Moratti has previously called on businessman for a more consistent presence.
Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir has argued that it isn’t “necessary” that he is at the club’s training ground every weekend in order for them to be successful.
The Indonesian businessman has come under scrutiny from sections of the media for the lack of time he spends in Italy since completing his takeover of the club.
Former owner Massimo Moratti has also insisted that he might perhaps benefit from a more consistent presence at the club, but it is clear that the new majority shareholder doesn’t agree.
“I am the President, but it is important to have a strong management team, to carry forward the strategy that we have,” Thohir told Corriere dello Sport today, as reported by Football Italia.
“It is not necessary that every weekend I am at Pinetina.
“My presence at games? I saw the match against Fiorentina from Jakarta, staying up until dawn, and we won, and every time I come to Milan we drop points…
“I think what matters is the work. It is about what we are all focusing together on for the good of Inter.”
In a wide-ranging interview which covered various topics, Thohir also insisted that he had faith in Walter Mazzarri who he believes will continue to lead the club for years to come, whilst he also shared his belief that recent refereeing decisions against them have been questionable.
Furthermore, Thohir responded to growing unrest from the supporters with the signing of Brazilian playmaker Hernanes from Lazio in January, and it is understood that he will back Mazzarri heavily again in the summer transfer market.
However, it appears as though he will not be changing his itinerary any time soon which will predictably lead to further criticism if the Nerazzurri are unable to reach their ambitions this season.
Inter currently sit in fifth place in Serie A, but the likes of Verona and Parma continue to apply pressure on them while city rivals AC Milan are now just five points adrift after a recent turnaround since the appointment of Clarence Seedorf as coach.
