Inter Milans grand plans stretch far beyond Italy as it harnesses the connections of its new Chinese ownership to expand the fan base and attract sponsors in Asia.There an illustrious history attached to the brand for Inters executives to sell to companies: From the three Champions League triumphs to the 18 Italian titles.Theres just little to trumpet about the clubs current showing on the field.In the first season since being bought by Chinese electronics retailer Suning in June, Inter has won just three of its eight league games and sits 11th in Serie A. The team heads into Thursdays Europa League game against Southampton bottom of its group without a point after two losses.Publicly, they arent panicking yet in the Inter boardroom or contemplating a change of coaches, with Frank de Boer only two months into the job.He came in 10 days before the start of the season, chief executive Michael Bolingbroke said. So we want to give him time.Bolingbroke, a former Manchester United executive, talked enthusiastically for 40 minutes during a visit to London, about a five-year plan to transform the club thats approaching halftime.My remit when I joined (in 2012) was to get Inter back successful on and successful off the pitch, Bolingbroke said. Consistently in the Champions League, making money, not losing money.Suning announced in June that it was buying nearly 70 percent of the clubs equity for around 270 million euros (then $306 million). The change of ownership from Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir to Chinese entrepreneur Zhang Jindong has enabled Inter to accelerate the business plan, Bolingbroke said.Losses of around 60 million euros ($66 million) are set to be reported for 2015-16 but Inter expects to have cut them by a third this year and be profitable by 2019.Although revenue is forecast to break the 200 million-euro barrier this season, that is only a third of Manchester Uniteds 2016-17 target, one of the biggest in soccer. The gulf in the clubs moneymaking abilities reflects just how far Serie A lags the English Premier League, after being the dominant competition in Europe at the end of the last century.Sunings ownership can help to redress the balance, with Bolingbroke regarding Chinese owners as a game-changer for Inter.They think we as a club have completely underestimated the value of being in China and we are guilty of not exploiting the Chinese market enough, he said. When we sat down with them, they asked why we dont have more sponsors in Asia.Why would Asia sponsors want to be associated with a struggling team in a league that lacks the global coverage of the Premier League or La Liga? In China, hitching yourself to soccer is in vogue, viewed as a shortcut to securing influence in high places now that President Xi Jinping has encouraged investment in the game to strengthen the domestic league and national team.But Suning, which also owns Jiangsu Suning club at home, is not just frittering cash on soccer to rise up the business strata.If it was all about politics, why would they say a priority is not losing money? Bolingbroke stresses.To make money, 12 Inter staff will be operating from a Chinese sales office in Nanjing by next month, working closely with Sunings local HQ.As European clubs, its very hard in Asia unless you have a bridgehead, opening doors, Bolingbroke said. If you dont have a Suning with you, you dont have access to that business in China. With the access they have, we have opportunities we didnt have before they came along.Inter estimates 148 million of its 311 million fans are in China, citing data from research firm Repucom. Inter is also working in tandem with Jiangsu Suning, the Chinese Super League club also owned by Zhang.They have spent a lot of time trying to understand how our academy system works, Bolingbroke said. They want Jiangsu Suning to be top of the Chinese Super League, not by importing players but developing their own.There is no directive to bring Chinese players over to the San Siro just to pander to the ownership at home.We fail if we dont win trophies, Bolingbroke said. You arent going to be able to do that if you compromised your technical squad because a signing would be good for sponsorship.Winning with the current squad is hard enough at the moment as it endures a four-game run without a win.---Rob Harris is at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Nike Shox R4 Womens .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Nike Shox R4 Clearance . Their 38th instalment is arguably their biggest fight card to date, including three-title fights and a main event which was selected by the fans. The promotion boasts 14-straight years of business and is operated by MFC president Mark Pavelich, who is often overlooked in this country for the foundation hes established for MMA in Canada. http://www.nikeshox2018uk.com/ . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Nike Shox Clearance .com) - The Calgary Flames aim to bounce back from their first regulation home loss of the campaign on Friday night when they host a Detroit Red Wings club that they swept in three meetings a season ago. Nike Shox Current .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. OXFORD, Miss. -- Of the four main players from Mississippis talented 2013 recruiting class, three of them are now millionaires.Then theres safety Tony Conner.Hed likely be in the NFL right now -- along with defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche, receiver Laquon Treadwell and offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil -- if it hadnt been for a major knee injury against Alabama last season that caused him to miss more than half of his junior year.Now hes back in Oxford while his former teammates are getting ready to play on Sundays. He insists hes OK with that.On draft night I watched and it was kind of crazy at first, Conner said. But I still salute those guys. God has a reason for everything.Conners recovery from the torn meniscus in his right knee has been tougher than initially expected. The injury happened in the teams win over the Crimson Tide in September, but the hope was he would have surgery and return in about 4-6 weeks.Conner came back for two games in November -- against Arkansas and LSU -- but it was clear he wasnt the same. He was shut down for the rest of the season and had another surgery.Conner said he feels about 90 percent and thats hes progressing each day and will be ready when the 11th-ranked Rebels face No. 4 Florida State on Monday in Orlando, Florida.Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said Conner has handled the career setback as well as possible. The safety grew up about 25 miles from the Ole Miss campus in Batesville, so hes had plenty of family and friends close by to provide support.Hes got a great mom who keeps him grounded and hes just a guy who loves to play the game, Freeze said. I think, really, that Tony would stay at Ole Miss forr 10 years if he could because hes just a country boy who loves to be at home.dddddddddddd But hell get his opportunity in the NFL.If the 6-foot-0, 225-pound senior is close to his former self this year, the Rebels will receive a huge boost for their defense. The hard-hitter -- who often plays in the hybrid safety/linebacker role that the Rebels use in their 4-2-5 defense -- had 69 tackles as a sophomore in 2014 and led all SEC defensive backs with nine tackles for a loss.But players and coaches said the leadership he provides is at least just as important.Tony is a grown man back there and thats what I love about him, Ole Miss defensive lineman Breeland Speaks said. Hes going to play his heart out every time. Thats what you get with Tony. Any time you have a player like that with talent -- like first-round NFL talent -- you cant go wrong.Freeze said the Rebels mid-season swoon last year -- which included losses to Florida to Memphis -- was in part because the defense was a little lost without Conner.It took us three games last year to figure out how to play without him, Freeze said.Freeze said hed like to limit Conners snaps early in the season, but he might not have that luxury. The Rebels go into the game with several young players at safety following the departure of seniors Mike Hilton and Trae Elston.He is a leader, he understands the game, hes physical, Freeze said. Hes just a football player so I think him at 90 percent makes us a lot better.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys NFL China Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
