Thohir: 'Sale makes Inter stronger'

President Erick Thohir confirmed “we decided to sell the majority of Inter shares to make the club stronger” with Suning Commerce Group.

The initial negotiations had been to buy 20 per cent of the stock, but quickly developed to 60-70 per cent.

“Inter are in good hands,” Thohir told the Corriere dello Sport.

“We decided to sell the majority of Inter shares to make the club stronger through a strategic partner like Suning, who make a big impact in China.

“With Massimo Moratti we worked well and made the club stronger. We have a management structure of a top European club, something that not everyone in Italy has.

“The objective is to build a global Inter, but at the same time one that does not lose its values. It has to be a club that can help Italian football grow to compete with the most important leagues in Europe.”
