MILAN – President Massimo Moratti stopped to give a few statements to journalists as he arrived at the Stadio Meazza for tonight’s derby.
Reflecting on results elsewhere this afternoon: "As we’ve said before, you can’t say who the favourites are – it’s a strange season. As for ourselves, everything depends on tonight’s game."
If Inter were to do Juventus a favour by beating AC Milan tonight, might it help soothe some of the tension between the two clubs? "It only needs to be soothed on their side, there’s no problem at our end."
Would a derby win be enough to convince the president to keep Stramaccioni on? "It’s only one game. I think Stramaccioni is relaxed about the future. Whether he stays or not doesn’t depend on tonight. But this it is an important game and we have to win it."
