Luciano Moggi Responds To Palermo Chief Maurizio Zamparini's 'Inter Are The New Juventus' Barb

Former Juventus director Luciano Moggi has hit back at Maurizio Zamparini's criticism of Inter.
Former Juventus transfer director Luciano Moggi has responded to Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini, who compared Inter to the Old Lady of times gone by.

On Monday Zamparini claimed "Inter are the new Juventus" as he took a stab at both clubs after feeling Palermo were wronged by the match officials following their 2-1 loss to the champions.

The referee system will not be overthrown from fragmentary evidence dished out in Palermo, but Zamparini's daggers were sharp enough to cause blood. Moggi though responded with bare teeth and clawed hands.

"Zamparini was speaking about power, but he needs to be more specific," Moggi told Sport Italia.

"I also saw an interview he gave to Il Corriere dello Sport in which he said we were heading back to the times of Calciopoli.

"Zamparini must say whether those involved in Calciopoli are still in it, or whether they are out of it seeing that football is getting worse."

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta led a staunch defence of his club following Zamparini's comments. He said: "Juventus have always won fairly."

Moggi declared his position on that belief.

"Marotta's response was congenial. Everyone knows what the problem is," he said.

"The problems came from Piedmont and everyone sat at the table because it was appetising. Getting rid of Juventus meant taking away a team with leadership, a side that allowed others freedom.

"[Claudio] Lotito said this is a new era? In the previous era he was called to judgement. Everyone should be quiet."
