Paris Saint-Germain defender Milan Skriniar didn’t depart Inter Milan on the best of terms. Usually, when a player goes as a free agent and doesn’t leave a transfer sum, the old club isn’t happy, which is the case with the Serie A side.
Skriniar has been a key figure on PSG’s backline early this 2023-24 season. Nonetheless, over at the Italian club, Giuseppe Marotta, the sporting director of Inter Milan, attacked the Slovakian defender.
The club chief spoke with Gazzetta dello Sport (h/t Paris Fans), where Marotta notes that the player has damaged the club’s history and values. Furthermore, he says that Skriniar didn’t attempt to help find a solution that was happy for everyone involved.
“A player who pretended to want to extend when he was thinking of something else,” Marotta told the Italian media outlet. “I felt a huge disappointment. When a player does not extend his contract, he is not going against his leaders or the president but against the history and value of the club.
“He wronged Inter, not people. He could have extended. We offered him several solutions, even that of setting a release clause that protected him and the demands of Inter. But he always said no.”
Skriniar signed a five-year contract with PSG after his contract with Inter Milan expired in June. The 28-year-old will now look to become that anchor to the defense. PSG will need to count on the veteran now more than ever with the struggles from Marquinhos.
