Don't have one.
Byproduct of the hate towards ownership and the fact he is in his position due to nepotism.

I personally don’t have any strong feelings towards Steven but I guess if I lean either way it’s more positive then negative. It’s obvious the kid has fallen in love with Inter and actually cares whether or not the team is winning. You can’t fake the reactions in the stand, if he was that good he would be in Hollywood.

The issue is we know he really doesn’t have any control over anything that goes on. He is just a proxy for his father who ultimately makes the decisions. I think if he were left to his own devices he would be more Moratti than Thohir. I’d like to think he at least lobbies with his father to spend more on Inter but only he would know If that’s true. Also, none of really know just how bad things have gotten for the Zhang family financially over the past few years. At the end of the day though none of that is Steven’s fault, and he certainly doesn’t feel like a bad guy to me.
Agree with everything except the last part. Imo he is in total control and left alone, that's the problem here. I think suning and his father gave him total control and said good luck, we are out, find some ways, and he did by going to that fund to borrow money.

I don't mind him being goofy or cringy tbh, better than not caring at all, my only issue is his obvious stubbornness in terms of selling which can lead us to a lot of problems if he takes another loan, so that he can continue playing his big shot role of being a president of a famous club.

You get yelled at by your parents at all ages and in all income/wealth brackets. It's rather normal if you live close to your parents, doesn't mean they don't love you or can't listen to your opinions.

I don't know where your idea that the father-son relationship in rich family has to be cold and pragmatic comes from, but you guys probably have some interesting relationships with your children/parents, who knows.
If you are Steven Zhang, you can't do much with your opinion. His decisions must be aligned with the wishes of his dad, and his must be aligned with the Chinese Communist Party's.

The idea that you can extrapolate whatever someone says about a perceived relationship in a very specific context* and assume that it derives based on personal experiences is naive at best.

* Billionaire dad who's not really a free businessman but is a dependent of the CCP sends his kid to Europe to enhance his CV in a decoration position whilst his company is going towards the toilet and has intense pressure by the government he's relying upon, is not something you can find more than a couple of examples of in the last 100 years.


Maybe what's restrictive is your view of this as you cannot really envisage what problems certain situations can bring. And what level of autonomy someone line Zhang Jr has.

There's nothing to be said anymore on the topic about Steven.

If it wasn't Steven, and it was some successful CEO of a sports drink brand, then people would be bitching about that more so than now about Steven.

There is no scenario where bitching people will stop bitching. And I'm not trying to offend anyone here, but there's no president of the club that would make the bitchy gang here stop bitching.

If it was Leonardo, talks like "he doesn't have education and experience to run a real finance club, this is not PSG"... I mean, there is no scenario where a bitchy person (male Karen) says: you know what, you might be right about this one, and i was wrong.

What president you guys want? Moratti? Tohir? Facchetti?

But it's ok. You're a known breed. Nothing really is enough for you.

Aside from the financial situation, we've achieved everything pretty much we could ask for under his tenure. What more could we want

And you complain in your long ass post because other people complain.

I'm sorry I'm missing your point. Should it be a short post?

Or did you miss my point? I'm not saying people should not complain, judge or whatever.

I don't like him because he bought himself a black and blue sportscar which he parades around in Italy. He even isn't in Italy half of the time anyway.

I would kill to be in his position, to run a club like Internazionale. Obviously I am jealous and obviously Suning are far more serious about running thr club than Thohir or whatever that cunts name was. He was hoping to sell as soon as he bought the club

I can't help myself, I dislike rich people until I'm rich myself

Steven is just "the face" of the ownership, when Inter's winning the mood was meh. Now that the financial situation has thrown Inter into turmoil with rumors of pushing players out, trouble in signing players cause there's no money, so he gets the heat/hate. Many fans have little love for their ownership to begin with, so its no big thing. In fact, imho, the hate for Steven is minimal, rather the ridicule and monking are high.
I agree with @wera though, the Inter coloured sports car is stupid vanity deal.

Imagine what all Inter fans feel after Skriniar sold.

Zhang must be the most hated person alive for all Inter fans.

"We want Inter to be competitive in all the fronts. In Italy and Europe."

This guy should be a comedian.

This guy should leave Italy permanently. Never come back.

I thought last summer was bad but this might turn out to be worse when we sell Skriniar.
