Ulivieri: 'Inter should hand back Scudetto'

President of the Coaches' Association Renzo Ulivieri has called on Inter to “do the noble thing and hand back the 2006 Scudetto.”

The Nerazzurri were given the title, originally won by Juventus, during the Calciopoli trial, but they too have now been dragged into the scandal.

Although the FIGC report into new evidence of wire-tapped phone calls suggests Inter would be stripped of the title, the matter is now beyond the statute of limitations and therefore no action is likely to be taken.

“I hope Inter do the noble thing, use their common sense and generosity with regards to those events,” declared Ulivieri, President of the AIA.

“I think that if they voluntarily handed back the 2006 Scudetto, the Nerazzurri would gain a new level of respect and admiration.

“I don't want to judge what the Federal Court should do about this, as it's not my job.”

Meanwhile, Ulivieri also commented on Napoli's splendid third-place finish and hopes for the future.

“If they manage to keep hold of their crown jewels and add a couple of quality players, they could even target the Scudetto this season.

“Their project is based around gradual growth and for the moment the club has not disappointed. Fans should keep their faith in President Aurelio De Laurentiis and Coach Walter Mazzarri.”
