We have been talking about it for months, but Giuseppe Marotta has finally officially joined Inter as CEO for sport.
This is a huge step forward for Suning and Inter. Marotta is the best football executive in Italy, and one of the best in Europe, and he is now working for Inter.
“FC Internazionale Milano today announce the appointment of Giuseppe Marotta as Chief Executive Officer Sport,” the document on the club’s official website reads.
“The highly experienced executive begins his role immediately and will be responsible for the entire sports area of the club.
“FC Internazionale Milano will adopt a co-CEO model, in which Marotta will work alongside Alessandro Antonello who becomes Chief Executive Officer Corporate in charge of all corporate activities.
“Both CEOs will report to Inter President, Steven Zhang.”
The director left Juventus earlier this year, and at a board meeting today he has officially been appointed as a new Nerazzurri official.
“From today I’m part of the great Inter,” Marotta confirmed in a video released on the club’s Twitter account.
“It’s a source of great pride for me, I’ll hold the important position of CEO of the sporting area.
“This is an important experience in my professional life, full of great responsibility. That doesn’t scare me though, you start a new path and you have to be a winner.”
