Ex-Inter Sporting Director Walter Sabatini: “Don’t Regret Joining Inter But Couldn’t Have Accepted Certain Things”

Former Inter Sporting Director Walter Sabatini doesn’t regret joining the club but feels that part of the reason why his time at the Nerazzurri didn’t work out was that he was not included in the club’s official organizational structure.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN after his current team Salernitana’s 1-1 draw with Bologna, the executive opened up about his time with the Nerazzurri and explained that he accepted a condition not to be part of the organization chart, and that he wouldn’t have in retrospect.

Sabatini, who is currently the Sporting Director at relegation-battlers Salernitana, held a position as technical coordinator at the Nerazzurri and Jiangsu Suning between 2017 and 2018, but it didn’t quite work out for him.

Despite that, he still does not feel that joining the Nerazzurri was a mistake, but rather feels that with hindsight he should have done certain things differently and especially not accepted the condition regarding the organization chart.

“I never said I regret going to Inter,” he said, “it was the crowning glory of a career. I regret how I joined the club. I was asked from inside not to appear in the organization chart, looking back I would not accept that condition.”

“This affected my future activity at the club,” he added, “it was as though I was there but not there at the same time. I often went to Nanjing to follow Jiangsu Suning with Fabio Capello. I didn’t enjoy being at Inter.”

“I don’t want any confusion with the Inter fans,” Sabatini continued, “I would have liked to give much more to Inter, who are a wonderful club and were a dream come true for me.”
