claiming a major trophy in his maiden season as head coach.
The former defender led Inter
Milan’s U-14 youth team to the Memorial Graziano Peretti trophy and the manager
looked really delighted at his recent success.
always had a knack for developing young players, which was very clear for all
to see during his playing days at the Nerazzurri and he is really excited at
leading “such a wonderful young team” to their first trophy success.
On the 29th of
August, the tournament got underway, with Inter Milan competing for the highly
coveted trophy with other European counterparts.
The Nerazzurri made it all the
way to the final of the tournament, facing off rivals Torino, with Inter Milan
scoring the only goal in what was a tightly contested affair in Turin.

Chivu’s team defeated a host of top teams including Venezia, Atalanta and FC
Barcelona. They suffered only a single defeat throughout the course of the
tournament, coming in the last group stage match against Cittadella.

effect on the team, as they had already secured their passage to the knockout
phases prior to kickoff.

not ready to sit on his recent trophy success and will be gunning for more
accolades in the future.

Chivu all the best in his coaching career and see where his new journey will
eventually lead him to.
