Inter Milan President: ‘Hernanes will be useful for years’
Inter Milan President Erick Thohir has admitted the Nerazzurri need more players like Hernanes in the team if they are to become Serie A champions again.
Thohir was speaking to Corriere dello Sport about making signing in the summer and the conversation turned to the Brazilian midfielder that was signed in January.
Football Italia quoted the Internazionale president who said: “I did not decide to buy Hernanes.
“The decision was made by all members of the club because we believe that he will be useful for Inter, not only for these six months but in the coming years.
“That said, if in June we will identify another element that can give us an equally important contribution, we will spend the money and try to bring him to Milan.
“How many champions are missing from the team? I believe in team play and I did not fall in love only with a club built only with superstars.”
Although Thohir didn’t fall in love with Inter Milan because they were full of superstars or were a team that was going to buy various superstars there is one in particular who he would like to sign.
That man is Lionel Messi, he said: “To have Messi at Inter would be great, but I do not think we can buy him at this time.”
