Inter chief Moratti: Who’s Diakite?

Inter chief Massimo Moratti is getting tired of Lazio’s suspicions that Modibo Diakite has agreed to join them next summer.

Capital President Claudio Lotito fears that the 25-year-old, who has rejected a new contract at the Olimpico, is all set for a summer Bosman switch to San Siro.

“When I read the words of Lotito I almost fell over,” Moratti noted. “I rang my directors in the middle of the night and asked who this player was as I couldn’t even remember his name.

“I don’t know why Lotito is insisting with this story and I could get upset if he continues,” Moratti added.

“Diakite may be a good player, but we have done nothing and we’ve not even thought about making a move for him.”

The player’s agent yesterday claimed that a January move to Genoa was a possibility, but insisted that his client’s future was yet to be resolved.
