Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has given his thoughts on some key matters headed into next season.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN during the announcement of the Serie A fixture list for next season, reported by FCInter1908, the executive talked about how the club hope to cope with the setback of Achraf Hakimi’s departure.

For Marotta, Hakimi’s departureis a disappointment, but it is not something that the club will be unable to recover from.

The Moroccan was allowed to be sold to Paris Saint-Germain for a substantial fee as the club look to meet important financial targets in the summer, but the CEO believes that the club will do a good job of replacing him on a budget:

“It’s a real puzzle, he’s not an easy player to replace. We’ll have to have to show some creativity, it’s not easy because Hakimi is an excellent player.”

Furthermore, he talked about new head coach Simone Inzaghi, and expressed confidence in the young manager who he believes will be a more than adequate replacement for his predecessor Antonio Conte.

The CEO talked about having worked with Inzaghi before at Sampdoria, and he is of the view that the young manager is ready to coach at a high level:

“I’ve had Inzaghi at Sampdoria and as Materazzi says, with the support and faith of the club Inzaghi has demonstrated his value. I have collected what Lazio have done, from their youth sector to the first team.”
