Inter defend decision to leave Crespo out of squad

Internazionale's decision to leave Hernan Crespo out of their Champions League squad was merely a technical one, according to club director Marco Branca.

The Argentinian forward was not included in Jose Mourinho's 25-man squad for Europe's elite club competition.

'Crespo knows perfectly well the respect and admiration he has here with us,' said Branca.

'It's a technical decision and it has to be respected. That doesn't take away our great respect by Inter towards him.'

The 33-year-old Crespo, who had been linked with a move away from the San Siro this summer, was disappointed with Inter's decision.

'Crespo didn't like what happened,' said the player's agent Fernando Hidalgo.

'He was informed of his exclusion of the Champions League on the final day of the transfer market.

'These are things that happen in football and he will try to have playing time in Serie A and the Coppa Italia to prove his value.'

Hidalgo has not ruled out that Crespo could leave Inter in the winter transfer market.

The ex-Lazio star has been reportedly a target of last seasonĀ“s Serie A runners-up Roma.

'I haven't spoken to anyone at Roma,' admitted Hidalgo.

'But it could be that the Giallorossi has spoken directly to Inter. Hernan has always liked Roma and during his time at Chelsea he came close to joining the Giallorossi.''
