Former Inter president and owner has revealed he does not know what the secret behind Inter’s 2009/10 treble winning season was as part of an interview with Italian television programme Domenica Sportiva, late last night.

“I don’t know, otherwise we would have repeated it. I think it was because we all believed and I myself was convinced that success would come sooner or later,” he began the interview.

He was then asked about the respective futures of Inter strikers Lautaro Martinez and Mauro Icardi.

“I think it would be good if Inter could hold on to Lautaro because he has great potential and there is great curiosity to see how he develops and what he will become. He has great talent but I do not know how easy it will be to keep him if the interest from big clubsis true.

“As far as Icardi is concerned, I imagine everything is finished for him at Inter. It comes down to PSG who will decide whether to keep him or sign him then swap him because he is a great player.”

He then went on to rule out the possibility of returning to Inter in some capacity, something that he has been linked with doing several times since departing the club.

“No I do not think about it and I do not have the intention of doing so.”

Next Moratti was asked what he thinks the current Inter side are missing compared to that of the treble winning side.

“The current side is very different to that one but I think it is still a good team. The attack is excellent if Lautaro remains, the defence is excellent and the midfield is good too.”

He then praised Inter for the way they have went about handling the Coronavirus crisis.

“Inter have done very well with regards to Coronavirus. They were the first team to stop their Primavera side playing and protected the first team players from this situation.”

In conclusion Moratti admitted that he was surprised that Juventus defender and captain Giorgio Chiellini blasted former Inter player Mario Balotelli in the way that he recently did.

“I was sad, because I liked Chiellini and I know he’s an intelligent and good lad. The idea of him venting out, I didn’t expect. I’m sorry for a good boy like Balotelli, who is always treated this way.”
