Legendary former Inter Milan President Massimo Moratti feels Simone Inzaghi is a top coach.

The former President spoke to Italian broadcaster Radio 24, via FCInterNews. He also said that he’d have liked to have worked with current Inter CEO Beppe Marotta.

A lot has changed at Inter since Moratti was President.

The Nerazzurri have certainly underwent a turbulent period in the decade or so since the iconic former President stepped down.

There have been some difficulties as the club have transitioned away from the Moratti days. That’s putting it mildly.

But recent years have been positive ones.

Even though the financial situation at Inter has caused plenty of problems, the Nerazzurri have won a Serie A title, and are on the verge of winning another.

Moreover, Inter have also won two Coppa Italia and three Supercoppa Italiana trophies.

And on top of that, the Nerazzurri have also reached Europa Legaue and Champions League finals.

Moratti: Inzaghi A Top Coach, Would’ve Liked To Work With Marotta

The man who has masterminded Inter’s strategy behind the scenes in recent years has been CEO Marotta.

And the coach who has taken the team to their current heights is 48-year-old former Lazio boss Simone Inzaghi.

Moratti compared Inzaghi’s style of leadership to that of Jose Mourinho, who won Inter the Treble while he was President.

“They’re the opposite!” he said with a laugh.

“But in any event, his methods are great. Because everyone has to do everything based on their own character, and Inzaghi has done his job very well.”

“It’s fantastic to see how he manages the group,” Moratti said of Inzaghi.

“How he’s managed to make sure that so many players of different nationalities and backgrounds get along together.”

“They’re happy, they share the same goal, and they have good camaraderie,” he said of the Nerazzurri.

“This puts Inzaghi in a position to be an excellent coach.”

And as far as whether he’d like to have worked with Marotta, Moratti replied “Certainly.”

“Then, I also have to say that I got along very well with [former Inter Sporting Director Marco] Branca, so I can’t make any comparisons.”

“However, I’m sure I would have gotten along well with Marotta as well.”

“He’s a kind person, and extremely skilled at what he does,” he said of the current Inter CEO. “He’s done as well for a football club as you can do.”
