Mazzarri was wrong for Inter

As Inter visit Torino, Football Italia’s Chief Correspondent Richard Hall looks back at the Walter Mazzarri years and analyses where it all went wrong.

It’s October 2014 and Inter Coach Walter Mazzarri is talking to the Press before a defeat to Fiorentina. “I’d tell you what is happening within the team right now, but whatever I say will be interpreted as an excuse. I have been through this many times before. Believe me the less I say, the better.”

A month later and he was gone, with few bidding him bon voyage. It was the first dismissal of his career. As he prepares to welcome his former club on the Torino bench, there will be no love lost from either side.

Negotiations are believed to be at an advanced stage and could be finalised within two to three weeks.

Zanetti: 'Inter start new era'

Javier Zanetti believes Inter are just starting out a new great era and will eventually partner Mauro Icardi with Lautaro Martinez.

The heroes of the 2010 Treble got together for the Festival dello Sport event, after which Vice-President Zanetti spoke to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“That Inter and this current squad are in two very different situations. We were reaching the apex of an era. Being back in the Champions League is already a starting point, but we have what it takes to do well,” said the Argentine.

Suning to buy out Thohir?

Suning Group is reportedly in talks to buy Erick Thohir’s 31 percent stake in Inter.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the two parties are ‘negotiating with great insistence’ so a deal can be closed as soon as possible.

The newspaper explains Suning wants to complete its purchase by October 26, when the club plan to hold a shareholders’ meeting.

However, an agreement has yet to be found and talks would be paused on Wednesday so the Nerazzurri can concentrate on their Champions League clash with PSV.

Inter make €18m loss

It’s reported Inter posted an €18m loss for the 2017-18 season, but they’ll meet their Financial Fair Play obligations.

The Nerazzurri held a board meeting today to approve the financial statements up to June 30, and ANSA reports an €18m loss.

That is an improvement on the €24m loss last year, and the Beneamata board also believe they have complied with Financial Fair Play.

Spending on infrastructure and the youth sector are excluded, so Inter just need to break even without those costs.

Thohir set for English takeover?

Inter President Erick Thohir is reportedly close to buying a majority share in English club Oxford United.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Thohir is ‘a step away’ from purchasing Oxford, who are 23rd in EFL League One after six defeats from their opening nine games.

It could also mean the Indonesian will sell his 31-percent stake in Inter to Suning Group, with Calciomercato.com expecting the transfer to take place ‘by the end of October’.
