New Inter Milan president Erick Thohir says he'll return to Italy for the derby against AC Milan.

Thohir took in the draw with Sampdoria on the weekend.

"I'm looking forward to the next games, the derby especially, and hopefully it's going to be an exciting game to see," Thohir, who bought 70 per cent of the club from Massimo Moratti, added.

"I'll be here again for the derby because it's good to support the team. That's why I went to see them in the locker room afterwards - to give them support."
