PPTV, owned by Inter’s main shareholder Suning, have reportedly lost the rights to broadcast Serie A, after a serious delay in payments.
Calciomercato.com reports the bad news from China, as Suning struggled to pay IMG, the company that markets the rights of Serie A in the world.
The report reveals the company hasn’t received the established fees for months and the economic crisis appears increasingly severe for the Inter owners.
The outlet believes BC Partners’ offer for the shares in Inter was lower than requested by the Chinese company due to the crisis.
Inter CEO Beppe Marotta works hard to disguise the current situation at the club and told Sky Sport Italia before the match: “This is a delicate moment for problems that have little to do with what happens on the pitch.
“The technical area works to manage it in the best possible way, isolating the team from these problems that are over our heads. They will be solved in the best possible ways.”
