Inter president Massimo Moratti has wasted no time in reacting to Milan chief Silvio Berlusconi this morning as the clubs play a game of verbal tennis.
The Nerazzurri man has hit back at the Rossoneri after Berlusconi claimed his side would be just a point behind them if Adriano's handball goal in the Milan derby had been disallowed.
Moratti feels the secret behind Milan's late-season surge has been the amount of penalties that they have been awarded.
"I think I will count all the penalties Milan have been given this season, and then we will see," Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
Inter's loss to Napoli on Sunday allowed their bitter rivals from across town to move within to seven points of them, with just six matches remaining. However, Moratti has played down the scale of defeat.
"Napoli? It can happen when there is a game which doesn't turn in your favour," added the chief.
"The fans were pushing Napoli, and this put us in difficulty. [Jose] Mourinho was right when he said the game could finish 0-0, but this is not enough when you are trying to win the league."
