Former Inter striker Antonio Cassano does not believe that Nerazzurri CEO is knowledgeable about football but rather considers him to a be a good club politician.

Speaking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel, as reported by FCInterNews, the former striker gave the view that the current Nerazzurri does not have much of an understanding of the game.

Marotta has been praised for his handling of the Nerazzurri since joining the club from Juventus in 2018, with his track record with signings across his career often having been highlighted.

However, Cassano believes that this aspect of the CEO’s work is overemphasized and that he is instead mostly someone who is good with the public relations side of running the club.

The 39-year-old supports his view with an anecdote from the time he and Marotta were with Sampdoria together towards the end of the 2010s, in which he was not impressed by the current Nerazzurri CEO’s abilities.

“I know Marotta very well,” he stated, “in fact I say that he must say it was thanks to me that he managed to go to At Sampdoria he caused many disasters, but then he made journalists write that he had done well instead.”

He went on, “He is incompetent in football, he does not know the players: he often asked me who the players were who greeted him. Marotta has nothing to do with football, he is just a great football politician. When it comes to me on a human level, I have to go into specifics.”

“You can say everything about me, but not that I don’t have human qualities,” Cassano stated. “On the contrary, he should only thank me – he may still be poisoned since he wanted to sell me to Fiorentina without [former Sampdoria owner Riccardo] Garrone’s knowledge.”

The former striker explained, “I talked to him and I asked him to kick Marotta out at the end of the season. Shortly after that year he left. And if we did well at Sampdoria he owes it to me. I was a phenomenon at football, while he knows how to sell himself well with journalists. If he wants to talk to me do it live.”
