Inter President Massimo Moratti walked out, but former director Lele Oriali was stunned. “It was inconceivable. I can’t understand how we can throw away a season like this.”
The Nerazzurri had won seven Serie A games in a row from December to January, but have now picked up one point from their last six matches in all competition.
President Moratti took the unusual step of walking out at half-time during tonight’s 3-0 home defeat to Bologna.
“This performance was inconceivable,” said former director Oriali, who did say until the end.
“I cannot understand how we can throw away a season like this. I don’t think Thiago Motta’s departure can be the sole reason for all this.
“I have to take some time to recover from this shock before I can make a clear-headed analysis.”
Large groups of fans also walked out after Bologna’s third goal, while others hurled abuse at the players leaving through the car park after the game.
Supporters were also chanting for the return of Jose Mourinho, who is now on the verge of winning the Liga title with Real Madrid.
There could also be trouble for Luc Castaignos, who was caught on camera spitting in the direction of a Bologna player. He did not make contact, but Marco Di Vaio saw the incident on the bench and was furious.
