Former Inter President Erick Thohir has joined the board of English League One side Oxford United.
The Indonesian still owns around 30 per cent of the Nerazzurri, but he has stepped down from the board, with Steven Zhang replacing him as President.
It has been rumoured in recent weeks that he would get involved with Oxford, and that has been confirmed today.
“Oxford United are delighted to welcome Erick Thohir to the board of the football club,” a statement from the English club begins.
“Erick has most recently been Chairman of Inter Milan, and was previously the majority owner of MLS DC United, owner of Philadelphia 76ers basketball, as well as
Chef De Mission of the Indonesia Contingent for the Olympic Games in London 2012. He currently holds positions as a FIBA board member and Chairman of the National Olympic Committee for 2015–2019.
“He joins Chairman Sumrith “Tiger” Thanakarnjanasuth and new directors Horst Geicke and Zaki Nuseibah on the board at the U’s.”
