Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the club still see the Serie A and Coppa Italia titles as their goals for the season despite a recent dip in form.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published in today’s print edition, the executive stressed that the team are not scaling back their ambitions for the last couple months of the campaign.

Inter won the Supercoppa Italiana in January, whilst they are now out of the Champions League having narrowly lost their knockout tie against Liverpool.

This leaves two major domestic honours to fight for, and the Nerazzurri are well in the hunt for both, part of a tightly-contested Scudetto race and set for a second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final tie against AC Milan next month.

The Nerazzurri are not the firm favourites for the Serie A title that they were just a couple months ago by any means, and getting past the Rossoneri and then winning the final in the Coppa Italia will be a major challenge.

However, for Marotta, there is no reason to stop seeing these as the goals for the end of the season.

“This moment of form doesn’t affect our main objectives,” he said, “the league title and victory in the Coppa Italia remain our aims.”

The executive also spoke about the difficulties in modern football, suggesting that sporting institutions “Must be reformed, starting with the decision-making bodies in which the Lega Serie A has a marginal significance, despite being the driving component.”

Marotta gave the view that “There should be a dedicated ministry for sport,” the better make policy to help teams through this difficult moment.

The executive was also asked about the possibility of bringing striker Romelu Lukaku back to Inter after his blockbuster sale to Chelsea last summer, but he glossed over the matter.
