Inter Milan deny match-fixing report

Saturday, January 31, 2009

Inter Milan have strenuously denied reports claiming they were involved in a match-fixing scandal towards the end of last season.

The club have responded to an article in the Il Giornale newspaper, which published a report claiming they have acquired a report from the justice department to the Public Prosecutor's office questioning Inter's poor form towards the end of last season.

The report hypothesized, although not explicitly, that the Nerazzurri have thrown away a number of matches in order to lengthen gambling odds over winning the Scudetto last term.

The Public Prosecutor's office has denied the reports and Inter have also come out to refute the claims.

A statement on the Inter website read: "In relation to the impudent and misleading title which appeared on the front page of today's Il Giornale newspaper, reporting a declaration that was never made, FC Internazionale Milano would like to reiterate that this doesn't exist.

"The prosecution office of Milan also denied the claims and stated there is no investigation into the 2007/08 championship or Inter.

"The club will take any necessary legal proceedings to protect its image."

Inter president Massimo Moratti added: "It's a joke. It's already been denied by the Public Prosecutor's office and so there's no need for my denial."
