Former Juventus director Giuseppe Marotta joined Inter Milan as CEO of Sport.

Inter confirmed his appointment at a board meeting on Thursday, and Marotta announced the news in a video message on the club's Twitter account.

Juventus announced Marotta's contract as CEO and CEO in late October.

Inter will adopt a co-CEO model in which Marotta will work with Alessandro Antonello, who will be responsible for all corporate activities as Chief Executive Officer Corporate.

Both CEOs will be reporting to Inter-President Steven Zhang.

"This is an important change for the club in terms of our goal of becoming a winning football club and a successful company," Zhang said.

"As an Inter, we want to win, entertain, inspire and connect people through football Beppe is one of the best executives in the football industry and will help us achieve our goals.

"Outside the field, Alessandro will ensure the improvement of our off-pitch performance, the successful completion of the club's strategic projects and the promotion of our values ​​within the organization."

Inter was eliminated on Tuesday in the Champions League, after he had achieved the third place in his group at home game against PSV Eindhoven 1: 1.
