When: 2008-2010

Between 2008-2010 Internazionale Milano, under Jose Mourinho, became one of the most dominant clubs in European football. While there was a host of talent on the Nerazzurri during those cup-winning seasons, it was Mario Balotelli who bounced onto the scene and made his presence felt. Balotelli scored 20 goals in 59 league appearances for Inter and in 2008 became the youngest Inter player to score a Champions League goal at just 18 years of age. He would learn under the "Special One," and blossom into one of the hotter strikers in Europe, playing a pivotal role in Inter's back-to-back-to back Serie A titles between 2008-2010. This is the beginning of the man known as Super Mario.
