Inter president Massimo Moratti expects Uefa to act after a mass brawl marred their Champions League defeat in Valencia on Tuesday.

Moratti claims Nicolas Burdisso’s nose was broken by Valencia substitute David Navarro during the fracas.

Valencia went through to the last eight on away goals but Navarro appeared to land a punch to the face of Argentine midfielder Burdisso during the melee.

Moratti said: “We will let the Uefa delegate do whatever he has to do.”

Valencia midfielder Carlos Marchena looked to kick out at Burdisso after the [air exchanged words.

The incident sparked the brawl and Navarro, who had not featured in the match, ran on to the middle of the pitch and punched Burdisso.

Several Inter players tried to trip up Navarro as he ran off the pitch and the fighting continued in the tunnel and outside the dressing rooms.

Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini said he was disappointed by the incident.

“A Valencia player went mad when he came on to the pitch and hit Burdisso. He broke Burdisso’s nose.

“Toldo saw the incident and it is possible he went into the Valencia dressing room.

“Players have to learn how to behave on the pitch.”

Valencia’s Italian defender Emiliano Moretti admitted he was surprised at his team-mate’s actions.

“Navarro is a perfectly normal person and I don’t know what would cause him to do such a thing,” he told Italian television.
