Inter’s Sporting Director Piero Ausilio spoke on the matter of Financial Fair Play at the conference earlier tonight: “We thought Financial Fair Play would be more mobile, but we discovered that is not the case. It’s very strict, at least for us. That does not mean we can’t construct a competitive squad, though. We thought that we had overcome this obstacle. We are pragmatic because we want to stay in line with the commitments we made. The Coach is fully convinced of the project and we hope to reach the Champions League, which is where Inter belong.”

    We should do everything in our power to get full ownership of San Siro or build a new stadium. This is a crucial factor in making serious revenue that would allow us to keep up with the “big boys” as far as spending.

    • Aditya Das

      That will mean another few seasons of austerity.. dont think anyone can handle that at this moment.. maybe after we have gained some more reputation..

  • Azzkikr

    Its amazing how they “thought they had overcome it”.

    How can they not know whats going on financially and how FFP works? How can it come as a surprise? Just how incompetent are they? Just another indication that the management have no clue whats going on.

    Tbh it sounds more like a lame excuse for failing to attract any top targets this mercato.

    It is very difficult to compare Inter and clubs like City and PSG because , PSG in the signing of Neymar made a joke of PSG by paying Neymar an indorsement of 224 mil, so technically PSG itself signed Neymar as a free agent, because he paid it himself.
    If Suning tried that they would evade FFP only to walk straight into problems with the Chinese government. So within the parameters we have done reasonably well.

    • Fam

      What do you mean by problems with the Chinese government? So how about the case of Milian?

    To all inter fans until now ausilio and sapatini did almost good and if they reach agreement with sissoko and a Def that will be very nice specially inter are playing no UCL

  • Binto Baggio

    I think Spaletti, skriniar, valero, and vecino is the best accusitions so far by aussilio and sabatini. However i think most of us cannot hide the dissapointment when they sold banega, medel, and murillo so cheap. But a man must do what it needed, and we need to sell banega, medel, and murillo as quick as possible, and the price we get is unavoidable.

    This is not sprint race this is marathon race… you need at least 2 player in one position with equal quality… yes inter won again rome but you see 70 minutes before icardi goal… 2 times hit woodwork 1 again bar 2 times saves from dalbert.. if VAR used in that game rome have pinalty cause skriniar “hit” perroti not a ball. So far so good but how long valero will play… in rome he lost stamina… so don’t say me cry like baby… if miranda injury inter defense will suffer.. how abaout perisic and icardi in same time…. tic toc bell is ringing

    • casperv

      I didn’t say you we´re crying like a baby. But we have a hole day today to bring in a defender and maybe a midfielder and a bvack up to Candreva (Karamoh is flying in as we speak ) and then we´re good. Ranno seems to be staying after all and Ansaldi plus Ambros knows how to play in the center as well..
      Borja hasn’t got the stamina to play in teh center for a hole game that´s why I´d play him as a regista with Vecino and MArio in front of him doing the running. But he´s the best technically, midfielder we´d had for YEARS!

  • casperv

    Think Ausilio has brought in some very intelligent and super interesting players that clearly have made our team stronger despite the FFP agreement that runs until next summer.
    I think Ausilio has done a great job – if Karamoh and Mustafi/mangala joins: a superb job without loosing any of our stars!

    • HaMiD

      Exactly and most of people here and in FB moaning just like a spoiled kid. So far we have a very intelligent mercato and I am very happy with.

      • Stefano

        I think it is two faced:
        Incredibly intelligent and financially effective.
        Also incredibly poor.
        I mean …we still don’t have a CD so we can’t get rid of Rano.
        It would have been fun this time to have an intelligent mercato for once..but ALSO a complete, abundant mercato.
        Well…too bad.
        I will have to be happy with effectiveness and financial sanitty for now.
        Maybe that’s the way we have to have a serious future.
        I won’t complain too much.

      1)–That two fiorentina players were demanded by Spaletti himself and they joined easily because Fiorentina owner is selling the club. Ausilio paid release clause of one and paid 6m for aging player who doesnt wanted to remain in Fiorentina.
      2)– Skrinar was targeted by the new youth assistant (forgot his name). So he went there with cash and one of the promising player.
      3)– Dalbert is Sabatini type player so you can sense that he was his recommendation. Cancelo is already injured so no judging yet.
      4)– Mr. Ausilo dont know what depth means in football or perhaps he is confident that nothing worse will happen and even if something does happens then he wont be sack like the past previous years in which he brought mediocre players and now have trouble selling them.
      5)– Ausilio best friends Darling Fasone who was the protagonist in acquiring Kdog scouted by mirabelli are in BBilan now and see how they are struggling despite spending 200m+.
      Conclusion= Without Spaletti and Sabatini , Guru Ausilo would have done miracles in the transfer market and once again protected Inter from the harsh and cruel CL monsters.

        Not sure you can say Milan are struggling. They got past EL quals and have 2 wins out of 2 games in the A.

        • Naves

          They won against ten men crotone for like entire match and they were lucky to even win against bologna at home.
          Dont tell me about some unknown Macedonian clubs especially if the entire club cost lower than one milan player.
          PS: Borini is leading their line. LOL

          • John

            Sure, but 2-0 is 2-0. Can’t say they’re struggling, at least results-wise. Hopefully they start dropping points.

          • Naves

            surprisingly I replied to you twice and I get this message.
            “Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by Sempreinter.”

      • Playmaker

        well spoken

      • stark

        I doubt it’s a case of Milan struggling more as them still being a squad not a team , a true test for both Milan and Inter is not winning because Inter did go on a long winning streak under Pioli and Milan managed to beat Crotone last year, a true test will be seeing the response to defeat ,that will indicate if we are on track or not

        • Naves

          Actually you are right. I doubt spalleti will let his team crumble as we saw against Roma and I cant say the same for Montela.

    • Sean Patrick

      Ausilio has not done horribly but he has made some super blunders. Kondogbia was one.

      • casperv

        But he is getting the money in – more or less now, the same with Gabi… besides Kondogbia was considered one of the most talented players in Europe back then

  • anonimac

    Sometimes it seems that Inter is the only club ffp is applied to. Ffs, look what City and P$G are doing…

    • casperv

      PSG isn’t following the rules – we are, and city have a much higher income from tv money, sponsorship deals, merchandise sales and stadium income than us.
      We are following the rules and don’t want to overspend on troublemaker Keita or one-season superb sub Schick. Not when we have Pinamonti in the squad – on of the most taletend italians at his age! Plus a super talented argentine striker arriving in January as well.

      • John

        City broke the rules too. 40M/year sponsorship deal with Ethihad is a form of cheating, not to mention the fines they got hit with.

        • casperv

          City broke the rules a couple of years ago and were punished heavely with a huge fine.
          About the sponsorship deal: FFP is very strict on owners doing sponsorship deals with their clubs and they cannot do sponsorship deals with their own clubs bigger than a certain percentage of the club´s income in merchandising, TV-money etc. I can´t remember how much it is – but it isn’t much more than 20-30% of the clubs income.

          • John

            I understand that in principle. However, when Qatar Tourism Authority can supply 200M/yr to a club owned by Qatar Sports Investments, such policy is neither strict nor enforced in reality.

          • casperv

            Agree and everyone in the world agrees with you in that – hopefully Uefa will step in and punish PSG for it

      • 1nteristi

        Why it is ok for psg to not follow the rule and we does bro..and whos this super talented argentine striker thats arriving in jan?

        • ROGUE LW

          Colidio

        • ezekiel

          psg actually have a big revenue. psg and man city are owned by government(qatar and UAE), inter owned by a private company so there’s no comparison there.. and every club have sign different contract with UEFA, the one that thohir sign maybe the worse. but can’t blame him. inter was in very bad shape financially..

        • casperv

          It isn’t okay and I hope Uefa does something to punish them. To let the owners of PSG transfer 222 mil euros to the bank account of Neymars and let HIM buy him self out of his contract is simply bending the rules in a way I´d call cheating!

      • Sean Patrick

        1. PSG’s major income is not from any of that because minus CL (which is only 30m per year) their tv deal is less than ours. They have bogus “commercial deals” which is basically the owner pumping money into the club.

        2. PSG doesn’t own their stadium, just like us. And their attendances are lower than Inter’s.

    • Fam

      Don’t you understand till now? It is just an excuse

    • ezekiel

      city and psg has a big revenue, even after they buy neymar they still have surplus. and city and psg are owned by government(qatar and UAE), sunning is a private company so no comparison there. every club have sign different contract with UEFA. and sadly the one that thohir sign, maybe the worse.. LOL

    • anis

      Yp

  • FCINTER

    So, after selling banega, medel, and Murillo for peanuts we are still under strict ffp rules? What were you thinking then, when you sold them for dirt cheap..

    • Faizin Setiadi

      exactly, what were they doing back then before deciding to sell them very cheap? They misread the script? mistranslated? Inter management at its best! Bravo~

    • casperv

      We got what they are worth: no one wanted the players and Medel was 30 years old and not a big name player, Banega sucked at Inter and had lost his position in the team plus arrived in a free so getting more than what we got was never gonna happen. Murillo was brought in for 8 mil so we made a profit on jimmy too and he too had lost his place in the starting line up last season and wanted to move on but no one wanted him.
      A club that finish 7th cannot demand shit loads of money for players that were not even in their starting 11 all of last season and that had arrived on a low transfer fees.
      Besides, the transfer fee is not always the right way to judge a player’s value just look at Borja who arrived for seven mil and is our by far best midfielder

    • Wruce Bayne

      suning should sack him, he cant sell every year we’re doing the same mistakes

      • FCINTER

        Yep, this guy is one of the worst sporting directors in Italy. Takes too long to negotiate a price, and then when players leave for other clubs, he is left with bottom feeders. This guy is a problem for us. Let sabatini be the only one responsible for transfers.

        • Wruce Bayne

          i completly agreee with you, imagine if this ausilio work for monaco he would sell mbappe for loan with 10 mil obligation
