Sassuolo owner Giorgio Squinzi has teased Luciano Spalletti following the Neroverdi’s latest win over Inter but admits that the club are in safe hands with majority shareholders Suning.

Squinzi, a lifelong Milan supporter, revealed in an interview back in May that he commemorates every victory Sassuolo secure over the Nerazzurri by hanging a plaque with the date and result of the match in his office, before joking that he was beginning to run out of space.

Having learned that Inter would face Roberto De Zerbi’s side on the opening weekend of the new season Spalletti joked that his players needed to make life easier for Squinzi by winning at the Mapei Stadium, but once again it was Sassuolo who prevailed.

“Before the match against Inter [on 19 August] Spalletti had told me that I wouldn’t have been able to find some more space in my office for another plaque,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport on Tuesday. “Of course I can…

“We’ve made a good start to the season despite making a lot of changes in the summer. It’s too early to say if De Zerbi will turn out to be another [Eusebio] Di Francesco for us, but I like the brand of football he plays.

“Milan? It was a very strange situation with their Chinese owners right from the start. Inter’s Chinese owners on the other hand are reliable.”
