Inter to receive Scudetto

Reports in Italy suggest that within the next 10 days Inter Milan will be officially awarded last season’s Scudetto.

With Juventus relegated and Milan deducted 44 points, the Nerazzurri top the revised table for the 2005-06 campaign. However, it was initially suggested that the Scudetto would be declared void rather than awarded to the next best team.

A meeting is scheduled for July 28 between members of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and the Football League (Lega Calcio). It is widely believed that that the two governing bodies are set to hand the title to Inter.

Owner Massimo Moratti has been insistent from the beginning that his club deserve to be awarded their 14th championship. “I insist that we are given the title so that we are separated from the guilty clubs,” the oil tycoon stated. “Otherwise we’re saying that the whole of Serie A was involved in the scandal.”
