Sabatini: ‘Not possible at Inter’

Former director Walter Sabatini has apologised to Inter fans for leaving, but “I wanted to have my style of football and it wasn’t possible here.”

He had been a bridge co-ordinating the two football clubs owned by Suning Group, namely Inter and Jiangsu Suning, but resigned last month following a difference of opinion.

“I did not think that, in certain conditions, I could be of use to a team that deserves something I wasn’t able to develop,” Sabatini told Sky Sport Italia.

He had been a bridge co-ordinating the two football clubs owned by Suning Group, namely Inter and Jiangsu Suning, but resigned last month following a difference of opinion.

“I did not think that, in certain conditions, I could be of use to a team that deserves something I wasn’t able to develop,” Sabatini told Sky Sport Italia.

He hinted at problems with the club hierarchy at Suning, particularly when it came to finances and strategy.

“I’ve met many Interisti and I thought that I simply couldn’t give them what they wanted. I made a very painful choice, because Inter is the maximum in my profession. I wanted to be up to the task and, as the conditions simply weren’t there, I preferred to thank Suning for the opportunity and move on.

“I wanted to have my style of football and it wasn’t possible here. I apologise to the Inter fans, because when I arrived, I grasped their sense of faith, but couldn’t repay that all the way.

“It wasn’t anyone in particular’s fault, but rather the procedures and the way of facing life as a football club that were not in sync with the way I do my work.”
