Inter president questioned in 2006 title case

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has finished a three-hour

appearance before the Italian soccer federation’s prosecutor in a

case that could see the 2006 Serie A title reassigned.

Inter was awarded the 2006 title when Juventus was stripped of

the honor for its role in that year’s match-fixing scandal.

Inter was not sanctioned in the scandal, but last year new

phone-tap conversations leaked to local media allegedly revealed

that Moratti conferred with referee selector Paolo Bergamo about

match officials. That prompted the federation to open a new

inquiry.

Moratti tells the ANSA news agency, ”I’m very sure about my

position.”
