New Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir is confident of taking his new club back to the top.
Thohir is convinced that Inter can recapture the glory days of their past and it is his opinion that the club is as illustrious as any in Europe.
He told Tutto Mercato: "The football competition in Italy is often obscured by the Spanish or English, but I prefer Italian football.
"If I choose to buy a club, I do it for the great name and history. I cannot acquire a club that does not have these two features - it would be a defeat.
"Inter have a big name and it was a great opportunity. Inter had the right conditions to be acquired and has an important history in Europe and in the world."
