Moratti convinced Inter Milan missing Spurs midfielder Perisic

Former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says the departure of Ivan Perisic has been underestimated.

The veteran midfielder departed for Tottenham over the summer

With Inter struggling this season, Moratti said: “We all like to pretend to forget that Perisic was a fantastic player and he gave a very big helping hand to the defence too.

“Perhaps his departure was under-estimated, it was a very big and notable change to the team.”

Asked about the future of coach Simone Inzaghi, he added: “I’m not the person to ask, because I went through so many coaches, my opinion isn’t exactly reliable… Joking aside, I would continue with Inzaghi, because I think he already proved himself.”
