Moratti: 'Now title race gets interesting'

Inter President Massimo Moratti is celebrating his side's ascent to second place. “Now it's starting to get really interesting.”

The Nerazzurri seemed to be out of the title race before Christmas, but the return of Leonardo to the bench has seen them close to within five points of leaders Milan and, thanks to last night's result, ahead of Napoli.

“I don't think the Milan derby will be decisive, but this is all very amusing. Now it's starting to get really interesting,” grinned the patron.

“Walter Mazzarri's men are not out of the running. They were poor last night, but that doesn't spoil the fact they remain a strong side and have always done well up until now.”

Milan are flying high from that 3-0 victory and their next match on Saturday is against a Juventus in crisis. So will Moratti be cheering on the Bianconeri?

“I haven't thought about it yet... I think Juve will be eager to make up for the recent poor form.

“The Scudetto race will go to the wire if Inter and Napoli manage to take a few points off the gap. I am extremely proud of my players and hope to be even more so at the end of the season.”
