    Inter’s three Germans

    Inter’s three Germans

    Jimbo, James Horncastle and special guest Rafa Honigstein examine the three legendary Germans who made Inter record-breakers at the turn of the 90s.

    Lothar Matthaus, Jurgen Klinsmann and Andreas Brehme were an integral part of West Germany’s World Cup winning side in 1990. They would all join forces at San Siro, with Matthaus and Brehme contributing to an Inter title win achieved with a record points total, and Klinsmann helping to capture the UEFA Cup too.

    We look at a trio that helped define a time when Serie A was the true superpower of European football.

    Ravanelli!

    Ravanelli!

    Jimbo welcomes back James Horncastle and Gab Marcotti to discuss one of the most recognisable names and haircuts in Italian football history – Fabrizio Ravanelli.

    The man who said he was born to be a bricklayer was on the scoresheet the last time Juventus won the Champions League. A silver fox with one of the most imitated goal celebrations of all time, we examine whether his legend was rather more modest than we remember. And how exactly did he end up at Middlesbrough? And Dundee?

    RUNNING ORDER: 
     
    • PART 1a: The man made by Football Italia? (02m 00s)
    • PART 1b: The Ravanelli story starts in Perugia (06m 00s) 
    • PART 1c: The silver fox signs for Juve (13m 30s)
    • PART 1d: Champions League glory in 96 (26m 30s) 
    • PART 2a: Ravanelli at Middlesbrough (31m 00s)
    • PART 2b: Ravanelli returns to Italy, via Marseille (42m 30s)
    • PART 2c: Derby, Dundee and management (45m 30s)

    Ruud Gullit, Frank Rijkaard and Marco Van Basten were so good, they made up the entire podium for the 1988 Ballon D’Or.

    Part one of this two-part special also includes Ruud’s reggae band and a heated debate over the best goal ever.
