Massimo Moratti: Questioned officials following defeat to Atalanta

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has been referred to the Italian Football Federation's (FIGC) disciplinary commission for questioning the impartiality of match officials in Sunday's Serie A defeat to Atalanta.

Moratti criticised referee Andrea Gervasoni and his assistants for acting "without good faith" after seeing Atalanta recover from 3-1 down to win 4-3 at San Siro after German Denis was awarded a controversial penalty.

Inter's official website published his comments alongside those of television presenter Paolo Bonolis, who specifically accused the authorities of favouring city rivals AC Milan.

A statement published on figc.it today read: "After examining the statements published on April 8 and 9, 2013, the federal prosecutor has referred Inter president Massimo Moratti and his club to the disciplinary commission.

"Moratti has been referred for publishing offensive statements and judgements in the media regarding the reputation, good faith and impartiality of the match officials and consequently the consistency of the referees' work in the championship, therefore prejudicing the reputation of organisations operating within the FIGC, as well as the prestige and credibility of the federation.

"Inter are referred for having direct responsibility for the violation ascribed to the president and the legal representatives of Massimo Moratti's club."

Moratti had told inter.it: "You only have to look at the way this season has gone, especially regarding us. When people want to hit you, they do it anyway.

"Even when there's no doubt - because there was nothing there - a penalty is given against us. We haven't been given a penalty for 21 games."
