In an interview with Radio Anch’io on Radio Uno, Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta spoke on a range of Inter related topics, firstly how he has settled in.

“I had some difficulty coming here, like it always happens when I switch from one club to another. Above all, I can guarantee experience.

“As a club, we have the mitigation of having had a few owners in the space of a few years. Ironically it’s easier to succeed in the Champions League than Serie A, although we don’t have control over everything yet.

“The power of Juventus is indisputable and this guarantees national dominance for a few more years.  The Bianconeri are a model of reference, not only on the field.”

He then spoke on Mauro Icardi’s future with the club and the chances of him leaving.

“It is difficult to give a percentage in football. Mauro Icardi is a resource and an important asset of Inter, as well as being one of the best strikers around. We’ve managed a situation that is part of the dynamics of football, although the dressing room is united and we’re all focused on our objective.”

A swap deal involving Icardi and Juventus’ Paulo Dybala has been mentioned in the media and Marotta had his say on the matter.

“I underline the value of Icardi, I also say that Dybala, although in a process of temporary involution, is objectively very strong.”

Marotta proceeded to speak on the Summer transfer window.

“The club’s desire is to improve year after year. We want to prop up the squad with players who have a winning mentality.

“We’re negotiating with Godin, someone who has these characteristics. I repeat, the Zhang family wants to do well, despite the boundaries of Financial Fair Play.”

The future of manager Luciano Spalletti has been strongly discussed in the media and Marotta commented on this and the Antonio Conte rumours.

“Luciano Spalletti is our Coach on full merit. He has another two years on his contract and Inter are hitting their goals. The Coach is also certainly not at the beginning in this profession. We need to place our faith in him because he’s achieving the results that we expected of him.

“The Conte rumours stem from the facts that he is unattached and has a winning profile. It’s normal for him to be linked with big clubs.”

Marotta also spoke on the stadium situation.

“It’s an important situation because it’s a fundamental asset and because it has value on both a commercial level and as a sense of belonging. It must be a place where you can experience the passion on a daily basis. The stadium revenue is also an important element.”

He concluded by speaking about VAR.

“The technology is looking to eliminate errors, not to resolve all of them. The great difficulty is on handballs, where there is too much subjectivity.”
