Former Inter Milan owner Massimo Moratti is happy with the progress being made by the club he once owned and still loves.

Moratti sold the Milan based club to Erick Thohir of Indonesia originally, but the club has since been sold on to Chinese investors the Zhang family.

All of which Moratti played a part in, as he was adamant that the club moved forward with the right people in place.

Back at the time, he told Calicomercatio, “If it’s good for the club, I could accept.”

True to his word, he has stuck around to ensure that the stewardship of his beloved Inter was legitimate.

In a recent interview reported by Football Italia, he said of the clubs owners:

“The Zhang family members are very kind, both Steven and his father.”

“They’re very keen on doing well and I’m happy with the current situation. I’m very impressed with Sensi and the Coach.”

When asked about new signing Sensi, he added:

“I didn’t expect Stefano Sensi to be so good.”

“He’s clever, quick and changed the team a bit like Sneijder.”

In reference to Antonio Conte, he continued:

“The basics are in place for Inter to do well. Conte’s a good Coach, in the statements he makes and the spirit he’s given to the team.”

With the Milan Derby coming up, the inevitable was asked. But Moratti was slightly more coy about the Della Madonnina and was looking at the bigger picture.

He concluded:

“It won’t say anything [about the season], but Inter has what it takes to fight for the Scudetto.”
