New Serie A Inter Milan Owner Erick Thohir To Rebuild Club By Following U.S. Sports Model

New Serie A Inter Milan Owner Erick Thohir stated on Sunday that he will "rebuild the Milan outfit on the American model and thus bring them back at the top" by '16, according to XINHUA. Thohir has been "expected to invest heavily in the transfer market, but he insisted that he will first make organizational changes to form a modern club." Thohir: "In England three or four clubs have entered into American hands, like Manchester United. I know the States well because I love basketball and there I realized how Americans make sport into an industry. They play the long game, know how to expand and become stronger. If Inter don't follow that model, they won't be competitive in future. The first thing is to be strong, then the fans must see entertaining matches. If you don't have a good business plan, then investment will never be remunerative" (XINHUA, 11/18).
