President Thohir before Inter v Napoli

MILAN – FC Internazionale president Erick Thohir spoke to reporters at the Stadio Meazza in the build-up to tonight’s match against Napoli.

This is what the president said:

How long will it take to complete the negotiations with the banks?
"The process could take one month or three months because at the end they would like to understand the new concepts of the business. We have a new business plan that Mr Moratti and myself are looking forward to implementing. It’s good for Inter and it’s good for the fans. For example, from my last visit to Madrid I think they implement the same model I view as ideal. It’s amazing what they do. To compete against a club as big as that we need to follow the same models, we need to be more competitive on the business side, on the budgeting side, on the playing side, in everything."

Moratti recently said that Mourinho could return to Inter one day. Do you agree?
"Well, I think the most important thing right now is that we have a good coach. Mr Moratti also said that we have a good coach. We have a commitment with him that lasts several years so we have to stay loyal but we also need to have results. That’s why yesterday when I went to the Pinetina and met all the players I told them all that we need to focus on the last four games."

What do you want to see tonight?
“We want to win! Because in these last four games we need to get as many points as we can."

What forward will join next summer?
"We need to complete the squad. There are discussions between the sporting director, myself, the management and the coach, because we need to add here and there. The most important thing right now is that we complete the season. We want to build a stronger team."
