Beppe Marotta: What I hope to bring to Inter Milan…by Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBeppe Marotta is excited to be taking charge of Inter Milan.The former Juventus GM has been named Inter’s sporting chief exec.“As always when changing club, there is something different to get used to, but there is also great optimism that we can achieve our winning targets,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.“We are at a crossroads for the season. There is disappointment over the Champions League elimination, as we wanted to get past the group stage, but we have to look forward with pride and follow the other targets for this campaign.”He also said, “It’s true that Inter are at a more advanced stage than Juve were at the time. The management is well-prepared, the squad is competitive.“I want to bring my experience and contribution to a club that is already in a strong position. I take a slow approach and certainly don’t just barge in, as I can offer my capabilities, but we are in a different situation compared to when I joined Juve in 2010.“There is a big gap right now with Juve, as the changes of ownership prompted a loss of that sense of belonging, but now the Zhang family is proving with action as well as words that they can be trusted by the fans.“It’ll take time, I don’t know if it’s six months, a year or two, but we must look forward with optimism. This is like the first day of school for me. Right now, I am observing.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

Saraswati, the Hindu goddess of music, culture and learning, was worshiped across the state and people were seen carrying clay idols of the deity with a crescent moon on the brow, riding a swan or seated on a lotus. Tiny tots and children decked up in traditional bright-yellow attires signifying ‘Basant Panchami’ – heralding the arrival of spring. Women dressed pretty in saris and boys in kurtas and performing the ‘Anjali’ (offering of flowers with prayers).

Such feasts were held in educational institutions also. “Heartiest greetings to all my brothers and sisters on the occasion of Saraswati Puja,” Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted on the occasion.
