An ‘extremely proud’ Steven Zhang assures sporting performance remains the priority for Inter but also wants to make them ‘a leader in technology’.
Zhang was named Inter’s new President on Friday during their annual shareholders’ meeting, and the Suning Group heir is described by the Nerazzurri as ‘one of the most influential young business leaders in China’.
“Today, I am extremely proud to lead this club into a new era,” the 26-year-old [picture, left] told the club’s official website.
“I feel the responsibility to satisfy the passion of the millions of fans all over the world and, I am more than ready to accept the challenge of President in this, the 110th year of this prestigious club.
“We will continue to make the sports performance the number one focus of our attention, and make sure the team has all the best support necessary to compete and be successful at the very highest levels of both the international and domestic game.
“Off the pitch, we will make Inter as strong a company as it is on the pitch. We must build strong skills in the commercial and marketing areas and further strengthen the management team.
“Meanwhile, we will keep enlarging the scope of our business globally. And we will continue to explore the possibilities of digital management and digital communications, to make Inter a leader in the field of technology.
“Also, we must remember that Inter isn’t just about football and what happens on the field. We will continue to uphold the sporting values of honest competition, fair play and sportsmanship.
“Together with our stakeholders, we will spread positive energy and messages to all our fans and society as a whole.
“I believe that with your help, I am now ready to take the next steps. Together we can take this Club forward into a new era of success.”
