Moratti desperate for Inter Milan to win Club World Cup
Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits winning the Club World Cup is a priority. Moratti says all will be forgiven for a difficult first-half of the season under Rafa Benitez should they lift the trophy.
Moratti said: "The other day I gave Inter's season a 6.5. If we win the Club World Cup I will increase it by 3.5 points."
Moratti made no secret of his desire to emulate his father Angelo who presided over Inter when they won the competition in the 1960s.
"Inter were the first Italian team to bring home this trophy and they did so twice in a row.
"I will be sad not to have close to me a few people who gave such a lot to Inter from an emotional and an affectionate point of view and who would have taken this moment as a reward: people like Peppino Prisco and Giacinto Facchetti. But I hope that they will be following us from somewhere and will give us a hand.
"This competition reminds me of what I went through as a child with a lot of joy but also a lot of suffering because games like this are always battles. But they are games worthy of Inter really because they are difficult and take character."
