LONDON – Massimo Moratti with the
Italian Olympics team. A huge sports fan, the Nerazzurri president didn’t
want to miss out on this last weekend of Olympic action at the 2012 Games in London.
After watching Clemente
Russo take the silver medal in boxing and Inter
fan Carlo Molfetta win gold in taekwondo, Moratti offered his personal congratulations to
the Azzurri heroes at Team Italy’s base in the capital.
The president shared compliments with Molfetta, a huge Nerazzurri fan, and joked:
"You’re a class act. You should join us at Inter!"
Speaking to the journalists present, he then commented on Russo’s
silver medal: "It’s a shame he didn’t win but the other guy seemed
much bigger and in the last round [the Ukrainian] clearly had
the upper hand. Boxing? I’ve always been a big fan."
Moratti was inevitably asked some
football-related questions as well. "Brazil? I only saw a bit of the
game. The Italian Super Cup? They told me the result when I got here.
Napoli deserted the presentation ceremony in protest? They must have had their reasons for it, but I didn’t watch the game so I can’t
comment. Conte’s suspension? It’s in the past now."
