Erick Thohir sets Inter 2016 UCL goal

New Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has made Champions League success in 2016 his number one priority after the San Siro was reportedly chosen to host the tournament’s final that year.

Wilson: Looking back

Thohir was elected as the Nerazzurri's new president last week, and he completed a visit to Italy with an appearance on RAI television in which he laid out his plans for the club he acquired from Massimo Moratti.

Regaining Europe's greatest prize in club football tops Thohir's wishlist, and he can see no better time to do it than when the showpiece could be coming to Milan in just over two years' time.

"We've already laid good foundations for the next two to three years," he said. "But Inter have got to be prepared for 2016 when the Champions League final will be in Milan. I have faith in [coach Walter] Mazzarri and I thank Moratti for choosing him."

Thohir joked about signing Lionel Messi during a visit which endeared him to a previously-sceptical Inter fanbase, throughout which he never stopped smiling.

While that move is unlikely to be made, Thohir did suggest that money will not necessarily be an issue when it comes to strengthening the squad.

The Indonesian businessman said he wants to see the right players in the right places, and not necessarily the biggest names, but those who can guarantee a spectacle.

"We're building a system and will choose the players the coach believes fit best in this squad, players who can delight the fans because it's important that we play attractive football," Thohir said. "You win games with your heart and if you give it all of your heart, then you can beat any opponents."

Thohir will not be as present as his predecessor at Inter games, but he has vowed to follow them from afar, while he says he will be bringing his family to Milan for a holiday before Christmas.

"I can't make it to every game, but I'll be a long-distance Inter fan," he said. "I'll get up at 2:45 in the morning to see the games from Indonesia."
