Despite ownership change at Inter FC, leaving San Siro for good is still part of the plan. Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir assured he will be working towards a move, having already met with mayor to talk about it.
A month ago Indonesian businessmen acquired 70% of shares at Inter FC, becoming major stakeholders. Their leader Erick Thohir already owns DC United (USA) and Persib Bandung (Indonesia), but assured fans he would not treat Inter as a secondary asset.
“I will often be here and, when I’m not, I will wake up at night to watch you,” the Indonesian investor told the squad, according to the Corriere dello Sport. “I will cheer you on and I hope you won’t let me down.”
Thohir then met with Mayor of Milan Giuliano Pisapia to propose building a new stadium in the Rho area, leaving San Siro to Milan.
“It was a more than cordial meeting, even a friendly one, in which there was an exchange of opinions on sport in Milan and the future development of the city,” explained Mayor Pisapia.
“It was the first step in a dialogue that will continue soon. I can say we set out a joint pathway that will allow us to collaborate for the good of Milan and those who chose our city for an important investment.”
