After what happened yesterday, Icardi being stripped off the armband, the former Inter president Massimo Moratti took the side of the Argentinean striker by qualifying the move as a “useless thing to do”.
“Do I long for Bergomi and Zanetti? I also found a great captain in Icardi,” he told Sport Mediaset.
“He’s always played with enthusiasm, sincerity and professionalism, so I have nothing to say.”
“It’s my fault, it’s his fault, it’s your fault… everything’s been made public, everything’s been put out in the open and that a isn’t good thing.”
“It seems like a useless thing to do midway through the season. I don’t know what advantages it can bring, given they can’t sell him and have objectives to achieve.”
“It’s a situation that takes the player away from the club and the club away from the player.”
“What would I do? I don’t know the conditions so I don’t understand the reasons why the decision was made.”
“There will be reasons and internal strategies, but I can’t get into them.”
A clear disapproval from the the chairman who brought Inter the historical treble.
Is Moratti right or is he just the type to avoid conflict?
