Milan: Inter's new owner assures own stadium is still the plan 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.”
