Moratti ‘didn’t expect’ Suning problems

Former Inter owner Massimo Moratti admits he ‘didn’t expect’ Suning to be in a position where they ‘are unable to support’ the club.

Moratti sold the Serie A giants to Erick Thohir in 2013, then Chinese company Suning took over in 2016.

However, with the pandemic still limiting revenue and the Chinese Government clamping down on investment in overseas football clubs, Suning are trying to find new investors.

“I didn’t expect this to happen,” Treble winner Moratti told Firenzeviola.it.

However, with the pandemic still limiting revenue and the Chinese Government clamping down on investment in overseas football clubs, Suning are trying to find new investors.

“I didn’t expect this to happen,” Treble winner Moratti told Firenzeviola.it.

“Mind you, this situation is difficult for people all over the world and is putting Suning and the Zhang family in the position where they are unable to support, for intent and means, the cause of the club.

“I hope that they can find someone else who is up to their standards.”

Talks with BC Partners to sell some or all of the Suning shares in Inter were abandoned this week, with reports the American fund had pulled out following the due diligence.
