    Inter: 'Why we spied on Vieri'
    By Football Italia staff
    [​IMG]
    Inter have hit back after being ordered to pay €1m in damages for spying on Christian Vieri and explained why they hired a private investigator to track him.
    The striker won his legal challenge, although he had been seeking €20m, for allegations the club had him followed and wiretapped his phone to build up a dossier of off the field behaviour.
    “We are certainly a little surprised by the sentence and will appeal, as we are convinced we were in the right,” said director general Marco Fassone.
    Vieri’s lawyers have taken the matter to the FIGC, which could in theory see the club penalised in a sporting court as well as a civil one.
    “In sporting justice terms the events in question have already been buried, as the statute of limitations has expired,” added Inter lawyer Fabio Iudica.
    “As if that weren’t enough, the sentence specifies clearly that it in no way affected the career of the player. There are therefore no damages to his image, so we are calm and will block the sentence with an appeal.
    “How can anyone talk about revoking Scudetti when the events were in 1999 and 2004? In any case, the fans can relax as the statute of limitations has expired and I get the feeling we won’t even reach the sporting court.”
    Somewhat controversially, Inter’s lawyer also explained why the club had hired private detectives to track Vieri’s every move.
    “An investigative agency was simply hired to understand if Vieri was behaving within the principle internal rules at Inter.”

    So this is Inter's justification? I mean I realize a professional player is subjected to rules, regulations and whatever but to hire a private investigator tracking his every move? I don't think so.

    I don't think so either, weak excuse but then again what else could we come up with? it's wrong/illegal;
    unless they had serious suspicion that he was violating or acting inappropriately in a way that it could potentially put something at risk or cause damages to the club then there really was no real reason for the private detectives/tapping
