Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta has spoken to Sky Sport after yesterday’s defeat against Bologna in order to confirm the board’s full trust in coach Simone Inzaghi.
“We’re satisfied with what we have accomplished in recent years, but the team and the coach need to step up and solve the problem we have with consistency. We, as the board, are always ready to back them up but it’s up to them to find solutions. We’ve done great things but the Scudetto is the main prize”.
Inter’s defeat at Bologna was only their second in 2023 but it was welcomed with widespread frustration and dissatisfaction as the Nerazzurri now sit in second place, on par with Milan and 18 points behind leaders Napoli.
After yesterday’s game Lautaro Martinez apologized to the fans and it is something Marotta approved: “We liked Lautaro’s attitude, I’ve appreciated his words. They’re synonymous of belongingness and devotion to the jersey. Everyone has to work following this example”.
Finally Marotta spoke about Romelu Lukaku’s future as the striker is on loan from Chelsea and the two clubs have to find new agreement if the Belgian has to stay with The Nerazzurri from next season on.
“As of today Lukaku is a Chelsea player and he’ll go back there at the end of the season, from then on there will be a new scenario and we’ll evaluate what to do.
“He wants to stay, that’s something he has expressed us in multiple occasions and certainly we’ll see if we can get a deal so that he can stay”.
