Our Inter Milan Fan Site had the highlights of Inter President Massimo Moratti’s speech at a seminar today for sports journalists entitled “Il calcio e chi lo racconta” (“Football and those who report it”). In his remarks Moratti once again touched on Calciopoli and the impact it had on Inter.
“The fact that Inter started winning once Calciopoli was over just shows how much of a con the whole thing was for Italian football – it’s further proof of what was going on.” Massimo Moratti spoke once more about Calciopoli during his speech at a seminar for sports journalists entitled “Il calcio e chi lo racconta” (“Football and those who report it”) that is currently taking place at the Coverciano Centre, the headquarters of the Italian F.A.’s ‘Technical Sector’. It was frustrating when people said I was spending money without ever winning anything,” continued the Inter president. “Calciopoli really was obscene, besides being a con financially speaking.”
Calciopoli refers to the 2006 Italian football scandal which involved Italy’s top teams including Juventus, Inter, AC Milan, Fiorentina, Lazio, and Reggina. The teams were accused of rigging games by selecting favourable referees.
