Former Euro big wig reveals Eric Cantona signing regrets

Former Inter President Massimo Moratti has revealed his regret at not signing Eric Cantona during his time in charge of the club.

The 72-year-old spent 18 years at the helm of one of Italy’s top clubs, having taken up the role in 1995, and in an interview for Radio Rai in Italy he revealed the players he wished he had signed and also those he wishes he could put in coach Luciano Spalletti’s current squad.

He said: “I would always put Cambiasso into the team, he is fundamental for the midfield. I would only add a few from the treble winning side like Sneijder who increases the speed of the team. Meanwhile in attack, I think that Spalletti is covered with Icardi who is a quality player.”

However, one player he would have loved to see in the blue and black would have been former Manchester United star Cantona, with Moratti adding: “Any regrets? I really liked Cantona but you can not sign all players.”

In conclusion Moratti was asked about the current Italian national team, adding: “it is not easy to overcome the play-offs, it is not all up to poor Ventura. Let’s see how the players arrive for these fixtures. It will not be easy to qualify for the World Cup.”
