The Nerazzurri have reacted angrily to suggestions that their former owner accepted a league title the club ‘did not win’
Inter have hit back at Juventus president Andrea Agnelli over suggestions that the club accepted a league title they “did not win” following the Calciopoli scandal.
This week former Inter owner Massimo Moratti stepped away from the club after nearly 20 years and was paid something of a backhanded compliment by Agnelli, who stated that Moratti’s love for the club blinded him into taking a Scudetto the club didn’t earn.
And Inter moved quickly to slam Agnelli via an official statement published on the official club website:
“FC Internazionale is saddened to hear that Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has once again attempted to distort the facts and change history.
“Unfortunately for him, and for Italian football as a whole, 2006 was a disastrous year in which the Scudetto was legitimately awarded to Inter by the FIGC and Juventus were relegated to Serie B along with their reputation.
“Those are the facts. We will not allow anyone to change them or act as if they did not happen.”
Inter were handed the 2005-06 league title after Juventus were found guilty of attempting to influence referee appointments.
Juventus were also stripped of the previous season’s league title.
