Inter Milan haven’t had a good time of things lately, having to dip into the Coaches’ pool to replace the sacked Frank De Boer.
Now that the Dutchman has been replaced by Stefano Pioli, however, another issue has reared its ugly head: the squad’s weaknesses, which haven’t been aided by the hefty amount of money wasted on so many flops.
The Thohir era has been particularly bad: this begins with the signing of Hernanes, who joined for 22.6 million.
The same goes for Stevan Jovetic (16.5m), Xherdan Shaqiri (15m, but at least he was sold on for more), Geoffrey Kondogbia (40.5m) and Gabigol (30m).
Though the latter will anger some, the Brazilian has played very little for someone who was considered a marquee signing and, unlike Philippe Coutinho (who cost 3m), shouldn’t be considered a talent who needs patience.
In fact, why was he given his own, personal staff, or paid more than Ivan Perisic?
To sum up, a competent club should have used 100m to build a new backbone: in Thohir’s time, 109m has only allowed Inter to sign Jovetic, Kondogbia, Gabigol and Hernanes.
