Inter board member Marco Tronchetti Provera, who is also president of Pirelli was interviewed in Gazzetta dello Sport about Walter Mazzarri’s arrival at Inter: “You will see, Walter is going to be the 12th person on the pitch.”

“He is a very dedicated coach in the daily life of the team but also during the matches. He will be the twelfth person on the pitch and that’s what Inter need right now.”

On Stramaccioni: “It went very well in the initial phase, then there was a significant incidence of injuries that created great difficulties. Then Inter is a team that is a bit special, where events have a greater dimension, and this requires a lot of experience. Having said that Stramaccioni is an excellent coach who gave everything he could. We wish him great success, it was an important experience for him and for us.”

On the Indonesians possible foray into the board: “What Moratti is doing is good according to me. I’m sure he will be able to balance the objective requirements of the club with his passion. Because if you’re talking about fans, he is the greatest. He has shown that in a fantastic way with a generosity that is rare to find. To him also the emotional bonds count. He does what is most important for Inter.”
