Thohir watches Inter defeat

Erick Thohir watched as Inter fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat against Chiasso with Walter Samuel and Zdravko Kuzmanovic injured.

The new President was in the stands at the Pinetina training ground for today’s friendly test against the Swiss side.

The Nerazzurri were unable to score and conceded the decisive goal in the final minute.

To make matters worse, they also saw Samuel and Kuzmanovic limp off during the first half. There was some good news, as Hugo Campagnaro made his comeback after seven games and was able to play the final half-hour.

“I thought it was a good game and I enjoyed myself,” insisted Thohir. “I was particularly impressed by Juan Jesus and Esteban Cambiasso.

“The rapport with the fans is excellent. I had the opportunity to meet Ivan Cordoba, who was here to watch the friendly.”

Thohir also joked about his transfer market plans for the January window.

“Will we sign Messi? Ooh, I’ll talk to the management about it....”
