Former Inter President Massimo Moratti has given his thoughts on some current matters around his former club now that the new season is underway.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster Radio Kiss Kiss, as reported by FCInterNews, the former President spoke about how the team is doing, and specifically named Napoli captain who he would like to see the Nerazzurri bring in.

Insigne is a player who the Nerazzurri reportedly chased during the summer, with the 30-year-old out of contract with the Partenopei next summer and extension talks thought to have stalled.

For Moratti, he is the kind of player who Inter should be targeting, to add an extra level of quality to the squad and to elevate the entire team to performing in line with their ambitions and reputation.

The former Nerazzurri President began with words on his friend and former Inter head coach Jose Mourinho, now in charge of Serie A rivals Roma.

“I follow the league with great attention,” he said. “Mourinho has revived the competition, he started very well.

“Serie A has one more team, Roma, who will aim for the title. Someone like Mourinho is not aiming for third place. Jose will never say it, but he is there.”

On Inter manager Simone Inzaghi, he stated that “Inzaghi, with patience and intelligence, has found functional players for the beautiful football we are seeing. The signing of Correa testifies to this.”

Moratti also praised Napoli boss Luciano Spalletti, another Inter manager, stating that “Spalletti is very good and Napoli have top-class players, Insigne above all.

“I think the Azzurri will be able to fight for the title. The season will be fun, beautiful and exciting.”

Of Insigne in particular he stated, “I’d like to see Insigne in an Inter shirt. I would have liked him, he would have done well, I’m sure of it. Lorenzo is an excellent player.”

Next, Moratti spoke about the InterSpac initiative to bring fan ownership to the Nerazzurri by allowing for the public shareholding of the club.

“Popular share ownership? I don’t know if it will be possible to manage,” he stated, “but I believe that the future of Inter will be based on passion.

“And the public share ownership movement shows passion. It will go step by step, at the moment it is already important to present. Me? No, I’ve had my time.”

Lastly he spoke about comparisons between legendary former Inter forward Ronaldo, and the recently-departed Juventus player Cristiano Ronaldo.

“In Italy we saw Ronaldo and Cristiano Ronaldo,” he stated. “They are different players, but Ronaldo is among the strongest 4-5 in football history.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has built himself up well, he has merit, he did well, but he doesn’t have the talent of Ronaldo. The Brazilian was a real privilege to see.”
