have to cut their costs drastically in the coming season due to serious financial problems, which resulted in Antonio Conte’s departure, who led the Nerazzurri to Serie A championship for the first time since 2010.
Former Inter president
is worried about the club’s destiny under Suning’s ownership, who spent a great deal of money when they arrived but have now faced some financial challenges.
In an interview with
Il Fatto Quotidiano newspaper
, Moratti said:
“I am worried, of course.
“These gentlemen arrived and spent a lot to build a great team. Something serious must’ve happened in China and they were forced to drop their activities abroad. Steven Zhang wants to keep it going, but for how long?”
There have also been rumors about some attempts to provide the conditions for fans for a possible buyout, however, Moratti thinks such thing is unlikely to happen.
“There are many rich Inter fans, but getting them to put money in is another matter. I’ve seen initiatives like this in Germany and Spain, but the rules are different there. The figures needed to buy Inter would not be easy to achieve,”
“The Super League would’ve only been a way out of trouble for those clubs who were in it. This has been talked about for years, so it’s nothing new, but the way it started and ended so badly means it’ll be much more difficult to try again in future.”
