Investor: 'Moratti is Inter President'

Roslan Roeslani Perkasa, one of Erick Thohir’s business partners, explained how Inter will develop and keeping Massimo Moratti as President.

Roeslani spoke to an Indonesian Inter Club just days ahead of the contracts that will officially move 70 per cent of the side’s shares into their hands.

“Thohir wants to stay at Inter for a long time. He likes the history and the Nerazzurri family, promising to make an even stronger club.

“We will officially become owners from December 15. There will be eight members of the Board of Directors: Thohir, me, Handy Soetedjo and another two of our associates, plus three people chosen by Moratti.

“There is no option to buy back the club, while the 70 per cent of our shares cover Inter’s assets, including the training complex.

“We will sign from one to three players in order to finish in the top three in Serie A, then build an Inter Campus and some Inter Stores in Indonesia.”

The investor also spoke about captain Javier Zanetti, who is about to make his comeback from injury.

“As soon as he retires from football, he will become part of the directorial staff. Moratti will remain President for another year or two, then someone between myself, Handy and Erick will take this role.”

An intriguing comment regarded director Marco Branca, who seems to be blamed for recent disappointing results.

“Branca? He will be evaluated for having sold some potentially excellent young players. We want a mix of youth and experience.

“In mid-November we’ll me in Milan to meet Moratti and discuss the transfer market.”
