The 68-year-old oil tycoon has no regrets over selling the club to the Indonesian businessman, who he feels has the same enthusiasm for the game he once had
Former Inter owner Massimo Moratti believes that successor Erick Thohir is the right man to lead the club due to his passion for the Nerazzurri.
The oil tycoon sold his stake in the club to the Indonesian businessman back in October and was succeeded by the 43-year-old as club president a month later.
Moratti is certain that he has left the club in safe hands because he feels that Thohir’s passion for the game is as strong as his once was.
“The love story between Inter and the Moratti family started more than 50 years ago with my parents,” he told Rai News 24.
“My father became a fan of the club thanks to my mother, who took him to see Lazio-Inter in Rome. From that day forth, he was a supporter.
“I believe I made the right decision, as the moment arrives when you see yourself forced to leave the future in the hands of someone who has the same passion you had in the past.
“Times change and Thohir has all the qualities needed to do well in modern football. He is very active, works hard and is also a great communicator.”
