Inter CEO Beppe Marotta stopped by Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia, moments before kick-off in the Serie A fixture at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in Milano’s San Siro district, where the Nerazzurri host Roma.
The former Juventus CEO underlined that tonight’s clash is not decisive for who qualifies for next season’s Champions League.
“Tonight is not a matchpoint, there are many teams that still have the chance to qualify for the Champions League. For us it is important to give a great performance, I am very confident.”
Marotta was asked about how important qualifying for the Champions League is for the economic future of the club in terms of signing new players, to which Marotta agreed that it is very important but underlined that it is also where Inter should be.
“We have to qualify for the Champions League first and foremost due to Inter’s history, the rest we will plan calmly. This is a consideration to be made above all from a sporting point of view.”
