Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio has emphasised the recovery Inter has made after a turbulent summer of losses, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media today.
Speaking during an interview with Sky Sport, via FCInternews, Piero Ausilio explained how everyone at the club was aware that they had a huge battle on their hands to keep Inter competitive for the coming season.
“We looked at each other and told each other that it would be a huge mountain to climb, but the beauty of this sport is that there is immediately an opportunity.”
Inter lost Antonio Conte when it first became clear how much financial trouble the club was in and how that would affect the transfer window.
The club then had to sell Achraf Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku to bigger teams so that they could keep afloat, whilst being unable to invest much of that money back into the squad.
Piero Ausilio clearly feels that not many other clubs could have health with that level of impact on their sporting operations.
“The situation was painted worse than the reality, we cannot give up at the first difficult moment. Losing these elements, in addition to Eriksen, could have killed anyone sportingly, but not us.”
Inter now sit top of Serie A and are in the Champions League Round of 16.
