Nerazzurri chairman Steven Zhang believes Inter can be one of Europe’s top 10 sides after Champions League win over Liverpool, Italian media report


Inter president Steven Zhang believes the Nerazzurri can be one of the top ten teams in European club football, and his ambition is to keep them there.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan’s Gazzetta dello Sport, which reports that the chairman was very confident with the team’s performance against Liverpool in the Champions League.

Inter have finished first and second in the last two Serie A seasons, and even with a narrow defeat in the Scudetto race in the season just gone by, they have shown they have no not let his level drop after the departure of Antonio Conte as head coach.

Zhang firmly believes that Simone Inzaghi is the right person to bring and maintain the level of the team not only to the top of Italian football, but also competitive at the top European level.

The Nerazzurri didn’t look out of place in their two-legged Champions League round of 16 tie against Liverpool, competition runners-up and winners three years ago, and even beat the Reds at home in the second league.

Inter were eliminated on aggregate from the encounter, but given the caliber of the opposition, Zhang felt it was still a hugely encouraging performance as the Nerazzurri return to the Champions League knockout stages.

As a result, the chairman has set his sights on being one of the top ten club teams in Europe for the foreseeable future under Inzaghi.
