Lippi: "I appreciate Inter's strong position on Icardi"
Speaking to Il Giornale, Marcelo Lippi discusses the past summer transfer window operated by Inter.
“I must say that I greatly appreciated the strong and rigorous position of Inter when it came to dealing with Icardi situation: in the end reasonableness prevailed.”
Did Marotta win for sending away Mauro or Wanda for getting a rich contract from PSG?
“This situation satisfies both sides. Icardi renewed contract and is now a player of PSG which means Champions League football. Inter got to send away a thorn on Conte’s side and now he can continue his work of building his group. In one fell swoop, they solved both issues.”
How do you like this new Inter?
“Team unity. I like Lukaku very much as a footballer and as a man. I know Conte and I know he will a hard ass during the week because the goal is to give continuity of performance to a team that, for recent and past history, has been a day of a cicada and another day an ant. The usual three teams will play for the Scudetto: Juve, Inter, Napoli.”
