Moratti: 'Carew on Inter trial'

President Massimo Moratti reveals John Carew is joining Inter “for a 15-day trial period, then we’ll decide whether to keep him.”

The 33-year-old Norwegian had effectively retired after leaving West Ham United this summer and flew in to Milan this evening.

“Carew will remain here for a 15-day trial period. After 15 days, we will decide whether to keep him in the squad,” declared President Moratti.

“In any case, Tommaso Rocchi is doing well in training and we believe in him.”

Carew would be drafted in as a replacement for Diego Milito, who has been ruled out for at least six months with a knee ligament injury.

Meanwhile, Moratti also looked ahead to the Europa League Round of 16 against Tottenham and their hero Gareth Bale.

“I saw Bale play yesterday, he put in a great performance and is a great football player. It will be a wonderful challenge with Tottenham.”
