Thohir Draws Inspiration from Pallotta, Roma

New Inter owner Erick Thohir voiced his admiration today for Roma owner James Pallotta and admitted he has drawn inspiration from the American.

“Over the past three years the leaders here have worked very hard. In the first season they struggled, but now the team is strong and is doing well. Their project is similar to ours. Pallotta has a model similar to what the Americans are carrying out in the United States and in England. I am referring to Arsenal and Manchester United. It is said that the winning strategy is the right one, but it is a road you must travel. In football and in life in general, you have to make choices. It’s best that you make the right decisions, the worst thing is not to make decisions. It’s even worse than making wrong decisions. I need time, but I will try to make the right choices for the good of Inter.”
