Former Inter Milan owner and president Erick Thohir has joined the board of League One club Oxford United.

The Indonesian businessman – founder of media company Mahaka Group – left the board of the Italian giants last month, having bought a majority stake in 2013.

Thohir, 48, has also owned Major League Soccer club DC United and had a stake in basketball side Philadelphia 76ers.

“If I can add my experience to help the club build for the future then that is great for all of us,” he said.

Oxford chairman Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth told the club website: “I have known him a long time, know he will be a major asset to this football club, and know that we now have a board who I believe can truly move this club forward.”

The U’s are currently 21st in League One, having won only three of their 17 games so far this season.
