Moratti wants Coppa glory

Inter President Massimo Moratti fears the desire of Coppa Italia Final opponents Palermo.

The two teams will face up at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on May 29 eager to lift the Italian Cup.

"I hope that Inter play to win the trophy and I hope it all goes well," Moratti noted today, his 66th birthday.

"However, it won't be an easy game for us because the trophy, at this moment in time, means a lot for Palermo."

The Rosanero have never won the Italian Cup after twice finishing as runners-up in 1974 and 1979.

Moratti, though, is confident of success after seeing the displays of his side in recent games – the latest being in last night's 1-1 draw at Napoli.

"I've seen an improvement in performances and perhaps this is the right time for us to play," continued the oil baron.

"I thought Diego Milito played well which was pleasing, Samuel Eto'o too. Let's hope the team can express itself."
