Capello unconvinced by Inter president

Former AC Milan coach Fabio Capello has said he is "not convinced" by new Inter Milan president Erick Thohir.

Erick Thohir is planning changes at Inter.
Erick Thohir can't have a transitional year, says Capello.

Wilson: Inter losing steam

Indonesian media magnate Thohir took charge of the Nerazzurri late last year, but has yet to make any investment in the squad and has said he wants to reduce its average age.

That lack of arrivals has surprised Capello, who said he could imagine the Inter fans' frustration.

"You think that, when a new president arrives at a big club, he could do something to strengthen the side," the former England coach told Italy's Fox Sports.

"Thohir's not doing this, and that's the truth. When you arrive at a club like Inter, you can't say things like 'it's best to sell before buying.'

"Their fans have memories of wins, of positive records and you can't think about a transitional year. He's not convinced me; he's not doing anything. Inter are one of the heritages of Italian football."

Fredy Guarin looks likely to leave Inter before any new faces are brought in, but Sunday's 1-0 defeat to Genoa may hasten the arrival of some fresh blood.

Coach Walter Mazzarri said current performances were frustrating, but added: "I can't blame them [the players] for anything.

"Everything's going against us, but we've got to think positive. We had our chances, and it's hard to play with more attacking players than those I fielded today.

"It's frustrating because we're throwing away important points and we deserve a few more."
