Former Inter president Massimo Moratti has said that the Nerazzurri struggle in direct clashes ahead of the match against AS Roma, according to a report in the Italian media.

Speaking during an interview with Inter-News.it, Massimo Moratti discussed some of the issues currently affecting Inter and the poor form that they are in heading into the weekend’s clash against AS Roma at San Siro.

He says that the difficulties all stem from the first loss in a big game against Lazio and how that is symptomatic of Inter’s struggles in the big matches against top teams.

“The difficulties first of all derive from the negative result the team got in the first direct clash of this season against Lazio at the Olimpico. This is a team that struggles in direct clashes. Perhaps the team has lost a little bit of confidence for the moment.

“And the absence of Romelu Lukaku is also to be taken into account. All this put together seems to suggest that the coach is responsible, but it is not always the coach who is responsible for the lack of results.”

Many have started to wonder if Simone Inzaghi is close to being sacked if their results do not pick up quickly but Massimo Moratti claims that the club have patience in him.

“I think at Inter they have patience. In general they could risk it but I think that at Inter they don’t have this intention to exonerate him. There is patience. The replacement? It’s not my job to think of a replacement.”

On the match against the Giallorossi, he says that it will be a difficult one for the Nerazzuri.

“I see a difficult match for Inter. And it’s a beautiful match anyway, because Inzaghi’s team is structurally strong, while Roma is surprising. So it will be interesting to see who between the two teams will make it, in short.”
