El Chino was President Massimo Moratti’s favourite player during his time at San Siro, and became famous for his spectacular goals.

Recoba was a left-footed playmaker, well-known for his prowess from free-kicks, and was briefly the highest-paid player in the world.

After 175 appearances for the Beneamata and 54 goals, Recoba had a brief spell at Torino before returning to his native Uruguay with Danubio and then Nacional.

He won two Scudetti with Inter [the first as part of the Calciopoli scandal], as well as two Coppa Italia and the UEFA Cup.
