Zanetti backs Thohir

Inter captain Javier Zanetti has given his backing to incoming owner Erick Thohir, after it was revealed the businessman is likely to take over from Massimo Moratti.

The Indonesian tycoon is expected to take a majority stakehold in the Nerazzurri before the end of the month, and the Argentine defender has claimed it will be good for the club.

“It is important for our large Inter family,” he told Il Mattino. “I’m sure Thohir will do everything possible to make Inter great again.”

The veteran then commented on his recovery from Achilles surgery, which is expected to keep him out until next year.

“It’s all going well. Luckily I am at the last stage of my recovery.

“I am hoping that I can start training with my teammates soon.”
