Although Thohir only owns 30 per cent of the Serie A club
and does not seem particularly involved in decisions, leaving
that to Chinese conglomerate Suning Group, he is still
technically the President of Inter and has been since 2013.
The 48-year-old had also owned MLS club DC United until
last month and hit the headlines in Indonesia recently by
organising the Asian Games.
President of Indonesia Widodo announced today that he has
appointed Thohir his campaign manager ahead of next year’s
“Erick Thohir is a successful businessman who owns a media
company, football clubs, basketball teams and others. One
thing is for sure, he is successful in everything he leads,”
declared Widodo.
Thohir noted he had been “asked to contribute in terms of
management and ideas. We want a dignified democracy to
show the world Indonesia’s capabilities.”
