Moratti: We have to build a new Inter without thinking about immediate results

The Nerazzurri supremo has admitted that the club is in dire need of fresh reinforcements, and could be forced to sacrifice short-term success in the reconstruction process
Inter president Massimo Moratti has stated that it would be wise to start rebuilding the team for the future without worrying too much about immediate results.

The Giuseppe Meazza side are going through a difficult season as they were eliminated from the Champions League by Olympique de Marseille on Tuesday, are out of contention for Coppa Italia and are struggling in Serie A.

"A wise idea might be that of starting to think about the future not in immediate terms, but by building a team that is essentially young," Moratti was quoted as saying on Inter's official website.

"It depends on the realistic ambitions and habits that you want to have, though. It would be wise to rebuild from the foundation without the idea of immediately obtaining big results, and hoping the acquisitions you make will turn out to be the right ones.

"In addition to the ability of new players with fresher legs, we also need experience. Many will remain, and we'll also get some new players. It depends on the project that we put together with the coach."

Inter currently sit seventh in the Serie A table with 40 points from 27 games.
