Materazzi Believes Thohir Is The Right Man For The Job
Former Inter Milan legend Marco Materazzi has claimed that the club’s new president Erick Thohir is the right man to lead the club to more success in the future. After severe financial difficulties, Erick Thohir was appointed as the new president of the club. Even though Inter Milan have not really spent much in the last few transfer windows, it seems that the club are ready to open the wallets this time around. They have already brought in Nemanja Vidic on a free transfer from Manchester United. The Serbian defender will not only be providing excellent defensive capabilities, but also leadership as well.
Inter have also been linked with the likes of Fernando Torres and John obi Mikel in the last few weeks. Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez is also expected to arrive at the San Siro on a season-long loan deal after his failure to establish himself in the first-team in the Premier league outfit. This new signings will certainly hold Inter in good stead according to former defender Materazzi. He says that he is confident that Inter will be able to return to Champions League next campaign.
The club finished in a disappointing fifth place last season after being involved in 15 draws throughout the campaign.
“I am sure that Erick Thohir will manage to give the shine back to Inter. I like the new leadership – it is ambitious and has brought a good amount of capital. That is something that shouldn’t be underestimated. Now it will be important to identify and bring in two more world class players. One has already arrived in (Nemanja) Vidic,” said the former Inter Milan defender. During his time at Inter Milan, Materazzi won numerous trophies including the Champions League in 2010. He retired from playing in 2011 after having made more than 200 league appearances for the club.
