Thohir plans new Inter stadium

Erick Thohir continues to charm the Inter fans and pledged to invest in the city with plans for a new stadium.

The new President took over from Massimo Moratti this week and has been attending various functions, including yesterday’s friendly game with Swiss side Chiasso.

“I will often be here and, when I’m not, I will wake up at night to watch you,” the Indonesian investor told the squad, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

“I will cheer you on and I hope you won’t let me down.”

Thohir then met with Mayor of Milan Giuliano Pisapia to propose building a new stadium in the Rho area, leaving San Siro to Milan.

“It was a more than cordial meeting, even a friendly one, in which there was an exchange of opinions on sport in Milan and the future development of the city,” explained Mayor Pisapia.

“It was the first step in a dialogue that will continue soon. I can say we set out a joint pathway that will allow us to collaborate for the good of Milan and those who chose our city for an important investment.”

Meanwhile, Moratti added that he turned down the role of President in order to become Honorary President for a particular reason.

“I believe we’ve chosen a role for me that will not be a hindrance.”
