Rome, April 12 - Inter Milan Chairman Massimo
Moratti faces disciplinary proceedings after being charged by
the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) Friday for suggesting Serie
A referees are plotting against his team.
Moratti said he no longer believed in the "good faith" of
Serie A's referees after an official wrongly gave Atalanta a
penalty that helped the Bergamo side come from 3-1 down to
defeat the Milanese side 4-3 last weekend.
"When they want to hit you, they hit you," added Moratti
after a defeat that looks to have ended sixth-placed Inter's
hopes of finishing third and qualifying for next season's
Champions League.
The FIGC said Moratti had been charged for expressing
"injurious opinions and comments in the media" about the "good
faith and impartiality of the referees" and correctness of the
championship, in doing so damaging the federation's
"reputation... prestige and credibility".
The comments recalled the controversy that surrounded the
2006 Calciopoli match-fixing scandal, which saw Juventus
stripped of two Serie A titles and demoted to the second tier
for a season.
Inter were awarded one of those titles after the Turin
side's former executives were ruled to have been at the centre
of manipulation to have compliant referees oversee some teams'
matches.
