‘I don’t know if Inter are Chinese or American’ – Mino Raiola

Tue 21 September 2021 | 18:05

Agent Mino Raiola has claimed Serie A clubs are losing their identity as the league has been increasingly colonized by foreign investors and criticizes Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

The representative of

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

,

Paul Pogba

,

Matthijs de Ligt

, and

Erling Haaland

reacted to

Napoli

President

De Laurentiis

proposing a new European League.

“I find it strange that De Laurentiis has only now realized that football needs to be completely reformed,”

Raiola

told

RAI Sport

.

“Today in Italy we have Milan who are American. I don’t know if Inter are Chinese or American, someone will tell me…

“Roma are American, Napoli are owned by a Roman. Perhaps we are more international, while Juventus are still in the hands of the Agnelli family.”

“We must be careful not to lose space in the football pyramid. If we don’t all work together and form a new project, we’ll realize we’re not even in it anymore,”

continued Raiola

.

“The most important league in the world now is England for three reasons: money, showmanship and infrastructure, all of which we are lacking in Italy.

Railo spoke about the arrival of American properties in Serie A.

“However, we’ll see if the Americans can run our football. There is liquidity there to invest in sport, they are purchasing during their best period and our worst.

“They are investing heavily in Europe and above all Italy. There aren’t any real estate assets here, and they see that as a positive. They think the situation can only improve.”

Genoa

are in advanced talks to sell to American investors, after

Roma

,

Milan

,

Fiorentina

,

Venezia

, and

Spezia

were already purchased by US businesses.
