Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has been suspended for three months over transfer irregularities.
The Nerazzurri President was handed the three-month ban and fined â‚¬45,000 after the FIGC Disciplinary Commission ruled that negotiations for Thiago Motta and Diego Milito last summer were irregular.
This is because they were led by Genoa President Enrico Preziosi, who was suspended due to an earlier punishment. Preziosi has now been banned for a further six months.
â€śI have a lot of respect for the judges, but very little for the Federation,â€ť slammed Moratti in Tuttosport newspaper.
â€śMourinho was right when he said theyâ€™d make Inter pay one way or another. He left; unfortunately I cannot do the same.
â€śDuring the inquiry our defence was not taken remotely into consideration.
â€śIn any case, this sentence is just the latest chapter in a hostile attitude towards Inter. I do not feel remotely guilty of anything.â€ť
