Financial journalist Luciano Mondellini: "Stronger ownership, solid management and no more settlement agreement, Inter will have more chances to compete"
To analyze the departure of Erick Thohir and the arrival to the world of Inter of investment fund LionRock Capital, Radio Sportiva interviewed Luciano Mondellini, a journalist of Milano Finanza.
“At Inter comes an investment fund that is already a partner of Suning and it is a win-win situation for all: the club now belongs 100% to the Chinese ownership and Erick Thohir which made a financial profitable operation. Those years under Thohir were difficult because the best result was fourth place, there were great financial difficulties and the club had to deal with the constraints of UEFA FFP. Now, the hope is that, with a stronger ownership, a solid management with the arrival of Marotta and leaving UEFA FFP (settlement agreement), Inter will have more chances to compete in the league and return to the top of European football.”
Do you think soon Inter will have a Milanese representative on the board?
“Many financial investors here are Inter supporters and therefore they are very close to the club. It is difficult to say whether Chinese ownership would like something more Milanese, perhaps with a small percentage to have a stronger footing in the city. At the moment, Sung has a long-term project for the Nerazzurri.”
