Beppe Marotta is looking forward to Inter playing a role in Juventus’ hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season.

Inter were confirmed as Serie A champions on Sunday and have nothing to play for in their final four games of the season – at least not officially.

The Nerazzurri will visit the Allianz Stadium on the penultimate weekend of the season and that match could be decisive for Juventus’ chances of finishing in the top four.

Speaking to Tuttosport for today’s print edition, Inter’s chief executive Marotta said: “I imagine it’ll be gratifying to return to Turin on 15 May as champions of Italy and decide Juventus’ fate.

“That’s the beauty of sport.”

Marotta was linked last month with an incredible return to Juventus, but it seems he is not intent on leaving Inter anytime soon.

Juventus released Marotta in September 2018 as part of a managerial reshuffle and not everyone remained on good terms with him.

“I can exclude a return to Juventus,” Marotta assured.

“It’s an eventuality I’ve never taken into consideration, nor have I even received any interest from Turin.

“There’s only Inter (for me).

“My experience at Juventus gave me a lot, apart from the bittersweet way in which I left.

“I stayed on good terms with everyone except Fabio Paratici, but that’s a more personal than professional matter.

“I’m a manager who’s used to accepting the decisions of the club I work for and that’s what I did in September 2018, although to be honest I didn’t expect I’d be moved on.”

Marotta became Inter’s chief executive for sport in 2018 and has taken less than three years to help deliver the club’s first Serie A title since 2010.
