Inter clinched the treble by beating Bayern Munich by a scoreline of 2-0 in the Champions League final in 2010. The team were obviously emotionally overwhelmed by the triumph, and Pandev gave his recollection of what their celebrations were like.
“After winning the Treble just about everyone was drunk,” Pandev looked back.
“We returned to San Siro at six in the morning, drinking beers on the plane.”
“My son had been born a month beforehand, I stopped by the house to say hi.”
“After that I went with friends to drink wine and champagne and the party continued,” the Macedonian continued.
“It was incredible, we were all euphoric at the brilliant and unexpected goal that we’d all achieved.”
Pandev looked back at his old Inter teammate Wesley Sneijder, stating that “Sneijder is the footballer with the best vision for the game that I’ve ever seen.”
“He gave me two or three goals to score into an empty net,” he said of the Dutchman.
“In 2010 he would have deserved the Ballon d’Or,” Pandev argued about Sneijder.
And of striker Samuel Eto’o, Pandev said that “Before the Madrid final, Samuel said that finals are not played, they’re won, because after all is said and done only the winners are remembered.”
