Ex-Inter Owner Erick Thohir: “I Considered Buying Nerazzurri Again After Serie A Title & Antonio Conte’s Exit”

Inter’s former owner Erick Thohir has revealed he was ‘tempted’ to buy the club again after last month’s Serie A title.

The Nerazzurri have become champions of Italy for the first time in more than a decade, but they remain in a very difficult financial position.

Suning have made it clear they intend to cut costs ahead of next season, a move which led to the departure last week of head coach Antonio Conte.

In an interview with YouTuber Deddy Corbuzier today, Thohir admitted: “The temptation was there, especially when Inter won (the Scudetto) and Conte left.”

Despite the attraction to buying Inter, Thohir admitted it would not be a sensible move to take over again after he became Indonesia’s Minister for State Owned Enterprises in 2019.

“I think it would be difficult today, the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing,” Thohir added.

Thohir bought Inter from Massimo Moratti at the end of 2013 and helped stabilise the club’s finances before Suning came in three years later.

Inter’s Chinese owners are now experiencing their most difficult period since purchasing a majority stake in the Nerazzurri, but they seem determined to remain in charge.
