Thomas Zilliacus feels that it is time for Suning to leave Inter Milan, so that new owners can bring “stability” to the club.

The Finnish businessman, who has been linked with a takeover of Inter in the past, responded to a statement by Nerazzurri President Steven Zhang by criticizing the current owners in a tweet.

Earlier today, Inter President Zhang made a public statement hitting out at US fund Oaktree Capital.

The Nerazzurri Number One implied that Oaktree has been obstructing Suning’s efforts to find a path forward at the club.

This comes amid the looming deadline on a loan that Oaktree made to Suning in 2021.

Should Suning default, their controlling stake in Inter will pass into the hands of Oaktree.

This situation naturally creates a great deal of uncertainty regarding the future for Inter.

In the view of Zilliacus, however, this is a sign that it is time to go for Suning as Nerazzurri owners.

Zilliacus Criticizes Suning: “Inter Need Stability”

Finnish billionaire Zilliacus has shown an interest in buying Inter in the past.

In the end, the 68-year-old has not taken over the Nerazzurri. At least as of yet.

However, that has not stopped Zilliacus from taking an interest in the goings-on at Inter. And, from time to time, weighing in to give his opinion.

And the Finn decided to respond to the statement that Zhang made earlier today.

Zilliacus took to Twitter with a response. He wrote, “So now it is Oaktree’s fault that Suning cannot repay the loan?”

“Inter needs stability and continuity, not owners whose changing fortunes hurt the club and the fans. Time for a new ownership structure.”
