Massimo Moratti: Insists Inter Milan have no reason to be concerned

An operation conducted by the Guardia di Finanza (financial police) in collaboration with Neapolitan prosecutors saw police approach 41 different club offices in search of paperwork pertaining to an investigation into alleged tax avoidance.

Reports in Italy suggested police officers had executed search warrants in a series of dawn raids but Moratti maintained there was no "perquisition" at his club's headquarters.

He told inter.it: "No perquisition. It was a request for documents. It was something they've done with about 40 clubs, so I understand how it could happen to us.

"It's clear they must have good reason to go round all the clubs. I don't do their job so we will just have to wait and find out what's going on.

"They've taken documents from Inter that were of interest, just like they've taken them from Napoli and from AC Milan and so on and so on.

"These things happen. There's nothing to worry about."

Juventus, Lazio, Fiorentina, Sampdoria and Parma also received Finanza agents on Wednesday morning, with Bari, Siena and Palermo among the more high-profile Serie B clubs who were asked to hand over documents.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
