Inter President Massimo Moratti has sent an open letter to Fiorentina demanding an end to the Calciopoli scandal and their part in trying to have the 2006 Scudetto revoked.

Fiorentina’s Diego Della Valle has repeatedly asked for talks to clear the air between clubs and put pressure on the Inter to have the FIGC decision overturned.

The letter from Moratti read: “It is difficult to comprehend the repeated requests for a meeting put forward by ACF Fiorentina shareholder Diego Della Valle: it is not a private matter that can be settled by sitting down for a chat around a table,” wrote Moratti in an open letter.

“The matter has already been resolved by the competent institutions and respect for such institutions should induce all parties to abide by the decisions taken, as is congruous for those living in a civilised country, since no informal chat between individuals can substitute rulings made by competent authorities.

“Neither Inter as a club nor myself intend to behave any differently, not because we have anything to fear but because we have faith in the authorities, be they sporting or judiciary.

“Any meeting held elsewhere would not only be entirely inappropriate, it would also be disrespectful towards the rulings that have already been made and those which are yet to be passed.

“These repeated requests do little more than keep alive and pointlessly prolong a matter which has already been concluded with the verdicts rendered, which are clearly unsatisfactory to Mr Della Valle, who is of course also sensitive about verdicts that are yet to be pronounced.

“F.C. Internazionale and the undersigned intend to abide by the decisions made by the institutions and trust that this should now suffice to put an end to these requests which appear manipulative and to which no further attention will be given.

“Massimo Moratti, F.C. Internazionale President.”

Recently uncovered evidence found Inter guilty of the same wrongdoings as other clubs, which would have meant the 2006 Scudetto would have been revoked, but the FIGC were unable to act as the statute of limitations had lapsed.

Fiorentina are pushing Inter to waive the statute of limitations and have a full trial begin.
