Roberto Mancini enjoyed probably the best spell of his managerial career at Inter Milan by getting the club to numerous league titles. The former Manchester city manager recently took over at the Turkish club Galatasaray. At the same time, his former club Inter Milan have changed ownership after a long time.

Massimo Moratti, who has been the president of the club for almost 2 decades, will be stepping down after he sold a major stake in the club to Indonesian investors.

International Sports Capital have bought 70% of Inter Milan to become the major shareholders.

Even though Massimo Moratti will remain involved in the club in some form, he is unlikely to be the president after a short while. Mancini has paid tribute to his former president by saying that he has held the club in his heart since he was a child, and it is fitting that he remains the president even after the sale. Moratti is known for his oil business and he has made a lot of money. His family has been the controlling party of Inter Milan for more than five decades.

His father held ownership of the club from 1955 to 1968, which is widely regarded as the best years in the history of the club.

"I have read that Moratti could remain as president and I interpret that as a sign of love. Inter is his life since he was a young boy and it's difficult to remain with limited power in a house where you have been the only owner. The Inter fans can be calm because if Moratti has chosen Thohir is because that was the best possible prospect. I feel as though I gave him something important," said Mancini. During Moratti's time, the club managed to win numerous league titles and also the Champions league.
