Nerazzurri CEO Beppe Marotta: “Skriniar Contract Extension? We’re Confident But A Lot Depends On Him, Sale Of Inter? Above My Pay Grade”​


Inter CEO Beppe Marotta feels that there is reason to be optimistic that defender Milan Skriniar will extend his contract, although the decision ultimately lies in the hands of the player.

Speaking to Italian news outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, the Nerazzurri executive made clear that it is all up to the 27-year-old how the negotiations conclude, and also declined to comment on recent reports of the club being up for sale by owners Suning.

Skriniar’s contract situation is one of the outstanding matters for the club to sort out over the coming weeks.

Given that the Slovakian’s current deal is set to run out at the end of June 2023, the club don’t want there to be any chance of losing him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

The Nerazzurri have been reported as ready to offer Skriniar a new deal with significantly improved wages.

However, particularly with the interest of Paris Saint-Germain still remaining in the background, it is not a foregone conclusion that an agreement will be reached.

Asked about the negotiations, Marotta said that “We’re confident, even if clearly a lot depends on what he intends.”
“But in my role I have to be optimistic,” he added.

Of the reports of a sale on the way, the CEO replied that “I’ll just say that this is a situation above my pay grade.”

“I can only say that the owners are very close to the team and the club, and that they’ve always fulfilled their financial obligations.”

“I have to point out that the Zhang family have given hundreds of millions of euros to the directors to work with,” he pointed out.

Of the team’s difficult start to the campaign, Marotta said that “In reality it’s as if we began the season with an invisible handicap that we didn’t understand.”


“Then there was a confrontation within the locker room, as happens frequently, and then the coach proved that he was able to get everyone back on track, and now the team looks like a carbon copy of last season’s,” the CEO said.

“I’m confident for the future,” Marotta said of the rest of the season.

It i$ v€ry vi$ibl€ handycap.
We are forced to downgrade our team every season and you almost forcibly drive out loyal core players so they start the season in wobbly mental state.

Beppe Marotta: “Four Points Against Barcelona Surprised Me, Never Had Any Doubts About Simone Inzaghi”​

Inter CEO Beppe Marotta feels that the team’s heroics against Barcelona in the Champions League came as something of a surprise.
Speaking to the media at the Gran Gala dal Calcio, the Nerazzurri executive admitted that he hadn’t really expected such positive results, and also made clear that Simone Inzaghi’s future at the club has never been in doubt.

Inter had gone into their two Champions League group stage matches against Barcelona in the space of a week fairly low on confidence. Facing a team as formidable as this Blaugranas side would be a tough ask at the best of times, but doing so immediately after two Serie A losses in a row looked especially difficult.
However, the Nerazzurri produced two of their best performances of the season to beat Barcelona at the San Siro before picking up a point from a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Camp Nou.

“The Champions League is a knockout competition, and so single matches count for a lot,” Marotta said.
“It was surprising to have taken four points off of Barcelona in those matches,” he continued, “I hadn’t expected those level of performances against such a top team.”

Of the difficulties coping with a midseason break for the World Cup, Marotta said that “This is the first time that we’ve had this kind of situation with the World Cup, we have to figure out how to deal with it.”
“It’s necessary to have foresight regarding how things will look on the other side of it,” he continued.

Asked if Inter will need to come back stronger, the CEO replied “Definitely, yes, the important thing is that we stay as possible to the teams at the top after the last weekend in November.”
“After the break, we’ll certainly come back at our best.”

Regarding the injury absence of striker Romelu Lukaku, Marotta said that “As you know, football is a team sport, and individual players aren’t completely relied on.”

Of the team’s start to the campaign, Marotta said that “It’s like the team started with an invisible handicap, and they had to use their experience and professionalism to figure it out and get through it.”
“The team that played good football and took a lot of points last season is back, however.”

Of the rumours that Simone Inzaghi could be sacked as Inter coach prior to the team’s turnaround in form, Marotta said that “We’re used to receiving criticism, it’s part of the game.”

He then went on that “From the President to the directors, we have never imagined for a single second changing the coach.”
“I have never changed coaches midseason in 27 years in football,” he continued, “things were nowhere near where they’d have to be to consider that.”
This is a testament to the maturity of the directors here,” he added.

And of rumours regarding a possible sale of Inter by Suning, Marotta said that “These are matters that are above my pay grade, but the owners have done their duty and we’re a club who always honour our contractual obligations.”

Here`s the complete interview. Now we have confirmation that he will never change coach during the season.

Hello everyone. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to all of you to this Shareholders’ Meeting.

Today, three years on from the last time, we finally meet again in person.

The last three years have been extremely tough, as we have had to face a global pandemic that has shaken up all our lives and the whole of humanity.

These last three years have put our daily habits to the test, along with the foundations underpinning what we believe in and our values, generating inevitable repercussions on the social fabric and balance across the political and economic spectrums in which we live and work.

In such a complicated context, sport once again, and football in particular, has played a key role for society, not just through its capacity to provide entertainment and comfort for millions of fans the world over, but also in conveying its most authentic values such as self-sacrifice, willpower, a sense of belonging and resilience.

At Inter, we strongly felt this responsibility and were fully committed to carrying out our duty to the full in order to send out the type of positive messages on and off the pitch that have always showcased the club’s unique values.

THE SUCCESS OF THE 2021/22 SEASON AND THE SUSTAINABILITY DRIVE

We have regained success in the last few years and kept that positive trend going. This fills us with pride and makes our sporting accomplishments even more glorious.

In summer 2021, after winning the Scudetto for the 19th time in the club’s history, in total agreement with the ownership, we focused on reinforcing our healthy management of the club based on a modern and more ethical vision.

There was a dual goal: to combine a policy for reducing costs and lowering the wage bill and keeping sporting competitivenessat the very highest level while respecting the club’s history and traditions.

This was certainly an onerous challenge that we approached together with unity, bravery, determination and a sense of belonging.

First of all, we obtained the maximum economic revenue possible from the transfer window, putting the club in a position of greater financial stability. The benefits of this are clear to see in the financial results which have been approved today in this Shareholders’ Meeting.

We then focused on building a squad that could keep competing at the very top. In order to do so, we chose a very good young coach who was already experienced and had tasted success, making him capable of carrying the team forward while being fully aligned with our vision. Simone Inzaghi accepted this new challenge with great enthusiasm, humility and also heaps of ambition.

Simone left his mark on Inter straight away in the shape of a modern and European brand of football underpinned by the winning mentality that Inter had rediscovered and that had allowed us to regain success after such a long barren spell.

I am here in front of you today to present two more trophies, both of which were won last season. Along with the 2021 Scudetto, these form a magnificent treblethat we are so proud of. The Italian Super Cup and Coppa Italia trophies immediately remind us of those two fantastic nights against Juventus and the unwavering joy that we all shared with our wonderful supporters who were finally able to return to the stadium to show their passion and support to us.

The league campaign ended differently to how we wanted it to. We went through a dip that unfortunately cost us in the final reckoning. In the last three seasons, we have finished one point off top in second, top and two points off top in second, with a title push until the last day that left a bitter taste in the mouth but that provided further confirmation of the consistency shown by the club in terms of being competitive towards the summit, as Inter’s history demands.

Last season, we got through the Champions League group stage to reach the round of 16 in the Champions League, something the club had not attained in 10 years. We put ourselves back on the European map and continued to grow as a team, as evidenced by our victory over Liverpool at Anfield, which provided a confidence boost for the squad and gave us all the more conviction in terms of the work that we are doing.

Last season was also enriched by the crowning of our Primavera team’s tenth Scudetto title. Inter are the first club in Italy to have earned a historic first star. Our youth academy therefore confirmed why it is the pride and joy of our club, a cutting-edge production line where our young players are forged to become men first and footballers second. It is a strategic resource, both in economic and sporting terms.

Inter Women, a project in which the club is showing more and more ambition, continued down the pathway that we had planned for the team and it is now bringing positive results this season. I am convinced that our women’s team will provide us with many happy moments in the near future.

ENGAGING WITH INSTITUTIONS

On an institutional level, the club is aware of the important role that it plays within the context of Italian and international football, along with the responsibility of representing millions of supporters, and has held a constant, collaborative dialogue with political and sporting institutions regarding key topics, such as enhancing product resources, containing working costs to promote a reliable tax deferral mechanism, rebalancing national and international sporting calendars in order to protect clubs and players, and boosting infrastructure.

In addition to these structural and economic matters, which were made more urgent because of the difficulties experienced in the post-pandemic period, our presence within the world of institutions looks to develop social trends that aim to involve and entice new generations to enjoy and play the best sport in the world. This requires huge commitment in order to develop dedicated infrastructure systems and a rebalancing of the social role of sport within our education system.

Inter are particularly focused on combining youngsters’ sporting commitments with their education. Last season, our club completed the Suning Youth Centre and Inter College, which are purpose-built for the players at our academy in order for them to develop as footballers while completing their study pathway.

THE NEW SEASON

With the self-belief and pride from restoring success at Inter and qualifying for the Champions League group stage for the fifth year in a row, we embarked on the mission of building the squad for the 2022/23 season with the same dual objective of maintaining sporting competitiveness at the very highest level and continuing to seek financial stability.

With this in mind, targeted major incoming and outgoing operations were completed in line with the parameters that we had set for ourselves. I would like to congratulate our Chief Sport Officer Piero Ausilio and everyone involved in the sporting areaon a wonderful job.

We have strengthened the squad to ensure Simone Inzaghi has multiple solutions and more scope to make choices, bearing in mind that this is an anomaly of a season due to the long break caused by the World Cup.

The arrival of Andre Onana, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Francesco Acerbi and the thrilling return of Romelu Lukaku have strengthened the squad and added international experience, while bringing in talented youngsters such as Kristjan Asllani and Raoul Bellanova ensures that solid foundations are being laid with an eye on the future.

I would like to reiterate my most heartfelt thanks to our owners and President Steven Zhang, who continue to support us. I would stress once again how their support has been unwavering, as seen by the continual ploughing of significant financial resources into the club over the years for the good of Inter and the millions of supporters across the globe.

TARGETS AND CONCLUSIONS

The other night, we experienced another memorable evening together while celebrating the fact that the team had reached the Champions League round of 16 for the second time in a row, having navigated a group in which everyone thought we were underdogs. I would once again like to congratulate Simone Inzaghi and all the players on this magnificent achievement.

Accomplishments such as the head-to-head against Barcelona honour our history and traditions: this is our Inter.

This is the strength of a team that does not want to set any limits and that wants to approach the journey that lies ahead in the league with self-belief and a desire to keep winning. We hope to continue with the Italian Super Cup, which we will once again be taking part in this year - an enticing showdown with Milan in Saudi Arabia in January.

Finally, I would like to thank all of you shareholders for your support, passion and love for our club. I bid you farewell while reassuring you of my renewed commitment to keep doing everything possible to provide you with more happy moments to build on the trophies won in the last two years and more memorable nights like Wednesday evening.

SPORTING DEMAND €30M IN COMPENSATION FROM INTER FOR JOAO MARIO TRANSFER :yao:
Inter confirmed today that Sporting have requested €30m in compensation following the transfer of Joao Mario to Benfica last year.

The Nerazzurri signed the Portuguese midfielder from Sporting in the summer of 2016 in a deal worth around €41m. That agreement included a clause that gave the Lisbon club first priority should another Portuguese side try to sign the player as well as a fee should he join one of their rivals.

Last year, Joao Mario terminated his contract with Inter and then joined Benfica on a free transfer, a move that infuriated Sporting, who had asked after the midfielder but received no reply. Sporting are now demanding that €30m be paid by Inter because he did ultimately join another Portuguese side and they claim that the clause was not respected.

Inter are now examining the situation with their lawyers and are prepared to take action to protect themselves.

Joao Mario scored four goals and provided 13 assists in 69 appearances across all competitions for Inter.
Sporting are delusional. The player`s contract with the club was terminated, he was not sold. Marotta knew exactly what he was doing and punished Sporting, because they kept fucking around with the transfer fee.

They have nothing on Inter, just trying to be a pain in the ass. Sporting come through more like a fart.

MAROTTA ON INTER, LUKAKU, SKRINIAR, GOSENS AND ULTRAS
Inter chief Beppe Marotta commented on Milan Skriniar’s contract talks, Robin Gosens, Romelu Lukaku and the ultras scandal ahead of their Champions League trip to Bayern Munich. The result is largely irrelevant, as both teams have qualified for the Round of 16 and Bayern Munich are guaranteed top spot, with Inter in second, sending Barcelona to the Europa League.

“This is a squad that has been together for a while and has been growing constantly in Italy and Europe, so qualifying for the knockouts for two years running shows the progress made in bringing Inter back to the prestige and level that it deserves,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

The director was asked about negotiations for Milan Skriniar’s new contract, as PSG continue to hover, and growing reports Robin Gosens could be a January transfer window target.

“Skriniar’s value is superlative, on and off the field, so I am very optimistic we can reach a conclusion of those negotiations by the World Cup break, so circa November 13. We have some very positive signs.

“Gosens is a very important player, part of the Germany national team, and is adapting slowly. We mustn’t be hasty and let him gradually become more embedded in the way this team plays.”

Romelu Lukaku had recently made his comeback in the Champions League and Serie A after two months out with a thigh strain, only to suffer another relapse in training.

“In recent weeks there have been a lot of relapses in various squads, due largely to the rush players have to get back in shape and recover from injury during a packed schedule. There are numerous situations that make it difficult to deal with, but I believe the big clubs should no longer talk about first team players and reserves, it is one group that can be called upon in any match.
“So we are sad for Lukaku, but have the players to fulfil all our obligations while we wait for him to fully recover.”

There was scandal at the weekend when ultras pushed and threatened the regular ticket-paying fans to leave the Curva Nord as a sign of ‘respect’ for their leader who was shot in a criminal gang war.

“We released a statement that was very clear. Inter have always fought against all kinds of violence, physical and verbal. I would compare it to VAR, as you can try to reduce the errors and prevent problems, so we are trying to limit it, but have been unable to completely eradicate it so far.
“Our fanbases is amongst the best in the world, we want to look at the good things rather than the negatives, although what happened the other day was an ugly page in the world of football, not just of Inter.”
Hope it`s not just politics and Robin will have his chances.

MAROTTA: ‘INTER RESPECT PORTO, BUT DESERVED TO LOSE AGAINST JUVENTUS’​

Beppe Marotta admits the Champions League Round of 16 draw could be ‘favourable on paper’ but believes the Nerazzurri deserved to lose against Juventus.

The Serie A giants will face Porto in the Champions League Round of 16 in February but have two more games in Serie A before the World Cup break.

They lost 2-0 against Juventus on Sunday night, seeing the Bianconeri leapfrog them in the table, pushing Simone Inzaghi’s boys 11 points below leaders Napoli.

“We are disappointed for a defeat that was absolutely deserved,” Marotta said during the event Industry Talk, organised by Il Corriere Della Sera, as quoted by Calciomercato.com.

“Despite many absentees, Juventus deserved to win in the long run. I never look at the stats, but in this case, we must reflect because we’ve conceded 16 goals from 19 away, losing four times.

“We must analyse the path and make sure we change the team’s double-face. We face an in-form Bologna side on Wednesday and then we visit Atalanta. The previous big games made us understand where we must improve.”

Switching topics and focusing on the Champions League draw, Marotta said: “This draw could be favourable on paper, but we have the utmost respect for Porto, an unpredictable team, especially playing the return leg away.”

The Nerazzurri have two wins, one draw Adriano hat-trick and one defeat against Porto, which they met in the Champions League Round of 16 in 2004-05, winning 4-2 on aggregate thanks to an in the second leg at the Stadio Meazza.

MAROTTA ON INTER HANDICAP, LUKAKU INJURY AND RONALDO OUTBURST
Beppe Marotta reflected on the team’s slow start to the season, the injury suffered by Romelu Lukaku and the Cristiano Ronaldo controversy.

The Nerazzurri have won six of their last seven league outings, losing only to rivals Juventus in the Derby d’Italia earlier this month. Simone Inzaghi’s side have started to shake off their sluggish start to the campaign and now sit 5th in the Serie A table heading into the World Cup break, three points behind second place Milan.

Speaking to Radio Anch’io Lo Sport, Marotta first discussed Inter’s hopes of a possible title race this season.
“Nothing important has changed since yesterday, if not the awareness of being protagonists to the end. This is an unusual season that will start on January 1.
“It’s something unprecedented and we’re curious to understand it, also in terms of athletic performance. For the trainers it will be difficult, we will have to understand player by player what deficiencies there will be.”

He reflected on the Nerazzurri’s disappointing start to the season.
“We had a mysterious handicap whose origins we did not understand. The team and the coach have found the remedies, although the home and away record is a sensation, with 18 goals conceded out of a total of 22.
“This element must make us reflect and must make the coach find solutions, this is our task for the holidays.”

Commented on if Edin Dzeko is likely to leave the club on a free transfer next year.
“I don’t think so, he has shown he wants to stay with us. He deserves the renewal, he’s a great professional and is attached to the shirt. Like many ‘oldies’ he has the habit of scoring goals. We’ll take this into account, our desire is to renew but there must also be the explicit will of the player.”

Marotta discussed his respect for Inter president Steven Zhang and his family.
“I believe that great respect must be given to the Zhang family, they have lavished €800m giving a lot to Inter and to the football system.
“With the pandemic everyone has had financial contractions and ethically it is also right that you can no longer flaunt millionaire investments. You have to be good and competent to be competitive in a complicated world.”

He spoke about the serious injury suffered by Lukaku.
“Certainly this injury was unforeseen and unpredictable, conditioned by the desire to return quickly. You have to be cautious, but it’s part of the business risk when you have a squad of 25.
“I am of the opinion that there should be no competitive stress like there has been this season because it leads to a high number of injuries and we are only halfway through the season. The hope is that he can return as soon as possible.”

He reflected on his departure from Juventus.
“In a club it is normal that there are different visions but I was not totally against the Ronaldo operation, but that was not the element of divorce. My cycle was at the end.”

Gave his thoughts on Ronaldo’s recent shocking interview.
“It is part of the great passion he has for his profession. Football has represented everything for him, it is difficult to live with a physical decline at 37 years of age.”

Finally, Marotta discussed Inter’s battle with league leaders Napoli this season.
“Yesterday we played our 15th game, in the first half we are the only one to have played seven matches at home instead of eight. This is not a trivial fact because at home we have an almost all-win record.
“Even last year Napoli were in the lead, today they have five more points which is the most extraordinary fact. We have four less.
“There are 69 points available, so January 4 won’t be decisive, because the difficulty that provincial teams put in front of you must also be assessed. It’s curious to see what shape we will be in when we come back.”
+1 curious on the January form ;)

Eh, I'm sure that was part of it, but I understood it as him and Paratici just not getting along at all.
