Massimo Moratti Stays Quiet Over Inter Match-Fixing Claims

The Inter chief has refused to talk about claims that allege his side fixed matches last term...
Inter president Massimo Moratti has decided not to comment on claims in Il Giornale newspaper which allege his club threw away matches in order to increase the Scudetto odds last season.

An enquiry, which has been released by a branch of the Italian government and published by Il Giornale, claims that the Nerazzurri fixed games towards the end of last season.

The news has rocked calcio this morning, but Moratti has refused to comment on the situation.

"I heard about the news this morning," Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.

"However, I have not read the newspaper and therefore I cannot give any comment on the story. Thank you."

The report, which was conducted by Police on behalf of the Public Ministry, claims Inter threw away games from Week 24 of the 2007-08 season onwards.

One of those games was the penultimate match of the season where the Nerazzurri drew 2-2 with Siena.

In addition, there are claims suggesting Zlatan Ibrahimovic's return from injury was postponed in order to weaken the team.

More news is expected to follow as the story unfolds throughout the day.
