Moratti eyes perfect party

President Massimo Moratti is hoping that his Inter side wrap up the Scudetto in "perfect" style against Roma this evening.

The two teams meet in the rescheduled Week 22 round and a win for the Nerazzurri would see them collect their first on the field Scudetto since 1989.

"It would be perfect," said Moratti. "We are playing a championship in which the important thing is to reach our goal.

"Of course, it would be nice for the fans if it came on Wednesday as many of them will be at the stadium. But we must remember that Roma will be there as well.

"However, it doesn’t matter that much whether the title arrives tonight or at another time – the important thing is just to get across the finish line.

"As a result, we haven’t organised any celebrations as I don’t think there is any need to rush things. Spontaneity is the best thing in these cases."

Inter seemingly haven’t only won the Italian championship, but they have also netted the admiration of Arsenal forward Thierry Henry.

"The respect is mutual, he is a fantastic player and a very intelligent lad," Moratti said. "However, he has confirmed that he has a contract with Arsenal that lasts for a few more years, so I don’t think he will be able to move here.

"In any case, I have to say that for now we are only making plans with regards to the strikers that we already own, players who have done very well this year."

Moratti was also dragged into the Roberto Mancini-Gennaro Gattuso verbal clash over whether the Scudetto victory is more or less difficult than a Champions League success.

"I think this debate is a bit childish," he noted. "Those in the Champions League obviously say that is more important and those ahead in the championship say the opposite. The important thing is to win them both."
