Beppe Marotta says that there are “no worries” for Inter Milan financially despite the ownership saga between Suning and Oaktree Capital.

The Nerazzurri CEO spoke to Italian broadcaster DAZN, via FCInterNews, ahead of this evening’s Serie A clash with Lazio. He addressed the uncertainty around Inter’s ownership.

The last few days have brought a dramatic twist in terms of Inter’s ownership situation.

For a number of weeks, it has looked as though current Nerazzurri owners Suning would refinance their debt to US fund Oaktree Capital via a new loan from another fund, PIMCO.

However, negotiations between Suning and PIMCO appear to have broken down.

There is a lot that is uncertain regarding exactly why that is the case.

But now, the situation is that Suning appear to be set to default on their debt to Oaktree.

This would entail that the US-based fund would be able to take over Suning’s shares in Inter – becoming the club’s new owners.

The question, then, would be what comes next.

Marotta: “No Worries” For Inter Financially Despite Suning Oaktree Drama

It is not exactly certain how the situation at the top of Inter’s ownership might spill over into the club’s plans on the pitch.

But the club’s CEO Marotta reassured that “This is an issue that concerns out shareholders.”

“I can guarantee that the club is very solid,” he continued. “We’re on a path that’s virtuous, and we have no problems.”

“Under Zhang, things have gone very well,” Marotta said.

“Steven and his family love Inter,” he said of the Inter President. “And whatever decision they make will be out of love and respect for the history of Inter.”

“I’m very optimistic that we can keep going the way we have been,” he continued.

Marrotta added that “We have a strong group of players, and there are no worries from a financial standpoint.”

Meanwhile, of the possible effects on the transfer market, Marotta said that “We as the club directors have to know how to be creative in the transfer market.”

“We need courage, and put our faith in both young and experienced players.”

“Over the last two years we’ve had a positive financial balance, but also kept a competitive team,” Marotta noted.

“Courage and hard work are our main characteristics.”
