Inter president Thohir not selling DC United

Erick ThohirInter president Erick Thohir has confirmed that he won’t be selling his share in DC United despite reports claiming otherwise.

The 43-year-old was expected to sell his share in the MLS club as a way to help pay off the Nerazzurri’s debt of €200 million, but he insists that his ownership of DC United plays an important part in his sports investment plans.

Thohir spoke to reporters in Indonesia on Friday about the rumours and conceded that he’s fully dedicated to both Inter and the American team.

“I want to clarify that both Inter and DC United are part of my football ‘portfolio’,” said the Biscione chief.

“These resources are both an integral part of my investment in the sports world overseas and I am aiming to grow the brands of both the clubs.

“I deny then, without misunderstanding, the rumours in the media about the possible sale of DC United.

“My commitment and my dedication is to both clubs and is concentrated on producing results for both, on and off the field.”
