Inter CEO Marotta: “My Juventus Exit? One Door Closed, A Bigger One Opened”

Inter’s recently appointed CEO, Beppe Marotta gave an interview to Italian newspaper Il Secolo XIX where he spoke once again about his exit from Inter’s historic rivals, Juventus.

The former Sampdoria CEO didn’t hide his bitterness about his exit from the Turin club and how it was handled.

“It was time for a change. With me some directors grew who had to, now they take on the responsibility and the club decided on a generational change. I certainly believe that the change could have been handled a little better but I’ll quote Nelson Mandela who once said: I never lose. I either win or learn. In my case one door closed and a bigger one opened.”

The Inter CEO also had a few words to say about the current club captain, Mauro Icardi: “He is a great talent, but a talent that yet has to confirm himself as a champion. He is 25-years-old and has to develop all his skills even daily to grow.”

Marotta was also asked if he thought that there was a possibility that the provincial clubs would be able to return to compete to win trophies again.

“It is a Utopia. Once there was the football of the owners but now it is a business. As such, it is a numbers game now and it says that the numbers of the big sides are unattainable. Genoa and Sampdoria are doing very well at the moment because of their trading of players. For example, the sale of Krzsystof Piatek brought in €40 million to Genoa which almost equates to their entire turnover for a year.”
