Spygate: Inter were checking Vieri’s behaviour

Inter lawyer Fabio Iudica has announced the club used private detectives to tail Christian Vieri in order to make sure the player was following internal regulations.

Vieri took the club and Telecom Italia to court after he became aware he was subject to being followed. This week, a court in Milan awarded the former Italian international damages, of which the Nerazzuri will have to pay.

Speaking to Sky Sport 24, Iducia revealed, “Why was Vieri spied on? To check that he was behaving in a manner coherent with Inter’s internal regulations, that’s all.”

“Were other people involved? I don’t think anyone else is involved. My own view is that this matter will not go to the sporting justice system, nor will Vieri himself even.

Commenting on Vieri’s career, he continued, “The ruling explains that Christian Vieri’s career was in no way harmed by the events that were established by the ruling – an initial ruling, let us remember.

“His right to privacy is the only aspect concerned. All the other factors for which Vieri has requested damages have been dismissed. That’s why we are not worried.”

Vieri joined Inter in 1999 and proudly wore the club jersey until 2005.
