Inter legend Beppe Bergomi has said that the absence of owners Suning weighs heavily on the players at the club, according to a report in the Italian broadcast media.

Speaking during an interview with Radio Nerazzurra, via FCInternews, Beppe Bergomi talked about the perceived ‘absence’ of the Suning ownership over the day-to-day running of the club.

He feels that it is something that does affect the players and the poor form that is being shown right now is partly to do with that.

Whilst president Steven Zhang is very visual at the club, there is almost no communication around the future and the seemingly troubled financial state of the company in China.

“It’s been three years now that the ownership has been absent. And this weighs on the players, it’s something that’s bound to affect them.”

He then turned his focus to the fact that the fans attending the games at San Siro seem to be quieter than they used to be and they need to get back cheering and not booing players such as Roberto Gagliardini.

“But the fans must go back to cheering loudly: there are always a lot of people at the stadium, but the charge is missing. Even booing Gagliardini, who is the only defensive midfielder we have, every time is not good. We all have to give a hand to get out of this situation.”
