Inter Milan president Erick Thohir has been discussing his takeover of the club.
Thohir bought Inter from Massimo Moratti earlier this season.
"I love Inter. And when I see the Nerazzurri's glories of past I get excited," he told the Corriere dello Sport.
"I never imagined being a partner with Moratti and to become the owner of the club, but I had the opportunity and did not think twice.
"I had previously been offered a few clubs in the Premier League, not at the top, but if you are not in love with a team then it is tough.
"To do things well, in addition to correct business, you also need passion. And I have so much passion for Inter.
"I'm not a businessman who only wanted a company with a strong brand in which to do business. I also wanted a team with a great history, a club I feel for. Inter is all about that."
