Moratti reveals Inter buyback clause

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has been told to play a more active role in conducting the affairs of the club or risk having to sell it back to his predecessor Massimo Moratti.

Erick Thohir is planning changes at Inter.
Erick Thohir bought Massimo Moratti's majority share in Inter Milan last November.

Wilson: Finally a win

The Indonesian bought Moratti's majority share last November, ending the Italian’s 18-year direct allegiance with the club.

Moratti was installed as Inter’s new honorary president and he has revealed how he could regain full control of the club if things do not work out according to plan for Thohir.

Moratti claims he has the right to buy the Nerazzurri back if certain agreements are not met, although he stressed he cannot see that happening, even if he would like Thohir to assume a more hands-on role.

"I would advise Erick Thohir to be more present or to have people he trusts 100 percent who can help the team," Moratti said.

"There are clauses in every contract for which, if things do not get done, I will have the possibility and the duty of buying the club back.

"In any case, from what I hear from Thohir, I really cannot see this happening."

Inter picked up their first win of 2014 on Sunday night -- a narrow 1-0 Serie A triumph over Sassuolo.

It was only the second time since Thohir took control of the club that the Nerazzurri have picked up maximum points in a league fixture, while coach Walter Mazzarri has also started to come in for criticism.

Moratti appointed the former Napoli boss last summer, and he still stands by that decision.

"Maybe more could have been expected from the players and the club instead," he said.
