Happy one-year anniversary Suning!
On June 7 of last year, Suning officially bought the majority shares of Inter at 68.55%, leaving 31.05% to Erick Thohir. The one-year anniversary of Suning kicks off with the arrival of Ausilio and Spalletti in China to discuss the future plans.
It was not an easy year for the Chinese owners as they were constantly working on getting new sponsors to help with UEFA Financial Fair Play, new training kits and the permanence of Steven Zhang who in fall moved to Milan, working 18-20 hours a day in order to put Inter back on top.
The sporting world is something that Suning is not familiar with and despite a lot of efforts, the results of Inter did not meet expectation (even Jiangsu Suning, Chinese Super League team, is in crisis). The Chinese owners remain committed in bringing Inter back to where its belong, the top of Italian and European football and with a new coach in Spalletti and new director in Sabatini, all will come together to build a better Inter for the future.
