Former Inter CEO Ernesto Paolillo believes that current Nerazzurri owners Suning must find a way to invest in the club in spite of their problems or else be forced to sell.

Speaking to Italian news outlet Calciomercato.com, Paolillo gave the view that the Chinese company still have to deal with their financial problems and the regulatory situation in China in order to make their ownership of Inter viable.

Suning’s debt and liquidity problems are widely reported, with the pandemic creating major issues for their parent company and other subsidiaries.

The Nerazzurri have had revenue issues of their own caused by the pandemic, which the owners have not been able to ameliorate.

Paolillo believes that there must be a plan in place to improve the conditions and put money into the club, as the current way that it is operating is not sustainable.

“I believe that if the problems at the companies in which Zhang has invested, including Evergrande, are solved, then he could invest in the club to keep them competitive,” he said.

However, he also noted that “These kinds of opportunities are currently blocked by China. If opportunities of this kind are not created, then there is no other way forward than selling.”

He went on about former Nerazzurri coach Jose Mourinho, stating that “He has remained very attached to Inter. He is the same has ever, but today’s Roma are not comparable to Inter in 2010.”

About the proposal by Inter and AC Milan to build a new stadium, Paolillo explained that “Two great teams needing to respect FFP and their owners must have as much revenue as posible.”

“This cannot be the case without an adequate stadium,” he went on, “as well as the exploitation of television rights and all the events linked to the stadium.”

“All these sources of income make foreign teams rich,” he added, “whereas this is not currently possible for the Milan sides.”

“Not building a new stadium, or not allowing it to be built, is a crime,” he stated, “you deprive the clubs of the opportunity to compete economically, socially, and culturally.”

Paolillo also added that the proposal of two separate stadiums for the teams is “Not economically sustainable.”
