The former Nerazzurri goalkeeper believes Internazionale Milan is still one of the best teams in the Italian Serie A.

Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar played for Internazionale Milan from 2005 to 2012.

He is not back at Brazil, where he is representing Flamengo at club level.

And even after all these years, the stopper believes his team has one of the best defenses in the world.

“I’m giving back to Inter what Inter gave to me. That is all,” he told Calcio Mercato.

“Yes, that’s right: Inter changed my life. For me, this is a great source of pride. My goal is to help this club: if I can do it, so be it.”

“The Scudetto? Inter is always Inter: they still deserve great respect for their history and for what has been done in the last 15 years,” he added.

“I think the conditions are there, the president is doing a great job. Starting well, you can fight to win the Scudetto immediately and do well in all other competitions.”

The keeper concluded: “The defense? It’s the strongest department, no other team has a defense like that.”

“Godin, De Vrij, Skriniar, Handanovic himself: they are very important names for the team.”
