The regional council of Lombardy has decided to award Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta with the “Rosa Comuna” award for his work with the Nerazzurri.

Italian news outlet FCInterNews report that there is a bipartisan consensus within the council to give the award to the veteran executive.

Inter CEO Marotta is a man with a towering reputation for his work in Italian football.

Particularly in the last couple of decades, 66-year-old has been a hugely prominent figure in the game with a track record of success and trophies.

Marotta earned plaudits for his work with Sampdoria in the late-2000s. And then, over almost a decade at Juventus, Marotta turned the Bianconeri back into a juggernaut in Serie A after some stumbles in the wake of the Calciopoli scandal.

In 2018, Marotta left Juventus however. And Inter brought the veteran executive in as their CEO of Sport almost immediately, in December of that same year.

And it would be an understatement to say that Marotta’s time as Nerazzurri CEO has been a success.

Marotta recently announced that he’ll step down as Inter CEO when his current contract expires.

The executive is under contract with the Nerazzurri until the end of June 2027.

And when Marotta goes, he will undoubtedly prove a hard man to replace.

When Marotta took over as Inter CEO, it has been several years since the Nerazzurri had most recently won a trophy.

Since the 66-year-old has been at the helm, the Nerazzurri have won six trophies.

These include the Serie A title, the Coppa Italia twice, and the Supercoppa Italiana on three occasions.

Inter have also reached the Europa League and Champions League final during Marotta’s tenure.

And this season, it looks only a matter of time before the Nerazzurri win the Serie A title a second time with Marotta as CEO.

This would be the tenth league title in Marotta’s career as a whole, following eight with Juventus.

And Marotta has accomplished all of this while working within tight financial restrictions.

Inter’s financial problems are no big secret. And they have forced the club to make big sales like those of Achraf Hakimi, Romelu Lukaku, and Andre Onana.

Coming in the other direction, Inter have not been able to spend big.

Therefore, Marotta’s penchant for free transfers and low-cost signings have proven invaluable.

The Nerazzurri have signed the likes of Hakan Calhanoglu, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Marcus Thuram among others on free transfers.

With Marotta at the helm, Inter’s squad has always had a strong balance. And the 66-year-old has appointed the likes of Antonio Conte and Simone Inzaghi as Nerazzurri coach.

In recognition of this work and how it has returned Lombard giants Inter to the summit of Italian and European football, the regional council has decided to award Marotta with the “Rosa Comuna.”
