Zhang: 'Inter more than a club'

President Steven Zhang claims “Inter aren’t just a football team, they’re also an essence, a brand and a philosophy.”

The businessman was speaking at the China International Import Expo, where he was asked about what it meant to be Nerazzurro.

Suning Group bought Inter in 2016, with Zhang promoted to the role of President last year.

“We have built a team of great value,” explained the 27-year-old.

“Everyone here corresponds to the culture, appeal and requirements of the club. They’re willing to work hard to create business value.

“We share common interests. Inter aren’t only a football team, they’re also an essence, a brand and a philosophy.

“The people here are willing to give their all. Inter was the first top-level European club to land in China, back in 1975. This is a very romantic story.

“Now Suning has joined Inter and will continue this story.”

The Beneamata are second in Serie A after 10 wins from 12 games and will continue their fight for the title when they visit Torino on November 23.
