Inter Milan and Fiorentina played out a nine-goal thriller over the weekend, in which the Viola eventually downed Inter 5-4. 

However, not everyone was entertained by the match, and the Nerazzurri chiefs felt the need to apologise to fans for the defeat, despite the club being sat in seventh with little left to play for in the league. 

 

Via Inter's official website, the club released a statement which included: ' “The manner of the defeat at Fiorentina was unacceptable for our supporters both in Italy and abroad, and we are determined to put this right.

"Our target remains to finish as high as possible in Serie A and qualify for European competition, by giving the maximum in every match, and for the players to represent the club's colours with honour and pride as befits the history and tradition of this great club."

Inter have been purchased by the Chinese Suning Holdings Group, and the owners clearly have ambitious plans to restore the side back to its former glory at the pinnacle of European football. 

 

Rivals AC Milan were also recently purchased by Chinese investors, and both Milan clubs will be looking to spend big in the summer. 

Inter Milan are reportedly looking to try and tempt Antonio Conte back to Italy with an enormous contract offer, although the Chelsea boss is set to be offer a new deal at Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
