Moratti to Remain as Inter Milan President

October 25, 2013

Inter Milan President Massimo Moratti is looking likely to remain in his position of the Serie A giants despite the club’s takeover by Indonesian media man Erick Thohir.

Thohir and two partners purchased 70% of the club from Moratti last week, order but his minority share in Inter could allow him to remain the club’s President.

Moratti told Inter Channel: “When you’re so used to a certain role, bronchi it’s hard to take on a different one.  We’re talking with these people and they are kindly asking me to remain as president. We’ll see.

“I don’t think I have any right to say that I will be remaining forever because Inter have a great history and they must continue to have one with whomever has the good intentions to take ownership of this club.”

Moratti also expressed his gratitude to Tohir and said he believed the club was in good hands, despite the Indonesian saying he would only be in Italy four times a year.

“Thohir is a relaxed, kind and uncomplicated person,” Moratti said. “He’s ambitious and works hard. He has a group behind him who can give a lot. Anyway, it was hard to find an Italian partner because nobody stepped forward. This way, the number of fans throughout the world will grow.

“They may not have lived 50 years of Inter history, but when you are president, you soon become a fan, given all the suffering. The only potential difficulty for them is being distant, but they are Interisti and are sensitive enough to understand what this club is.”
