He played 97 times for Inter Milan and was part of the treble winning team under Jose Mourinho.


Alfred Duncan (2012-14)
The midfielder born in Accra, Ghana spent two unsuccessful years at the clubs senior side. Duncan was trained at Inter Milan and his promotion to the seniors was the progression he could ever get.

At 25 years, the former Ghanaian youth product, currently plays for Sassuolo.

Isaac Donkor (2014-17)
The defender joined Inter's Youth side in 2010/11 from Padova. Donkor got promoted to the Under 19 side in 2012 before he officially joined the senior team in 2014/15. He spent the next 3 seasons going out on loans to Bari, Avellino and Cesena. He finally admitted to not being good enough for the Milan club and joined Cesena permanently in 2017. He managed to wear the Black and Blue jersey on 5 occasions. Donkor, 22, has played for the Ghanaian under 17 and 20 sides on 10 occasions.
