Marotta Weighs In on UCL Final, Lukaku, and Inzaghi

Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta discussed the Champions League final, Simone Inzaghi, and a few transfer market topics in an interview with Radio Anch’Io Lo Sport (via Tuttomercatoweb).

“You have to play to the whistle in every sport. We have great respect and awe for Manchester City, which are colossal for their revenue and technical prowess. However, we are ready to face a strong opponent using our motivation, dedication, and organization. The risk of looking ahead at a crunch match is always present. It’s up to the players, the manager, and the front office to find the right level of concentration in the contests beforehand.”

Marotta was quizzed about Davide Frattesi and Giorgio Scalvini.

“They are very interesting, like other Italian players. Our football has reached very high levels. They are being tracked by big clubs. I don’t deny we laid eyes on them too. Then you have to negotiate and make the numbers work. There’s nothing going on at the moment.”

The exec dished on the resurging Romelu Lukaku.

“The premise is that he loves this team and wants to stay with us. However, he’s on loan, he’ll be back at Chelsea. We don’t know what their plans will be. We are in waiting mode.”

Finally, Marotta spoke about Inzaghi.

“You can’t judge an entire season based on just one game, the final in Istanbul in this case. Reaching it is a source of prestige and pride. He amply deserved it. Our assessment is extremely positive. There was a moment when things weren’t going well, and the debate became more direct, but it was always propositional. He proved to measure up to his role. Everybody inside the club acknowledges his good work.”
