Inter Milan president Moratti concerned over tricky Marseille draw

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says they won't underestimate Champions League opponents Olympique Marseille.

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says they won't underestimate Champions League opponents Olympique Marseille.

The Nerazzurri were paired with Marseille in the Champions League draw and they are considered among the weaker teams left in the competition.

“I do not consider this a fortunate draw,” insisted President Moratti. “Marseille are a strong side and in any case I’d have said the same even if a very weak outfit had been picked. Don’t forget last year everyone said Schalke 04 were ‘easy’ to beat and they eliminated us.

“So much depends on the form both teams are going through at that moment. We didn’t have a positive experience with Marseille a few years ago, when Didier Drogba was a phenomenon there. Having said all that, I have great faith in our squad.”
