Thohir: Mazzarri under scrutiny

The Serie A club’s president has admitted the coach’s future is not 100% secure despite insisting he is happy with the Italian’s work this season

Inter president Erick Thohir has refused to give assurances that coach Walter Mazzarri will be at the helm next season.

Mazzarri was only appointed 10 months ago and although Thohir stated that he is not planning a change of coach, the 43-year-old offered no guarantee over his future, sporting director Piero Ausilio or chief executive Marco Fassone.

When asked if he could be sure that the trio will still be at the club next term, Thohir told Gazzetta dello Sport: “No, because everybody is under scrutiny. Even [Michael] Williamson [chief financial officer], who I wanted at the head of HR, finance and legal issues, is under scrutiny. It’s fair trusting everyone, but everybody has to be responsible for his actions.

“I don’t want to be misunderstood: at the moment I’m very happy with the work of the three people you mentioned. But I will keep checking up on everyone.”

Thohir has already showed his ambition by securing the signing of Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic for next season, while key duo Fredy Guarin and Rodrigo Palacio have signed new contracts.

The Indonesian businessman has made no secret of his ambition to restore the club to their former glories since his takeover back in October.

The Nerazzurri are currently sixth in the table, a mammoth 31 points behind runaway leaders Juventus, with nine matches remaining.
