Moratti: Quaresma Is Fast & Classy

After a long transfer saga, Massimo Moratti finally brought Ricardo Quarsema to the San Siro at the request of coach Jose Mourinho for a hefty transfer fee. And the president seems extremely pleased at bringing the ex-Porto winger on board:

"Quaresma can add speed and class on the wings," explained the Nerrazzurri president. "He is another weapon besides Mancini and Figo. We hope he can be useful."

Many pundits believe that the draw against Sampdoria was the reason Quaresma was finally brought in and Moratti gave a quick word about the performance of his team in the match that ended 1-1 at the Stadio Luigi Ferraris.

"It was the result of a difficult match, even if there is no need to think it is a negative one," claimed Moratti. "The match was conducted well in the first half and a little less so after the restart, but this is the italian league and it's very difficult."

When asked if he thought he would have spent so much money on football when he first became Inter president, Moratti smiled, "I had hoped not."

Inter's next match will be at the San Siro when they host Sicilian side Catania, who were victorious over Geona in their match on Sunday afternoon.
