Inter chief Massimo Moratti was delighted with his club’s response to their crisis in the win over Chievo Verona.
The Nerazzurri had collected just six points from their previous seven League matches before last night’s 3-1 victory at San Siro.
“I expected the team to respond like that,” the oil baron noted on Monday. “I could see the Coach and the players were determined to play like that.
“They got their tactics right yesterday too. Then there was Diego Milito making his return, Esteban Cambiasso playing well.
“All people who know what they have to do at the right time.”
Argentine striker Milito again netted for the Nerazzurri to underline just how crucial he is to the Beneamata cause.
“If Milito is scoring then it means that we don't need an alternative for him,” smiled Moratti. “Or at least the Coach didn't ask for one in January.
“As long as Milito is doing well – and I hope he'll keep going for a long time yet – we don't need one.”
Moratti was also questioned about some unsavoury chants aimed at Milan new boy Mario Balotelli in last night’s game from his former fans.
“I was told about it because I couldn't make out clearly what they were saying. I'm very sorry about that. I really hope it doesn't happen during the derby.”
