Fiorentina shareholder Diego Della Valle has called on Inter president Massimo Moratti to stop hiding behind the statute of limitations with regards the 2006 Scudetto.

Della Valle has called for talks to clear the air talks regarding the reassigned title after the FIGC confirmed it could not revoke the championship, despite new evidence being made available.

Moratti wrote an open letter to Della Valle demanding he end his meddling in an affair which has already been dealt with.

“They are trying to transform and manipulate a very serious matter into some sterile summer controversy,” Della Valle told the press.

“I will respond to Moratti’s comments in a Press conference next week, before the season kicks off.

“I hope Moratti will take part in that Press conference too, finding the necessary courage to accept this proposal.

“It would be good and useful for the spirit of clarification and peace, which I asked for from the start, if Moratti were here so we could both clarify our positions and our behaviour before, during and after the scandal.

“Hiding behind an ambiguous ruling certainly cannot be enough for all those who love football and justice.

“I repeat it is our duty to make things clear for our fans and the whole football world, so we can begin the new season with more calm and less violence. It would be a nice gesture and an important step towards the reformation of a future football we all hope for.

“I sincerely hope Moratti finds the necessary courage and accepts this proposal rather than fuelling long-distance controversy that resolves nothing.”
