazzurri skipper was once again named 'Gentleman Inter' and also picked up the 'Gentleman Championship' gong.
Mateo Kovacic walked off with the 'Gentleman Revelation of the Year' prize in his first appearance at the event.
Bedy Moratti was also up on stage to receive the 'A Family for Football Special Award', in collaboration with GLGS-Ussi Lombardia, on behalf of the Moratti family.
The 'Best Inter Goal of the Season' honour, in collaboration with Inter Channel, went to Diego Milito (Juventus v Inter, 3 November 2012). Unable to collect his prize in person, El Principe made an 'appearance' in the form of a video message.
The Gentleman winners were chosen by fans on the Gentleman.it website, on Facebook and for this edition also via the free Premio Fair Play app, as well as through the event's media partners Gazzetta.it and Calciomercato.com.
