Massimo Moratti weighed in on Napoli’s boycott of the Italian Super Cup victory ceremony for Juventus. “They must’ve had their reasons.”
The Partenopei were furious after losing 4-2 in extra time in Beijing, as Goran Pandev, Juan Camilo Zuniga and Coach Walter Mazzarri were sent off.
As a protest against the refereeing decisions, they left the field before Juve could be presented with the trophy and did not come out to receive their runner-up medals.
“If Napoli abandoned the ceremony, then they must’ve had their reasons,” commented Inter President Moratti today.
“I was told the result, but did not actually see the game, so I cannot pass judgment on the refereeing.”
Moratti, who is in London to be at the Olympic closing ceremony tonight, was also asked about Antonio Conte’s 10-month ban in the betting trial.
“It’s in the past now.”
