Walter SAMUEL retires


Walter SAMUEL has called it quits to his career.

A Serie A and Supercoppa Italiana winner with both Roma and Internazionale, add to that a treble with Internazionale and a Copa Libertadores with Boca Juniors, you could say Walter SAMUEL had a pretty good career.

A legend in his own right, not many were able to make it through The Wall. A no non-sense defender, SAMUEL took part in two World Cup’s for Argentina in 2002 and 2010 and was part of the legendary 1997 U20 team which won the World Cup.

SAMUEL played only for the top teams in his career. An impressive resume includes playing at Newell’s Old Boys, Boca Juniors, Roma, Real Madrid, Internazionale and the top team in Switzerland, Basel.

SAMUEL reached the peak of his European club career when he won the treble in 2010 with fellow Argentina team mates Javier ZANETTI, Esteban CAMBIASSO and Diego MILITO. SAMUEL formed one of the strongest CB partnerships with the Brazilian LUCIO, a rock solid duo which must have struck fear into the eyes of any forward.

They truly don’t make them like this anymore. Thank you for a great career, SAMUEL.
