Inter already champs for the bookies!?
Last time around, Inter Milan were declared champions two months after the end of the season. This season, they have been sort of awarded the honour with four months to go.
The Italian bookmakers Snai started to pay winnings to those who bet on Inter to win the 2006/07 championship…on January 30th.
The bookies took the decision after Inter scored their 14th consecutive win at Sampdoria and kept their 11 point advantage over Roma.
It is the first time a bookie has “declared” an Italian Bandar Qiu Qiu Online team champions just into the second part of the season. Inter’s chairman Massimo Moratti has warned his players and coaches that the bookies’ decision is totally irrelevant as to who will really win the championship.
“Let Snai believe we are the champions, while we must not forget that the competition is far from over.”
“I could never do as Ronaldo”
Former Inter’s player, today a successful coach, the Argentinian Diego Simeone condemned his ex-teammate Ronaldo for his transfer to Milan.
“People are free to take the decisions as they see fit, but I could not have worn Milan’s shirt,” says Simeone, who won the UEFA’s Cup and a second place in the League alongside Ronaldo in 1998.
Current Estudiantes’ coach remembers another instance of Ronaldo’s “treason”.
“He already did something similar when he signed for Real Madrid after playing for Barcelona. I could never have been Milan’s, Real’s or Roma’s player, since I played for Inter, Atlético and Lazio. That’s the way I think,” claims the feisty Argentinian, who puts loyalty ahead of everything else.
