Lawyer Fabio Iudica has revealed that Inter spied on Christian Vieri during his spell at the club in order to make sure he followed the club's internal regulations.
The former Italy stirker filed a lawsuit against the Nerazzurri and Telecom Italia after it came to the fore they had spied on him, and a Milan court decided this week that they have to pay him €1 million.
"Why was Vieri spied on? To check that he was behaving in a manner coherent with Inter's internal regulations, that's all," Iudica told Sky Sport 24.
"Were other people involved? I don't think anyone else is involved. My own view is that this matter will not go to the sporting justice system, nor will Vieri himself even.
"The ruling explains that Christian Vieri's career was in no way harmed by the events that were established by the ruling – an initial ruling, let us remember.
"His right to privacy is the only aspect concerned. All the other factors for which Vieri has requested damages have been dismissed. That's why we are not worried."
Vieri wore the Inter jersey between 1999 and 2005.
