Thohir insists Inter Milan ownership not about ego

Inter Milan president Erick Thohir insists his ownership isn't an ego trip.

Thohir bought Inter from Massimo Moratti earlier this season.

"I'm not in Milan because I want to be glamorous, because it leads me to fame or because I want to end up in the newspapers. I do not want any of this and it is why I do not like people looking into my personal life.

"I am here because I want to see the good of Inter, to return this club to being competitive and to win. I do not mean to put pressure on the players and on the Coach and I say that results will arrive more simply if during the week and on Sundays we having fun in this profession. And I repeat the same thing to people who work at the club, in all areas.

"I come from the other side of the world to Milan, I do not spend many hours on a plane for business, but because I am happy to be here. I enjoy doing what I do. I am never tired for Inter."
