Erick Thohir Inter president has revealed that his main objective is to restore the Nerazzurri back into the great team they once were.

The 43-year-old, who took over as club president and majority owner of the Biscione earlier this season, has vowed to help rebuild the club over time and believes that he’s on the right path, as the Milan side currently sit in fifth place on the table.

Thohir recently spoke to VIVAbola about his love for Inter and was adamant that people mustn’t put pressure on the club while they work to improve.

“I didn’t buy Inter for glamour or for a resurgence in popularity,” said the Indonesian businessman.

“I don’t need those things. I spend hours and hours on the plane to and from Italy because I enjoy being the president of Inter. I never get tired of it.

“My goal is to recreate a great Inter side and I feel that we’re on the right path.

“However, we must not put pressure on the players and coaches. Results will only come if the team is enjoying the work they’re doing every week.”

- Forza Italia! I'm an Italian-American writer hailing from New York and I love calcio. You could call me an extreme Azzurri supporter and when it comes to Serie A, I mainly support Napoli (with Roma coming in a close second), though I have a great appreciation for all of the Italian teams and their players. Some of my favourite players are Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, Antonio Di Natale, Mario Balotelli, Daniele De Rossi, Lorenzo Insigne, and Francesco Totti (of course). Notice anything they have in common? Outside of Italian football, I am a fan of Liverpool and the New York Red Bulls. Follow me on Twitter for a variety of interesting tweets: @beardedlegend
