Inter Milan president Moratti sees Juventus as title challenger

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti sees Juventus as a bigger threat to their Scudetto next season.

“I think we were strong last season and have kept the basic structure with a few new additions such as Diego Milito and Thiago Motta, so we are even stronger now,” he told Sky Italia. “Milan are facing some big changes, starting from their Coach, as I admire Leonardo a great deal. He’ll adopt different tactics, so we can expect anything from them, both good and bad.

“They could rediscover the hunger they have been lacking in recent years, at least in Serie A. Juve were already a good team last season and have become very competitive with the introduction of Fabio Cannavaro, Felipe Melo and Diego.”

In recent years Roma had been the main challengers to Inter for the title, but last season they failed to finish in the top four and are struggling financially.

“There are few families who are still able to control a football club,” sighed Moratti. “It is a very difficult thing to deal with.

“The Sensi family did very well in the past and this girl [President Rosella] has the tenacity and pride to keep hold of the reins.

“I admire her a great deal and know full well the problems one has to face in making these decisions.”
