Marotta: “Inter Ready to Face Juventus in Decisive Derby d’Italia”

Inter sporting director Beppe Marotta has praised Simone Inzaghi for his management and coaching tactics as the Nerazzurri continue their fantastic start to the new season, sitting atop the Serie A table and level on points with Real Sociedad in UEFA Champions League Group D.

Guest at the ‘Football management: evolutions and future challenges’ conference at Biccoca University, Marotta spoke about “football as a business instead of being an exclusively sporting phenomenon.”

“It is a pleasure to be here and bear witness to my life experience. I hope that it can be useful for the future of these kids who have the desire to enter the world of football, which has now become a entrepreneurial activity at all levels. Football is no longer an exclusively sporting and social phenomenon, but also a business one.” (via Calciomercato)

He then took stock of the Nerazzurri’s impressive start to the campaign.

“You never stop learning. We are in an extremely interim phase, but the team is behaving very well and the coach, who is very good, is managing the matches excellently.”

The Derby d’Italia awaits next for Inter, as Juventus seek to overtake the Nerazzurri ahead in the Scudetto race when Serie A resumes following the international break.

“The beauty of this championship is the uncertainty. We are ready to face this match with the necessary calm.”

The Bianconeri sit just two points behind the Milan giants after 12 matchdays.
