Pippo Inzaghi, the legendary Italian footballer who won two Champions League titles and a World Cup, has revealed his favorite teammates for both club and country in an exclusive interview with FourFourTwo. Inzaghi, who scored 288 goals in his career, was lucky enough to play alongside some of the best players of his generation.
When asked to name his top teammates, Inzaghi had two standout choices: Christian Vieri, who played alongside Inzaghi on the Italian national team, and Kaka, his former teammate at AC Milan. These players, according to Inzaghi, were the best he ever played with.
Speaking about Vieri, Inzaghi said, “We complemented each other well, and it’s a pity we didn’t play together more often. One game that sticks out in my mind was against Wales in Euro 2004 qualifying: we won 4-0 and I scored a hat-trick. I still can’t understand why two strikers like us wouldn’t play regularly together; we were normally forced to alternate, which upset both of us.”
Inzaghi also had high praise for Kaka, with whom he won three major titles in 2007. “When I think of Kaka, I think of those three finals we played and won together in 2007: the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and the UEFA Super Cup against Sevilla. I got five goals in three games, and most of them were assisted by him.”
