Inter beat Palermo 3-1 in the Coppa Italia final and they got a special two for one deal for their troubles. In addition to the usual TIM Cup, the winning side also received a special trophy commemorating the 150th anniversary of Italy's unification.
The weird part? With Javier Zanetti busy with the main trophy, Marco Materazzi got to hoist the anniversary cup. Even though Materazzi didn't play in the match, only made one Coppa Italia appearance this season and 10 appearances for Inter in total. But he is the senior Italian player/mascot in the squad.
After winning the treble last season and losing to their city rivals in Serie A this season, this must soften the blow a bit. And Jose Mourinho will probably take the credit. Both for the trophy and the unification of Italy.
