Inter’s owner Steven Zhang has spoken out about how the club’s desire to save money is necessary for long-term success, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media today.

Whilst speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Steven Zhang reiterated the club’s need to raise money this summer from player sales and reduce the wage budget, but stressed that it is in the club’s best interest.

“I believe that as club owners we must think about the good of the club in the long run. It is important to look at the market to find the best resources.”

Steven Zhang also showed that he hopes the fans really treasure the Serie A title that the club won this season, especially given it came at such a difficult time as the COVID-19 pandemic changed lives and emptied stadiums.

“I hope the fans will remember this trophy for the difficult time we won it and for the fact that it came after several years. I hope it’s a sign of the need to be brave and innovative and that hard work always pays off and gives you positive energy, no matter what situation you are in.”

Another interesting suggestion that Steven Zhang made was that the club are still looking for financial and commercial partners to bring more money into the club. If the Nerazzurri managed to do this quickly, it could mean that less money needs to be raised from players ales this year.

“We must always look for commercial and financial partners to support us in this project.”
