With both clubs sharing an owner, it was only a matter of time before a connection would form between D.C. United and Italian club Inter Milan.
In a release from D.C. United on Monday, the two clubs have entered a “strategic partnership” together, which according to the release includes the “sharing of team, organizational, and competitive” practices.
We see this as a positive relationship for Inter,” Inter vice president Angelo Moratti said in the release. “We appreciate the cooperative opportunity and look forward to working with D.C. United now and in the future.”
D.C. United are currently in Indonesia as they get ready to face Persib Bandung in a post-season friendly on December 6, set up by owner Erick Thohir, who bought a controlling stake in Inter last month. Inter are currently in fourth place in Serie A, but are ten points behind leaders Juventus.
What do you think of this news? Excited to see the two clubs develop a partnership? Think that some Inter youngsters could find themselves at D.C. United for seasoning and experience?
