Former Inter Milan defender Fulvio Collovati feels the club remains in safe hands amidst the ownership change as long as Beppe Marotta is in charge.

Collovati is a retired defender who started his career at AC Milan before making the crosstown switch to Inter in 1982.

The 67-year-old spent four campaigns with the Nerazzurri before embarking on other experiences at Udinese, Genoa and AS Roma. He also made 50 international caps.

The Italian was glad to see Inter lift the Scudetto title by a landslide. Simone Inzaghi’s men dominated the league from the get-go, and were the undisputed odds-on favorite to finish on top according to Melbet and all other major bookmakers.

But like all Nerazzurri supporters, Collovati was left concerned by the saga involving Suning and Oaktree.

Suning, who had been the majority owners of the club since 2016, had to repay their debt to Oaktree Capital by Monday.

But following their default, their shares at the club automatically passed over to their creditors.

Therefore, Oaktree have now assumed control over the Nerazzurri, taking over from the departing Chinese owners.

Fulvio Collovati Feels Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta Offers A Guarantee For The Supporters Amidst Ownership Change

Nevertheless, the American investment company will reportedly confirm the current hierarchy, beginning with Marotta.

The 67-year-old has been acting as the club’s CEO since his arrival in 2018. His move from Juventus to Inter shifted the balance of powers in Italian football, according to many observers.

Therefore, Collavati feels Marotta’s stay is major insurance for the club’s future.

“I lived through the era of Milan’s seven presidents in as many years. The player is always a point of reference and on this aspect, Inter doesn’t have problems,” said the retired defender in his interview with via FcInterNews.

“Marotta represents continuity and this is a very important guarantee for the fans.

“I lived in times when the owners were individuals. Now football has changed. But having someone like the Nerazzurri CEO in the club reassures you.”

Collovati also feels that Steven Zhang’s presidency was overly positive despite the disappointing ending.

“If you look at the bulletin board, I think it was a positive period.

“The fans want results and Inter have achieved several feats. You can’t always win, but it has undoubtedly been a positive stint.

“Nowadays, the big teams are in the hands of multinational funds. But this is also the case in England and France.”
