Erick Thohir: “Gratitude for Moratti”

MILAN – President Thohir left Milan and returned to Jakarta today. Before leaving Italy he wished to express his admiration and respect for Massimo Moratti and his 19 years at the helm of the club, first as president and then as honorary president, a position he recently stepped down from.

“Massimo achieved remarkable success during his time in charge of the club, the culmination of which was Inter’s incredible Treble triumph in 2010. He didn’t only succeed in building another Grande Inter side, following in the footsteps of his father Angelo: away from the pitch he created the marvellous worldwide social project that is Inter Campus. He has my gratitude.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Angelomario Moratti, Rinaldo Ghelfi and Alberto Manzonetto for their work as members of the board.

“In the coming weeks I shall call a shareholders’ meeting and ensure that another board is appointed. I will return to Milan in November and in the meantime, like all our fans around the world, I’ll be following our games and cheering on the team from afar, starting with tomorrow’s match against Cesena.”
