Inter terminated Michael Williamson's (Thohir's right-hand man) contract, its CEO will inherit responsibilities
“He was the main man of Erick Thohir who came to Inter in 2014 as the majority shareholder of the club. Since yesterday, Michael Williamson is no longer an Inter executive after choosing the path of contract termination with Inter.”
This was reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport which then explained that “Williamson was the chief strategy officer of the club whose boss now is Chinese giant Suning. During the short period at Inter, Williamson was involved in the stadium situation, the restructuring of San Siro and the researching of a new training center for the club.”
According to the pink newspaper, Inter will not replace him on the depth chart of the organization. Rather, Inter CEO, Alessandro Antonello, will inherit directly the responsibilities.
“Antonello will continue the discussion about the stadium – at the end of July, an agreement was reached with the City and Milan to renovate it for 15 million euros – in addition to searching for a new area for the club’s new training facility (Williamson failed in this aspect). There are many areas that the club will look at, it is possible to proceed gradually and the primary objective is to bring all the youth teams (U16, U17, Primavera etc…) together in one facility.”
