so we lost the game, but as always we will win another game in the court

that seems fun to me! we often beat other on transfer market and I believe in court as well

Inter patron Massimo Moratti has waded into the increasingly nasty row with Juventus by dubbing their behaviour “unacceptable and irritating.”

“I am irritated by Juve’s attitude because it is unacceptable, totally unacceptable,” slammed the oil baron.

“Their approach is unbearable, quite apart from who is right and who is wrong in this matter. I’m truly fed up of them now and I think all the Interisti agree with me.”

The Derby d’Italia has always been a bitter rivalry, but rarely has that spilled out so publicly as after Juve’s 2-1 victory at the San Siro on Sunday evening.

Luis Figo claimed that Bianconeri director general Luciano Moggi visited referee Gianluca Paparesta’s office just before kick-off, an allegation that prompted threats of legal action from both clubs and demands for the FIGC to take a stand.

“Juve’s behaviour has been incredible and completely unbearable,” added Moratti. “They love to show themselves in this light, but they cannot seem to understand that it’ll make people dislike them. I am truly fed up with them and I think all Interisti agree with me on this.”

Juventus released a Press Statement dubbing Figo’s claims “serious, absolutely without foundation and downright false.” Inter then hit back with their own missive pointing out that they would defend Figo’s good name in any court in the land.

“Juve have time to waste making these statements, but I don’t. Besides, a very important inquiry has been opened, so we shouldn’t talk about it,” added former President Moratti with more than a hint of sarcasm.

Meanwhile, another investigation is underway into the business practices of football talent agency GEA World, a company run by Moggi’s son, Alessandro.

The feud between Inter and Juventus rumbles on with Luis Figo accusing Bianconeri management of fraternising with the referee before their game on Sunday. “What was Luciano Moggi doing in the referee’s room?” he asked.

The war of words between the Nerazzurri midfielder and the Juve general director gathered pace yesterday when Moggi suggested that the former Portugal captain should keep out of things, saying: “Someone who signs contracts for fun should always shut up.”

Figo, though, refuses to be silenced and instead has accused Moggi of soliciting the referee before the game – a practice which is strictly illegal.

“I’ve been all over the world but nowhere have I seen anyone like Moggi,” he said. “I don’t understand why he behaves in the way that he does, as though he were the grand master of football.

“I would like someone to explain to me why he acts like this and, furthermore, what he was doing in the referee’s room before the game?”

The Italian FA are likely to take a dim view of Figo’s accusation and may well ask both parties to explain themselves at a later hearing. For his part, Moggi denies any wrongdoing.

“We certainly didn’t go to see the referee before the game,” he said. “We only greeted the match official after the match, as we always do, as it is only proper.”

Clearly the bad blood between Inter and Juventus runs deep and it hasn’t taken Figo long to develop an antipathy for the Turin outfit.

He also retorted to Moggi’s barb regarding his signing multiple contracts, insisting that he is keen to have it out with Juve’s transfer mogul one on one.

“I have been very lucky to have had numerous clubs interested in me and to have signed many contracts,” he added.

“But I will talk about this face to face with Moggi when I meet him.”

Moggi’s contract remark is in reference to Figo’s actions in the 90s when he signed agreements with both Juventus and Parma, which eventually saw him move to Barcelona.
