Sad news to wake up to this morning

:(

Certainly one of Inter's best ever players. Free kicks, assists, shots...

Inter legend Corso dies
Football Italia
42 Minutes Ago

Mario Corso, a key member of Helenio Herrera’s ‘Grande Inter’ side, has died at the age of 78.

“Mario Corso, an eternal champion with infinite class, has died,” said Inter in a statement.

“With his left foot, he enchanted the world in a team that marked an era. All our thoughts and affection go to his family at this difficult time.”

‘Mariolino’ spent the majority of his playing career with the Nerazzurri, playing 509 times for the club between 1957 and 1973.
He was the left winger in Herrera’s legendary team, winning four Scudetti, two European Cups and two Intercontinental Cups.

Although he picked up just 23 caps for Italy, failing to represent them at any major tournaments, he was nicknamed ‘God’s Left Foot’ for his free-kick and crossing ability.

Such was his quality, Football Italia recently named him in its all-time greatest Inter XI.

MILAN - At a San Siro without supporters, the players lined up around the centre-circle for a moment of reflection. Before returning to Serie A action, Inter and Sampdoria paid tribute to Mario Corso who passed away on Saturday and all of the victims of Covid-19.

“There are some people who are simply destined to go down in history, eternal champions and unique talents whom you simply can’t help but adore. Farewell Mario, we’ll miss everything about you,” read the touching message on the big screens at San Siro during the moment’s silence ahead of kick-off. Inter also took to the pitch wearing black armbands in memory of one of the Club’s greatest-ever legends.

Curiously, Gigi Simoni and Mario Corso played together at Genoa in 73-74 (Genoa were relegated that season from Serie A to Serie B)

In 75-76, Gigi Simoni coached Genoa and took them up to A, while Corso was still playing.


Intriguing.
