Former Juventus boss Fabio Capello dubbed the decision to award Inter Milan the 2005-06 Scudetto a ‘joke’ as well as criticising racists in Italian football.

Capello’s guided Juve side won that season’s Serie A title before it was stripped off from them due to their involvement in the Calciopoli scandal and given to Inter.

But the former Madrid coach didn’t like how it was handled as he branded it a joke.

“It was a joke and clearly unfair to have assigned that Scudetto to Inter,” he said in the second part of his interview with Radio Anch’io Sport cited on Football Italia.

“The timing wasn’t respected and the rules didn’t allow for sporting justice to operate properly.

“Guido Rossi [the FIGC’s extraordinary commissioner at the time] acted too hastily.”

Spalletti explains what’s happening with Icardi

The Inter Milan manager believes his decision to drop Mauro Icardi is difficult but it's the right one to take.

Napoli were warned against walking off the field after Kalidou Koulibaly was racially abused against Inter, so the ex-Milan and Roma Coach has a solution…

“Players should sit on the field and they shouldn’t be punished,” he continued.

“By doing that, it would help the fans who are behaving and want to watch football, while forcing those guilty of monkey chants to stop and feel ashamed of what they’re doing.

“Italy’s the only country where the ultras are in charge and the players go to greet them. We give too much importance to these people.

“Around 85-90% of the fans who come to the stadium are important, not these gentlemen with banners, slogans, and power given to them by their clubs.”
