If you look at the work he has done at other clubs I can't imagine he really enjoys working for PSG. Yeah you got unlimited budget but he was a master to work with an limited budget and spotting ''new wonderkids''. Not try and get the next global superstar, it's way different. He was even linked to Ajax a year ago so that shows that he doesn't care what budget he has but that he wants a challenge.
There are a lot of news and gossip about him -- he apparently also consulted for Celta and Galatasaray, but his main gig seems to be PSG as he spends most of his time there and is always in the stands during their games. He's clearly in demand but it wouldn't make sense to deduce he wants to work somewhere just because he was linked to work there.

He is doing a similar job at PSG -- they signed players like Ekitike and Vitinha for the future. He has a special relationship with Mbappe from his time at Monaco. They pushed hard for Endrick but lost out to Real Madrid. Of course, they'll also go for star players in order to compete at the highest levels, but there is a clear change in strategy, where they blend the stars with their academy talent and other wonderkids.

I’m at the point whether I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. On one hand I think he would be helpful in an ownership change situation (knows the league and politics).

On the other hand we’ve made so many clown decisions lately. The main sponsorship, perisic-skriniar contracts, selling Hakimi, loaning Lukaku, Correa… he’s not exactly crushing it.

Honestly i don't think he's the right guy in our current financial situation and this is coming from someone who actually rates Marotta.

He's good with Bosman deals, which is very important, but he's very slow with extensions and transfers which can be problematic. The more negotiations drag on the worse conditions are going to be in the end. In our situation we need to act fast and grab any opportunities while they're still under the radar. Also club is too focused on Serie A players but i don't know if it's a Marotta, Ausilio, scouting or just an Inter issue in general.

On the other hand, i really don't want Marotta at Juve. It's already bad enough Juve are the only club in Italy with a serious budget. If they also have a competent manager at the helm things would get even worse.

Well, yeah, but blaming the guy for a sponsorship is where it gets too much :D

It's a beppe thing. Even at gobbi he hardly ever went outside serie a or the big 5 leagues. Ausilio has signed the likes of brozo and kova from the Croatian league.

Most of those are only clown decisions in hindsight... with the exception of the sponsorship and maybe correa....

He makes the final decision on who gets bought and likely has to approve any budget for scouting assignments. Also he is the one who likes to mention serie a experience.

Perhaps it’s not his call ultimately but partnering with these dodgy crypto companies is/ was beyond idiotic. As CEO I don’t see how Marotta isn’t at least somewhat responsible. He should know better and steer the club away.

Zhang plays a part in contract negotiations too.

Zero excuses for this guy.

He came at a time where things at Inter weren't ideal but under his watch he let some issues escalate and he had to deal with player's disliking the coach, players disliking other players and whatnot.
One could argue he succeeded in cleaning up but even his last faithful fan cannot help but wonder how things would have turned out if he hadn't spent an excess of 400m in transfers and salary budget increases while our main rival decided to fuck their chances up hy hiring Pirlo.

This now is all his doing. The team feels more toxic than ever despite no direct confrontations. Key players feel alienated. Management has double standards in how they treat players.

There is no friction between players and coach now.
There aren't any visible issues between players other than some contract related stuff which is mostly channeled towards disliking the management.

The only friction we have is between the uncertainty players feel and that's the doing of the management, financial problems or not.

Whatever our issues are, the management has a budget to operate with and they fucked it up, which only makes things worse.


It's unbelievable how much pass this guy gets for royally screwing up.
