The owner of Milan Inter was called "fat Indonesian"

President of Milan Inter Eric Ehokhohir (Erick Thohir) was called the writer of the famous newspaper "The Huffington Post" "fat little Indonesian."

Tohir, who is the owner of the American football club DC United and the Indonesian Persib Bandung, acquired the Internationale on October 15, 2013, having bought a 70 percent stake from its predecessor Massimo Moratti. It is worth noting that for all the years during which Moratti owned the club, his actions regarding Inter were not always evaluated unambiguously. Undoubtedly, the millionaire wholeheartedly supported his players, sparing no means for its development, while often his decisions led to the weakening of the team.

Italy rejoiced when she realized that Tohir has a better vision of football than Moratti. It is worth noting that the Indonesian in less than a year of his presidency over Milan Inter has already taken a number of decisions that had a very beneficial effect on the team. Nevertheless, Tohir regularly becomes the object of ridicule and attacks on different sides.

So, for example, Evelina Christillin, the former head of the 2006 Turin Olympics Organizing Committee, didn’t quite speak about the current owner of Inter in her article on The Huffington Post, casting doubt on his financial capabilities. “What was left of Inter with the departure of Moratti?” She asked readers on her blog. "The little fat Indonesian who ultimately left after Moratti the majority of the shares and the team. However, no one knows if he has enough funds to support Inter."

The whole article of Kristillin was designed in a very defiant and provocative tone. She also called Tohira "cicciobello a mandorla", which roughly translates as "narrow-eyed chrysalis." “Ciccio” means “puffy”, and “occhi a mandorla” means “almond-shaped eyes,” which is a fairly common phrase when describing a person of Asian descent. However, in Italian this phrase has a racist color.

"The narrow-eyed chrysalis, which does everything it pleases, because he (Moratti) is no longer here," the journalist said.

By the way, Italian society is often credited with the title of racist. In 2008, Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi hit the front pages of newspapers around the world after he described United States President Barack Obama as “young, handsome, and tanned.”

In a conversation with Russian President, Berlusconi said, speaking about America’s potential: “Obama is young, beautiful and tanned, and therefore I think there are opportunities for developing good cooperation.”

Football players of African American descent, who happened to play in the composition of local clubs, were also attacked by Italian citizens. So, the talented Mario Balotelli (Mario Balotelli) once fell under the fire.
