Inter Star Mauro Icardi’s Wife Set to Go to Court With Ex-Husband and Udinese Striker Maxi Lopez

?Wanda Nara – the wife of Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi – is set to be sued by ex-husband and current Udinese hitman Maxi Lopez, after rumours surfaced that she allegedly posted his mobile phone number on social media.

The pair are now set for a fierce court dispute – and not for the first time – following their divorce back in 2013 after Nara began seeing Lopez’s former teammate, Icardi.

Now, according to reports surfaced by ?The Sun, Lopez – who played with Icardi at Sampdoria – has filed a lawsuit against Nara for what he claims was an act of “revenge” used to damage his “reputation”, by supposedly posting not just his phone number, but various other pieces of personal information on social media.

However, Nara’s legal team have denied Lopez’s claims and were quick to point out that Lopez is currently involved in a range of separate court cases regarding child support.

Reported by ?The Sun, Nara’s legal representative said: “Wanda Nara is absolutely convinced that she can prove her innocence. On the contrary, it’s worth noting that Maxi Lopez is involved, both in Italy and Argentina, in numerous court cases.

“Wanda Nara has made numerous charges against Lopez for failing to pay maintenance for their children since January 2017 for a total figure of over €130,000. The only victims of Lopez’s behaviour are his children and Nara, who is only guilty of trying to guarantee the rights of her children are respected.

“We have no doubt that any action taken by Lopez represents exclusively the vain and desperate attempt to not pay the sum the law stated he must give towards his family.”

The court case is set to take place in Milan on the 22nd November.


Picking the Best Potential Inter Milan Lineup to Face Hellas Verona on Monday

?Inter Milan travel to Hellas Verona on Monday after their midweek 3-2 victory over Sampdoria sent them temporarily top of Serie A.

However, Napoli maintained the chase by beating Genoa by the same scoreline on Wednesday to return top and the Gli Azzurri have a chance to go five points clear if they can beat Sassuolo on Sunday.

Here’s who Luciano Spalletti could pick to ensure Inter keep up the title race.


  • Handanovic


An ever present in goal for Inter, the Slovenian will be looking to keep up his good run of form after a great display against Napoli to keep a clean sheet last week.?


  • D'Ambrosio


  • Miranda


  • Škriniar


  • Nagatomo


Spalletti is likely to stick with the same back four that played against Sampdoria.

New signings Dalbert and Joao Cancelo still struggle to get a look in at full back as Danilo D’Ambrosio and Yuto Nagatomo continue to perform consistently, whilst fellow new signing Skriniar continues to impress at centre back.


This game is likely to come a few days too early for Marcelo Brozovic? who remains out with a muscular issue, meaning Borja Valero will play in a more advanced role with his defensive duties filled by Roberto Gagliardini.

An attacking trio of Antonio Candreva, Valero and Ivan Perisic should give Inter’s captain up top plenty of service.


  • Icardi


?Not much more needs to be said about who will be leading Inter’s attack, arguably one of the hottest strikers on the planet right now with an incredible 11 goals in 10 league games, the ever-impressive Mauro Icardi.

Inter’s captain will look to continue his own personal goal streak whilst also leading Inter to their eleventh game unbeaten.


Juventus Boss Allegri Names Inter and Napoli as Main Rivals for Serie A Title After AC Milan Win

Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri believes that the Old Lady only have two challengers to their Serie A title this season – despite the upcoming threats of Roma and Lazio. 

Following a 2-0 win over Milan at the San Siro, Allegri said: “Napoli are in extraordinary form right now, we have to make sure we’re up there battling with them and Inter in April,” dismissing the threat of Roma and Lazio who are just four points off the pace. 


As quoted by Football Italia, Allegri said: “It was a good performance both attacking and defending, we won a head-to-head clash and now prepare for Tuesday, aiming to secure qualification in the Champions League against Sporting.

“We struggled in the first 10 minutes, as we kept passing it short and not seeking the forwards, as Milan were pressing us. Mario Mandzukic and Kwadwo Asamoah did well to track back and block Suso. He is a crucial player who is decisive for Milan with assists and goals, so we did well to neutralise him.”

Allegri had clearly identified Suso, who has scored five goals for Milan so far this season, as a threat. As a left-footer on the right wing, Suso consistently looks to cut inside from the right flank, a preference which the Italian boss neutralised – making this move ineffective for the Spaniard. 

Milan couldn’t neutralise the threat of Higuain, however, as the Argentine scored a brace and proved to be the difference on Saturday night. “This must not be an ending point for Higuain,” said Allegri, “He is in great shape at the moment and needs to improve it more than maintain it, but as always that’s an issue of mentality. 


“Gonzalo [Higuain] must believe in himself much more, because he has extraordinary potential. Every now and then he rests on his laurels, which is not good for him or for us. He must demand more from himself.” 

Beating Milan took Juve top of the table for now, with Inter and Napoli set to play on Sunday – threatening the Bianconeri’s seventh successive Scudetto. With Milan’s title challenge pretty much out of the question, the Serie A title remains open with so many great teams looking to knock Juve off their perch. 


Newcastle Boss Rafa Benitez Claims Inter Milan Didn’t Listen to Him Upon Being Sacked

Back in 2010, there was an unattainable task of succeeding the great Jose Mourinho at Inter Milan. Many managers were linked to the potential job, however, it was Rafa Benitez who was chosen to take on the reigns at the San Siro. 

Benitez has controversially claimed that he was proven right for his criticism of the Milan side as he stated: “They didn’t listen to me”, in his short stint with them.


Benitez surprisingly lasted only six months in the Italian capital and won two trophies in that time. However, it paled in comparison to what Mourinho had done in the season prior, winning the treble of the Champions League, Scudetto and Coppa Italia.

Speaking on what had gone wrong in Italy, Benitez has stated: 

“I did will two trophies in just six months at Inter, then got as many with Napoli. I don’t regret those times,

“It’s fair to say I didn’t enjoy Inter as much as Napoli. I almost never got the opportunity to look around the city of Milan. I lived outside the city and the squad wasn’t doing very well in Serie A.

“Inter had in their squad 12 players over the age of 30 and there was the need to change, but (then-President Massimo) Moratti didn’t listen to me.

“The club made that revolution eventually, but only after I had already left. Now, with Chinese investors, they can fight it out with Juventus and Napoli for the Scudetto.

“I’m not sure the level of Serie A has improved overall now, but there are certainly three or four teams that are much stronger, partly due to the influx of money from abroad.

“Money makes the difference, both to sign good players and above all to avoid them leaving.”

Inter were in a decline after the Mourinho era, as was expected, and with Juventus and Milan both struggling to find their feet, Benitez was expected to guide Inter to glory for the coming years. 

It is clear that Benitez had identified the issue as being at the fault of the board for not allowing him to recruit younger, fresher talent. 

However, the run of lacklustre results for Inter prevented Benitez from ever having any significant impact in the Italian capital.
