Happy birthday, Captain: Inter celebrate with you

August is a time for shooting stars and perhaps thus it was that on
10 August, 39 years ago, one of them landed on earth. Travelling
then from Buenos Aires to Milan and donning Inter colours, he came to
be known by everyone as the Captain. These same colours, which he
wears as he celebrates his 18th birthday at the club today,
tell the story of a boy who became a man, a player who became a
champion, a friend who became a brother. The same colours he wears as
he now stands on the verge of yet another incredible record, the latest
piece in the jigsaw of a legend who has made 799 appearances in a
Nerazzurri shirt.

Very best birthday wishes Javier, from Massimo
Moratti, everyone at Inter and all the Nerazzurri fans. We’ll stand beside you as you write many more pages of your marvellous story.
