Yeah, Facchetti alive would not be bad. He was a gentleman. I can't believe some (actually a lot of) Juventus fans vomit so much hatred on a person who was "clean". Even "naive" if you like. He was a model for any young football player and that is the reason why Moratti chose him as the chairman of Inter. Just compare the content of the calls of Facchetti and Moggi to Bergamo/Pairetto and you get the huge difference. They are like the white knight/cowboy and the black one.
Massimo De Santis:
"I declare that I have never, and I mean never, talked on the phone with Luciano Moggi and that I have never received an international SIM card from him. I am going to say more. I used to talk regularly with other football team executives. I was in contact with Facchetti and Meani. With Giacinto Facchetti
I had an excellent relationship and I have to admit that in many circumstances he was very obsessive (…). Moratti is well aware of this. I am sorry I have to mention a person who passed away. I am available to make all my phone records public so that everyone will know that these contacts were real. Meani? We got in touch very often and it makes me laugh when he is treated as a delivery boy or a caregiver.”
As for the referee grid, that was the main issue with Moggi..former referees’ chief Bergamo:
“I never refused to talk about the probable grid composition (the grid used to randomly draw the referees and assign them to the different matches – Ed), which anyway needed to be discussed with Pairetto (the referees’ co-chief along with Bergamo – Ed), with all the other executives who made request. The habit of talking about the grid or about the referees to insert in the grid, I confirm once more, involved other team executives as well (among the others Facchetti
and Meanii). I am not aware if Pairetto used to talk with others about this matter. And I point out that the grid composition was an “open secret” because the referees were certainly identifiable by the experts”.
Too bad the Inter wiretaps were released only after the statue of limitations...
