Inter Milan CEO Alessandro Antonello has weighed into the Mauro Icardi affair during the club’s 111th anniversary saying “People and players come and go, but the club remains.”
Icardi has not featured for the club since he was stripped of the captaincy on February 13 and has refused to resume first-team training.
Reports circulating in Italy claims that the club executives and Icardi’s camp had a fruitful meeting.
“Being part of Inter is a privilege, but the most important thing is to celebrate this anniversary with the fans,” Antonello told Inter TV.
“People and players come and go, but the club is what remains. As always, you see the fans support the team on every occasion, showing how much they love their club.
“We have to thank those who cheer us on in these difficult moments because we need them.”

Next week is the Derby della Madonnina against Milan and Antonello revealed a special kit.
“We’ll be wearing a unique jersey, as we are the only club who for over 20 years have worn Nike shirts. It even made an impact on Milan Fashion Week.”
Inter’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League received a big boost with their 2-0 win against SPAL.
