Legendary former Nerazzurri President Massimo Moratti feels that Inter Milan must avoid the mistakes of last season’s Napoli.

The former President spoke to Milan-based newspaper Il Giornale in an interview published in today’s print edition, via FCInterNews.

Last season, Napoli were the dominant force in Serie A.

The Partenopei ended the campaign with a massive gap between themselves and the rest of the league table.

That was the result of a run in which Luciano Spalletti’s team looked to be close to unstoppable.

It was virtually a foregone conclusion that Napoli would clinch the title as early as the spring. Just as much as was the case with Inter this season.

But once Napoli did clinch it, there seemed to be a bit of a change of mood.

The Partenopei’s form was not quite as relentless after they had achieved their goal of winning their first title in over thirty years.

And then in the summer, Spalletti left Napoli in a shock move. This was the result of disagreements with the Partenopei’s outspoken President Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The result was a season in which Napoli have never looked comfortable with the role of defending champions.

There have been three different coaches at the club already this season. And they find themselves marooned in midtable.

Massimo Moratti: “Inter Must Avoid Repeating Mistakes Of Napoli”

At the moment, Inter will feel that they are on another level from the rest of Serie A.

But it is certainly a cautionary tale for the Nerazzurri to remember that Napoli undoubtedly felt the same way just twelve months ago.

Former Inter President Moratti reflected that “Initially, the thing that’s beautiful is achieving your goal,” when the team wins the title.

“Then you become aware of what it means,” he continued.

“You wake up, you see that it’s concrete, positive.”

Moratti suggested that “It’s even moreso if you run the risk of not making it real.”

As far as the risks for Inter after clinching the title, Moratti said that “They could think that they’re unbeatable. Then they could take future matches too lightly.”

“Of course, you don’t do that consciously,” the former Inter President went on.

“But when you win titles, it puts you in a position where you start to feel superior.”

“Look at Napoli,” he said. “Last season, it seemed like they were unbeatable.”
