Inter CEO Beppe Marotta: “Congratulations To AC Milan But Our Statistics Are Better, No Transfer Market Revolution This Summer”
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta feels satisfied with where the team are even despite having failed to win the Serie A title this season.
Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after the team’s 3-0 win over Sampdoria, the Nerazzurri executive noted that the team have the strongest statistics in Serie A over the past three seasons even if there is only one trophy to show for it, and also cautioned against speculation that a chaotic summer transfer window is in store.
The Nerazzurri will be disappointed to have seen city rivals AC Milan win the title on the last day of the season, even with their win against Sampdoria, which was comfortable in the end.
Marotta gave his congratulations to the Rossoneri, who finished top of the pile with a two-point advantage after a dramatic season which saw both teams as well as Napoli vie for the title right until the end.
“I congratulate Milan and also congratulate Inter on behalf of the whole world,” he said. “And then the fans, who have come through in extraordinary numbers.”
He went on that “I can say with great pride that we’ve had the best statistics over the past three seasons in terms of results, points and trophies.”
“We are a very strong club at every level and we’re sure that we’ll continued to make our fans happy,” he added. “We thank this exceptional group of players, in terms of technical ability as well as their bond as a group, as we saw with the tears at the end of the match. And our extraordinary coach.”
He credited the Rossoneri for their title win, stating that “When you win it means that you’re stronger. I repeat my congratulations to Milan, but analyzing the context of the whole season as well as the three-year period which is significant for us, our statistics are better.”
Looking to the future, Marotta said that “We must act with respect for the sustainability of the club, but also for its competitiveness. We have a desire to do well, the ownership is close with us, so I’m sure that with these ideas in mind and with the support of fans like today, we can still do even better.”
He continued that “We want to be ambitious. The directors must also be responsible, look at the sustainability of the club, though.”
“This has to go hand-in-hand with the desire to build a competitive team in accordance with the wishes of the coach,” he added. “We have excellent directors, Ausilio, Baccin, and Zanetti. They will certainly conduct a very good transfer window.”
Of reported target Paulo Dybala, Marotta said that “We’ll hold a meeting for the whole club at the end of the season. There won’t be a revolution in the team.”
“Any gaps that have emerged should be noted,” he said of the squad, “taking advantage of the opportunities. There are some players available on free transfers who we’ll evaluate.”
