Moratti: No agreement reached over Inter sale

MorattiInter president Massimo Moratti responded coyly to rumours he attended his last game as the Nerazzurri president on Sunday as speculation over Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir’s takeover mounts.

Genoa provided the opposition for Moratti’s apparent presidential swansong at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, but the 68-year-old – whose family have controlled the club since the 1950s – remained evasive on both his own future and that of the club.

“It is not nice to talk about my last game,” he told Sky Sport Italia before Sunday’s match. “I don’t like saying that and I don’t think so, anyway.

“I am excited, as I always am before a home Inter match. Especially when it is the first [of the season].

“We haven’t reached an agreement yet [with Thohir]. If we do, then that’s fine. If we don’t, then nothing will be done.

“My desire is to do things properly, then we’ll see if it’s enough.”

Moratti was also quizzed regarding recent rumours that former Nerazzurri forward Samuel Eto’o was poised for a return to the club.

“Eto’o? We’ll see what happens over the next few days,” he said.

Inter defeated Genoa 2-0 in their opening Serie A fixture on Sunday, thanks to goals from Yuto Nagatomo and Rodrigo Palacio.
