Inter Milans new owners Suning Holdings Group have pledged that they will invest money into the club in the hope of returning them back to the top.
The Chinese retail giant acquired a 68.55 percent majority share of the Nerazzurri earlier this week, becoming the first Chinese owners of a Serie A club.
Suning Holdings Group chairman Zhang Jindong said at the time he was excited and thrilled to be taking control of a club with such a history, and now vice-president Weimin Sun has promised the owners will be doing their utmost to return Inter to their former glories.
Inter have won a total of 18 Serie A titles in their long and illustrious history, but the last came in 2010 while they finished 24 points behind winners Juventus in the 2015-16 season.
We will certainly invest in Inter, we will help the club and provide as many resources as possible to bring them back to the top or to a level even higher than before, Sun is quoted by Mediaset as telling Inter Channel.
The situation will get more and more interesting and rosy. It is a challenge but were confident we can do it, thanks to constant investments, the support of Inters Chinese fans and the clubs own managerial skills.
Inter coach Roberto Mancini, meanwhile, has admitted he was kept in the dark about the sale of the club to the new owners.
In an interview with Radio DeeJay, Mancini said former majority shareholder Erick Thohir only told him about the sale recently.
I talked with Thohir a few days ago, and he explained the situation, but like everybody else, before that I knew absolutely nothing, he said. I am just the manager, so he had no reason to call me to say I am doing this or that.
I genuinely dont know much about it and will talk when the situation is clearer. As for my own future, people have been asking for months, but Im definitely staying.
Mancini added he is looking forward to having more funds to spend -- within the limits imposed by financial fair play -- having previously thought Inter would only be able to get free transfers.
