Speaking at a sponsorship event, the former Inter President Massimo Moratti spoke about Antonio Conte and the potential sale of Mauro Icardi.
“I am genuinely curious to see Conte’s Inter. I think the quality of the Coach means he can achieve great things here. The fact he had a past at Juventus is irrelevant, this is a professional who was in charge of many teams, including the Nazionale. Of course, this is a big test, because it’s not easy to be the Coach of Inter.”
“Dzeko and Lukaku? They are very good strikers. One is very talented, the other very physical, but I still say Icardi is better than both of them. The Icardi issue is more complicated and delicate than anything I had to deal with during my time in charge. I am not interested in his social media behaviour, as I only judged players on their behaviour in training and on the pitch.”
“Icardi at Juventus? If he should end up at Juventus, then the Bianconeri would become a super squad. Juve start out the season as Scudetto favourites, followed by Napoli and Inter, but the Nerazzurri have created an incredible defence: Samir Handanovic, Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij and Diego Godin represent excellence for the Champions League, too. With Godin, Inter have the strongest defence in Serie A.”
