thumbnail Hello,

The president is pleased the European giants were avoided in the draw...

Inter president Massimo Moratti is satisfied with the Champions League draw after his side avoided European giants Manchester United and Barcelona.

CSKA Moscow stand in the way of a semi-final which could see Inter take on either Arsenal or the Camp Nou outfit.

Moratti is glad his team were dealt a satisfying draw.

He told Sky Sport Italia: "It's a good draw, but anything can happen. Playing United or Barcelona would have been scary."

His speech was brief, but Moratti wanted to underline faith in Mario Balotelli, despite the striker being dropped by Jose Mourinho for Palermo.

"I am on the same line as Mourinho. But he [Balotelli] is a champion, and part of our future," he concluded.
