'Suning, 5 year plan for Inter'

President Erick Thohir announces a 'five-year investment plan' laid out together with Suning to return Inter to her glories.

The Nerazzurri have ratified the club's sale and nominated a new board of directors today, and the Indonesian tycoon was asked to discuss what this means for the Biscione's future.

“We have a grand history and we grew up as brothers of the whole world,” Thohir told the Press. “This is the first time that a Chinese club becomes the majority share-holder of a European club.

“We enjoy a world-wide fame, but we will respect the origins of this club. In order to remain competitive we must be able to invest, and that's what Suning guarantees.

“I thank Suning for having believed in me and my team, we'll bring Inter back to her former glories together.

“We sealed a five-year plan to let us be always present in Asia. A glorious team like Inter needs a global agent like Suning to return to her glories.

“I'm enthusiastic about this new partnership. Ever since I've been Inter's president I have been sustained by Massimo Moratti, who followed in the footsteps of his father Angelo and always did everything for this club.

“We worked together and we'll keep doing that. Yesterday evening, over dinner, he confirmed that he wants to keep supporting this team, because he's part of the Nerazzurri family.

“I'm also grateful to the tifosi for what you do for the team. Without you, we would be nothing. You are the soul of the club.

“We'll build an ever-stronger Inter. Forza Inter!”
