Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has expressed his pleasure after the club decided to re-engage Mauro Icardi into first-team action with the club. The Argentine had been out of Nerazzurri duty for nearly two months after being stripped of the captaincy, but he made a much-anticipated comeback against Genoa, where he starred in a 3-0 victory.
Speaking about Icardi, Marotta said that Icardi’s return to the mix was triggered by the professionalism shown by the Argentine in training. He added that the club are prepared to move on from the recent rift with the marksman and concentrate on building a winning run for the rest of the campaign.

Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta has indicated that the club have no plans of parting ways with Radja Nainggolan in the near future despite the recent controversy running through different media platforms. The Belgium international was recently recorded in an audio file where he had expressed the desire to return to AS Roma and this has spread the speculation that the club could sanction his sale in the near future.
However, speaking ahead of the Napoli game, Marotta dismissed the chances of that happening while highlighted that the matter has been closed with the club’s premises, he said: “Absolutely not and I do not think that what has happened invalidates the decision to sign him in July. The team is a community, there are rights and duties and those who do wrong must pay for it. It is up to us to support it to make it better. The team is composed of professionals who are able to deal with negative aspects as a group. These situations always exist and we, the leadership, have been vigilant and consider the matter closed.”
