Inter Milan coach Mazzarri blasts Fiorentina rival Montella over wage bill claims

Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri hit out at Fiorentina counterpart Vincenzo Montella before their 1-1 draw yesterday.

Mazzarri went into the game blasting Montella for questioning Inter's wage bill.

"Perhaps Montella was wound up and just wanted to make himself look calm. I said Fiorentina are one of the Scudetto contenders after the game, so how is that not a compliment? I mention other Coaches after a match, not beforehand in a Press conference.

"In the last two years Inter have dropped their wage bill from €180m to €80m, which is the opposite of what clubs like Fiorentina are doing. That has to be mentioned if we're analysing the mathematics of who is pushing for what.

"Montella was wrong, then he just kept on going as well... Nobody talked about Fiorentina. I'd have more to say to Montella too, but I'm not going to do it here."
