Massimo Moratti departure marks end of an era at Inter Milan

Erick Thohir hands outgoing president Massimo Moratti an Inter shirt to mark his 18 years in charge.
Inter Milan president Erick Thohir needs to convince that the future is bright after Massimo Moratti's exit.

The backdrop to Inter Milan's Europa League tie against Saint-Etienne on Thursday was a tale of uncertainty and shock. Massimo Moratti ended an era of almost 20 years by resigning as honorary president. The Moratti family has been part of the Nerazzurri's DNA, but Thursday saw Massimo and his three sons Angelomario, Rinaldo Ghelfi and Alberto Manzonetto leave their seats on the board for the last time.

A statement from the Moratti company read: "Internazionale Holding Srl, a company headed by Massimo...

Inter Milan 2-2 Napoli: Five things we learned at the San Siro

Hernanes scored a late equaliser for Inter Milan as under-pressure Walter Mazzarri's men drew 2-2 against Napoli on Sunday night.

The San Siro came to life on Sunday night with four goals in the final 11 minutes in Inter Milan's 2-2 draw against Napoli. Jose Callejon netted either side of Fredy Guarin's equaliser and Hernanes' strike secured a point late on. Here's five things we learned ...

A good balance of tactics and intensity

Walter Mazzarri has consistently stayed faithful to his interpretation of a 3-5-2 system this season. His failure to change when games have been drifting away from Inter, however, has often led...

Keisuke Honda has found his footing at Milan under new boss Pippo Inzaghi.
Keisuke Honda has found his footing at Milan under new boss Pippo Inzaghi.

History tells us that the Stadio Bentegodi is a difficult place for Milan, but they ended their curse with a 3-1 win over Hellas Verona on Sunday afternoon. While there were several pleasing aspects in the victory, a brace from Keisuke Honda was undoubtedly the highlight.

The Japanese international's rise this season has been impressive, particularly given the struggles he encountered in his opening few months in Italy last year. However, now settled in Pippo Inzaghi's system, Honda already has...

Player Ratings: Top-notch Totti returns Roma back to win column

Rudi Garcia was delighted with Roma's comfortable win over Chievo, but the head coach admitted he is always prepared for the sack as a football boss.

After a controversial loss to Juventus last time around, Roma came out swinging at home against Chievo to answer any doubts that there may have been about how the defeat would affect the side. It didn't take long for Mattia Destro to head those qualms away from a corner, before Adem Ljajic added a sensational second and Francesco Totti finished off the game with a penalty later in the first half to help Rudi Garcia's side move within one point of Juventus.

If Roma were in cruise control during...

Draw with Sassuolo proves Juventus need more tactical work under Allegri

Massimiliano Allegri was frustrated by Juventus' inability to take their chances as the defending champions failed to win a Serie A game for the first time this season, drawing at Sassuolo.

Spitting in the face of every cliche used to describe Serie A, the 1-1 match between Sassuolo and Juventus at the Mapei Stadium was played at a thrilling tempo and demonstrated that not even Serie A's bottom placed team is willing to sit back and absorb. On the contrary, rarely have we seen a side as courageous both tactically and physically as Eusebio Di Francesco's team.

Opting to deploy a 3-4-3 formation, their first priority was to ensure they disturbed Juve's usual style of play. That meant...

Pressure grows on Walter Mazzarri at Inter Milan ahead of Napoli reunion

Walter Mazzarri's Inter returned to their winning ways in Thursday's Europa League victory over Qarabag.
Inter Milan coach Walter Mazzarri faces his former club on Sunday.

Encounters with the past can have a decisive bearing on a person's future and, for Inter coach Walter Mazzarri, Sunday's game against Napoli is no different.

On the face of it, the 53-year-old is in no immediate danger. Financial circumstances mean another defeat would unlikely bring the first dismissal of his career even if (the expensive) Roberto Mancini and (the cheap) Walter Zenga have been mentioned.

Furthermore, Inter's new owner, Erick Thohir, is more patient than his predecessor, Massimo...
