Inter President Erick Thohir has reiterated that the squad needs changes and that the next two to three years ‘will be difficult’.
The Nerazzurri are under the Indonesian businessman’s leadership now and currently struggling for form, attention has increased on his future intentions with them.
“We are now entering a period of transition,” Thohir has told reporters this week, on from watching Inter’s draw with Chievo on Monday evening with a supporters’ group in Jakarta.
“Ideally, the average player should be aged between 24 and 26 years. This does not mean that the heroes of the 2010 treble are not appreciated, but it is clear that even younger players must be incorporated into the squad.
“In the current squad there are many players in certain roles and fewer in others. We need to create a balance between the departments, so that they are neither too full nor too empty.
“For the next two to three years, it will be difficult. We want a healthy club, we look to the example of the English clubs, where they have been able to manage their revenue so as to increase it and in this way, buy great players.”
