Football News: Andrea Stramaccioni

Highly successful former Barcelona manager Guardiola is currently on a year-long break from football, but that has not stopped media speculation linking him to AC Milan.

When asked about the possibility of the Spaniard taking over at Inter Milan instead, Moratti revealed that the thought did not cross his mind as he was satisfied with Stramaccioni's dedication.

"Guardiola? As far as I'm concerned, we already have a good coach," Moratti said to Rai Uno.

"Sometimes when distracted by your fans and popularity it’s not easy to find this kind of dedication. But he [Stramaccioni] has it and it’s something natural."

The Inter president also spoke out against Juventus' decision to approve the departure of Alessandro Del Piero, and he insisted the same would never happen to club captain Javier Zanetti.

"I'm not at Juventus, so I don’t know what the reasons were," Moratti stated.

"Zanetti is a fantastic lad, just as I believe Del Piero was. He has a future written out for him that he wants, meaning that there’s also a future for him as a director, should he ever stop playing football."

Inter Milan will play Catania in their Serie A fixture this Sunday.
