MILAN, Italy -- Inter Milan owner Erick Thohir has been elected as club president, ending Massimo Morattis 18-year spell in charge. Thohir, who bought a majority stake of Inter last month, was confirmed as the new president at an extraordinary board meeting on Friday. "In 10 years time only 10 clubs will be remembered in the world, only those which are winners, nice to watch and financially healthy," Thohir said. "Inter has to be and will be one of those. With this new management, with the definition of clear objectives and with everyones collaboration we will make sure Inter will be among those 10 clubs. "This new group has to be sufficiently creative to find new fans for the club, to attract them from Asia and from the United States. Creative in creating a winning squad and with (coach Walter) Mazzarri we are already on the right path." Thohir, along with Rosan Roeslani and Handy Soetedjo, has a 70 per cent stake in the 18-time Italian champions. Moratti has reduced his shares in Inter from 98.3 per cent to 29.5 per cent. "I want to give a really special thanks to my friend and new partner Massimo Moratti for his confidence and support and I also want to thank my associates Rosan and Handy, who I have known for more than 20 years," Thohir said. Moratti will have no role on the board but has been confirmed as honorary president, while his son Angelomario has been named as vice-president, alongside Soetedjo. "I am very happy to have found the new owner of this glorious club," Moratti said. "I am certain that they are more than prepared to continue bringing success to these beloved colours. "Personally I am honoured to have been president of Inter for so many years." Moratti took over the presidency when he bought the club in 1995. During his time in charge, Inter won five consecutive Serie A titles and also won the Champions League and Italian Cup in 2010. The 68-year-old Morattis last game as president was Inters 2-0 victory over Livorno. Thohir is also part owner of the Philadelphia 76ers and D.C. United. He is chairman of the Mahaka Group, which has business interests in media and entertainment. Inters last trophy was the 2011 Italian Cup. The team is currently fourth in the Italian league, seven points behind leader Rome -- the only other Serie A club to have foreign owners. Roma, which has yet to lose a game this season and won a record 10 matches to open the season, was taken over by a group of Boston executives in 2011. Marco Scandella Jersey . The defeat leaves the 41-year-old Nestor to concentrate on the mixed-doubles event after winning 12 straight matches and winning Australian titles in Brisbane and Sydney with two different partners. "This was a little bit of a let down, but all credit to them," said Nestor. Matt Moulson Jersey . (January 11, 2014) – Once again Kevin Martin proved why he is the all-time TSN skins leader, winning $11,500 in prize money and a spot in the Travelers All-Star Curling Skins Game presented by Pintys final following a semifinal victory over Brad Jacobs earlier this evening at the Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre in Banff, Alta. www.officialsabreshockeyauthentic.com/johan-larsson-jersey/. The team made the announcement after Saturdays 6-5 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. RHP Kenny Giles will be called up from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill Adams spot on the roster. Jason Kasdorf Jersey . Next week, hell try to add to the list. A Stanley Cup champion as a rookie, Seguin followed that up by becoming the youngest player to lead the Boston Bruins in scoring. Chad Johnson Jersey . Freddie Roach said if the Rios fight "does not go well, we will seriously talk about his retirement," but that Pacquiao was training as well as ever for the Nov.BATA, Equatorial Guinea - Congo surged back from 2-0 down and into the semifinals after beating Republic of Congo 4-2 in an African Cup of Nations thriller on Saturday.Dieumerci Mbokani scored his second in stoppage time as Congo responded with four goals in the last 25 minutes to deny their neighbours and namesakes.Both Congos reacted to a lacklustre first half with a pulsating second 45 minutes at Bata Stadium in the first knockout game.Dore Ferebory gave Republic of Congo the lead in the 55th when he drifted in behind the defence at a free kick and flicked home a right-foot volley.Thievy Bifouma made it 2-0 seven minutes later after some chaotic defending led to him sweeping in a loose ball from close range for his tournament-leading third goal in four games.Congo, which hit the crossbar twice and had a good penalty appeal turned down, then took over as its opponent suddenly folded.Yannick Bolasie created the first goal for striker Mbokani three minutes after Republic of Congos second. He sped down the left, beat his defender to the byline, and pulled back a cross to give the big forward an easy tap in.Mbokanis forward partner, Loteteka Bokila, equalized with 15 minutes left, powering a shot into the roof of thee net after his first effort was blocked.ddddddddddddSubstitute Joel Kimuaki headed in a third from a set-piece with nine minutes to go, and Mbokani bore down on goal in the dying seconds to force the ball home and make sure of Congos place in the last four for the first time in 17 years.Republic of Congo coach Claude Le Roy called it probably his most disappointing moment in a record eight African Cups as a coach.When we were leading 2-0, to be honest we were not far from the dream, he said. But the dream was not there. It was a terrible game.The match had been sedate at best in the first half, with a couple of half-chances for each.But it exploded into life after the break, with both former champions searching for a long-awaited return to the last four after slipping out of African footballs elite over the last few decades.Republic of Congo appeared destined to make its first semis since 1974, after leading by two with less than 30 minutes to play.Congo goalkeeper Robert Kidiaba yelled furiously at his defenders for the lapses that led to both of Republic of Congos goals, but was briefly reduced to tears of joy, and hugging one of those defenders when Kimuaki headed in the third to turn the game.
