I’m actually unimpressed, and quite embarassed tbh. He really sounded like an angry teen on an internet. He should learn from Marotta how to talk with common sense, throwing jabs without making such names like “clown”. To do all this in a fucking Instagram story makes it even worse.

He is acting like very typical 29 year old. Yea it is, but finally someone stands against this nonsense.

The emotion part is good that will attach him to Inter .

While i agree with him (btw good to know presidente reads my posts :D) personally i prefer the much more professional approach of Marotta over meaningless insults on social media.

Zhang exploded: 'Dal Pino a clown'

Inter President Steven Zhan exploded in rage when he received the Lega’s proposition to play Juventus-Inter on March 9. “Shame on you Paolo Dal Pino”.

The Nerazzurri chief attacked the Lega President Dal Pino after learning about the new fixture list and vented his rage on Instagram.

The Derby d’Italia between Juventus and Inter was supposed to be held on Sunday but was postponed along with four other matches.

The Lega proposed to play the match between the Scudetto contenders on Monday March 9 and Zhang reacted by calling President Dal Pino the “biggest and darkest clown”.

“Playing around the calendar and always putting the public health as secondary consideration,” he wrote on Instagram. “You are probably the biggest and darkest clown I have ever seen.

“24 hours? 48 hours? 7 days? And what else? What’s your next step?

“And now you speak about sportsmanship and fair competition? How about we don’t protect our players and coaches and ask them to play for you 24/7, non-stop?

“Yes, I’m speaking at you. Our Lega President Paolo Dal Pino! Shame on you. It’s time to stand up and take your responsibility! This is what we do in 2020!

“Everybody around the world, doesn’t matter if you are Inter fan or Juve fan or no fan at all. Please be safe! This is the most important thing for you, your family and our society.”

Those emoticons were unnecessary IMO, making him look like a teenage girl on her period.

Totally agree with Il Drago, but since Il Presidente is that young, maybe he can use that into his defence. :D

He is the son of a multibillionaire, I think he is free to do whatever the fuck he likes, including calling officials in Italy clowns, which they very much are.

I couldn't give a shit how young this makes him look, this reaches a million more people than Moratti making sarcastic comments, for example.

Of course, if Steven could now pull up some telephone recordings like the good old days of 2006 that would be lovely. :D

Y'all are idiots if you dont think this wasnt carefully vetted by the media team and probably some lawyers before it got sent.

Lawyer language seems to have changed quite a bit from the last time I checked. :work:

Have to agree with Brehme on this.

I am disappointed because I was convinced that Steven possessed class and maturity that was above your usual Italian circus levels.
If you have ethical and professional backbone paired with the balls to speak out and financial security to provide for whatever fallout for putting your money where your mouth is... then at least put enough effort towards a statement that at least vaguely resembles something akin to Queen's English.

Not goddamn chinglish and not on an instagram text-over-background image. I'd expect this child-like tantrum from any of our players but not from the president of the club.
It's fine to be a bleeding heart, in fact I welcome the sentiment, after all I loved Moratti for the exact same thing. But the format of the message is very distasteful and lacks class. Not to be mistaken with the actual message, I'm all for openly calling idiots what they are, for the whole world to see.

Nonetheless, it’s quite horrible.

Really confused over that rage.

It is surely funny as hell and fits to our time (youngish guy, instagram...), but on the other hand, the club president could maybe act differently in these cases.

I'm not saying the lawyers wrote it, but you can absolutely believe everyone high profile has someone check their social media posts before they go out.

Except Donald trump

Nah, he wrote it out of anger, and the media picked it up.

Well i understand why he's so angry, imagine you invest million dollars for this club, working tirelessly to get some sponsor and you feel cheated in the end, I'd act the same as him

Fuck it and fuck the fine.

The important thing isn’t a man misspelling words in a language that isn’t his native tongue. It’s not the type of social media or channel from where the message comes from.

It’s the message that says that we won’t stand for the obvious favoring of one club, like it has always been. Sure, they’ll try to trounce us and screw ud in any way that can now - in all likelihood on the field as well - but the message is all that matters.
If only we weren’t alone, but then again, we always have been.

That’s Inter.

Not sure what was not to like about that comment steven said it how it is.
The Lega handled this in the worst way possible ad they did actually look like clowns......

It s not like all of us were not pissed the way this got handled, so why should steve just sit by and watch?

Plus imh this came as more of a surprise to steven then it was to us i m sure he thought the system was not that rigged and fucked up.
It s good that the people who actually invested millions into italy and of which the lega also profits actually speak out on how fucked this is. Pretty sure they did not invest all that money just to get fucked over by corruption...

He could have chosen his words better no doubt about it but at the end of the day he only spoke the truth.
