Inter have dismissed the possibility of bringing Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini back to Giuseppe Meazza as a replacement for Jose Mourinho.
The new European champions are bracing themselves for the departure of losing Mourinho, who is understood to be holding talks with Real Madrid.
Mancini has also been mentioned as a possible Mourinho successor after his successful four-year Inter tenure between 2004 and 2008, but Moratti says he will not be approaching City.
When asked about how he intended to fill the post should Mourinho depart, Moratti told Sky Sport Italia: “I thought about it this morning.
“He (Mancini) is the only one I didn’t think of due to the fact that we have already had him and he is part of our history.
“No, I don’t think that for him this is the path to follow.
“I believe he is happy in England, that he likes living in England and hence, to bring him back in this difficult situation would be offensive.”
Moratti continued: “Both (Mourinho and Mancini) are very different from a character standpoint but they have something in common, courage.
“Both of them are courageous, because Mancini, I have to say, the great thing about Mancini, is that he was courageous and talented as a player and as a person.
“Mourinho has talent and courage as well as a professionalism that is born in his work ethic.”
