Inter Milan president Erick Thohir: We want to follow Ajax model

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir admits they're rebuilding the club based on the "Ajax model".

Coach Frank de Boer has managed to oversee two victories this week to ease pressure on his job.

“We've invested a lot in the youth sector," he told Inter Channel.

“Now the Primavera can train at Appiano with the best. If we chose De Boer then it's precisely because we wanted to follow his Ajax model, which was always very attentive to young talents.

“It would be beautiful if lads like Miangue, Gnoukouri and Radu made the first team. Maybe next year, Dimarco could also return.

“The win against Juventus showed our strength, not only on the pitch: we set a Serie A record for gate receipts, which also happened last year.

“Inter are taking a new direction and we're also attentive to the corporate level. We'll be back among the 10 best clubs in the world."
