Ivan Zamorano's Testimonial Game

Baggio in Zamorano send-off Saturday 25 October, 2003


Former Inter hero Ivan Zamorano has invited Roberto Baggio, Ronaldo and David Beckham to his testimonial game.

The 36-year-old Chilean international has decided to hang up his boots with a star-studded game at the National de Santiago Stadium on December 22.

Among his colleagues at the send-off will be the Divine Ponytail (pictured), former Inter teammates Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos and Javier Zanetti.

Other names mentioned include Raul of Real Madrid, Chelsea duo Juan Sebastian Veron and Hernan Crespo.

"I would also like Diego Armando Maradona to come along," revealed Zamorano, "even if only as a spectator."

The striker, nicknamed Bam Bam for his childhood habit of head butting household objects, was a fan favourite at the San Siro during the late 1990ˇ¦s.

A former Real Madrid forward, he joined Inter in 1996 and entertained the crowds for five seasons before returning to his native South America.


My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...

Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

Apparently, his advisors don't want Maradona to be present. They say it wouldn't be good for Zamorano's image - you know he's an Unicef Ambassador or something like that.
A pretty stupid thing if you ask me. I hate Maradona as a person and wouldn't like to be spotted in pub with him, but playing a football game with Diego Armando Maradona is completely unrefusable.
