Interviewed by La Gazzetta dello Sport, El Capitano gave his ideal XI of teammates.
Naturally, members of the 2010 Treble-winning campaign are dominant, but there’s also room for previous captain Beppe Bergomi in defence and Roberto Carlos, who wore the Nerazzurri jersey for just one season.
Zanetti even generously handed the right-back role to Douglas Maicon so he could play in midfield, which he did in later years.
Javier Zanetti’s Ideal Inter: Julio Cesar; Maicon, Bergomi, Samuel, Roberto Carlos; Zanetti, Cambiasso; Ronaldo, Baggio, Eto’o; Milito
