Oaktree Capital are not planning on implementing any radical cost-cutting as Inter Milan owners.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews.

It has now been a week since Oaktree confirmed their takeover of Inter by repossessing the shares in the club of Suning.

The US-based fund have spent the past seven days rapidly getting up to speed as Nerazzurri owners.

There have been meetings between Oaktree representatives and the existing Inter senior management. These have included CEO of Sport Beppe Marotta and Corporate CEO Alessandro Antonello.

Then yesterday, there was the first meeting between Oaktree and Inter coach Simone Inzaghi.

The new owners have gotten a sense of what the expectations of all the most important figures at Inter from the last few years are for the coming years.

And in turn, Oaktree have outlined their own vision and strategy to Inter’s senior figures.

Oaktree Capital Not Slashing Costs At Inter Milan

According to the Gazzetta, one thing that Oaktree have made abundantly clear to Inter’s directors and to coach Inzaghi is that they have no intention of slashing the costs at the club.

That certainly does not mean that there will be any sudden big injection of cast.

Oaktree will intend for Inter to spend within their means, as they have done for several years now.

But the fund have sought to soothe any anxiety that the club directors or Inzaghi might have about possible cost-cutting.

As far as Oaktree are concerned, the strategy that Inter have already been pursuing is sustainable.

Therefore, the new owners are not going to make any big changes in service of lowering costs.

Rather, Oaktree are optimistic that they can make further improvements to the financial situation at the Nerazzurri by further increasing the club’s revenues.
