thumbnail Hello,

The Italian club chief insists there are no harsh feelings toward the referee establishment in Serie A following the controversy which marred their latest match over the weekend

Inter president Massimo Moratti has tried to calm the storm surrounding his club following Saturday's 3-0 loss to Napoli in Serie A.

Moratti was furious after the defeat and said referee Gianluca Rocchi ruined the game at San Siro.

The chief went on to say that he "never wanted to see" the referee again after he had sent off Joel Obi and awarded Napoli a penalty.

Referee designator Stefano Braschi said Rocchi's performance may have been slightly "undertone" but insisted he was one of the "best" officials in Europe.

And Moratti was keen to put Saturday's setback behind him.

"I saw what Braschi said and this is good sense, he is trying to calm the waters," Moratti told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"No-one wants to carry on [moaning], but the bad feelings came at the end of the game which we feel was distorted.

"There are no grudges, but there must be responsibility from everyone involved."

Meanwhile, the Serie A sports judge has confirmed Claudio Ranieri and Obi have both been suspended for one match.
