Thohir weighs in on Italian football and Inter’s transfer market strategy


At an event regarding his financial empire, Thohir was interviewed by “The Serie A is often overshadowed by Spanish or English football, but I prefer the Italian football. In Spain only two clubs dominate, Real and Barçelona, while in the Premier League there are more teams that are competitive and everybody is financially healthy. But if I choose to buy a club, I do that for the illustrious name and for the history. I can’t buy a club without these two feature, it would be a defeat. Why, for example, should I buy West Ham? Inter has a great history and it was a great opportunity, they had the right characteristics to be a great purchase”.
“I know that Inter need wingers, on both flanks. An Indonesian player? I don’t think they are ready to play at the standards a big team like Inter requires. For now, I am not think about bringing Indonesian players to Inter, maybe I’ll acquire some U-16 so they can grow in the Inter youth system and then become pro. I think it’s better to test them at DC United. The transfer market? When somebody writes about this or that player, he says something that is not true. The transfer market is closed and I never talked about it. Before I decide to buy somebody, I have to confront with Moratti and the coach”.
