Inter Milan sack Frank de Boer after Sampdoria defeat
Frank de Boer has been relieved of his position as head coach of Inter following a defeat to Sampdoria on Sunday in a Serie A fixture.
Pressure has been on De Boer, who took charge in August, with the club sitting at a disappointing 12th in the table after four wins from 11 matches.
Although Chief executive Michael Bolingbroke insisted De Boer had “100 per cent” backing before the defeat at Sampdoria, with just five wins from his first 14 games at the helm the Dutchman has been shown the exit door, bringing his days in charge to just 85 days.
Primavera coach Stefano Vecchi will take temporary charge ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash against Southampton. “FC Internazionale Milano announce that it has today terminated the contract of coach Frank de Boer with immediate effect,” an official club statement read.
“Inter Primavera coach Stefano Vecchi will take temporary charge of the first team for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League match against Southampton.
“Inter would like to place on record its thanks to Frank and his coaching team for their work done with the club over the past months and wishes them the best for the future.
“Further announcements regarding the first team coaching position will be made in due course.” Former Lazio coach Stefano Pioli has been linked with the position.
