Zanetti, 40, is being linked with a coaching role at Chelsea.
"I haven't had time to meet with him. I had meetings with Nike, with our commercial partners and the banks... I am not saying that he is not important or that I don't respect him," said Thohir.
"I will be back in the next few weeks to prepare for next season in business terms too."
