Inter sack head coach Mazzarri

The Giuseppe Meazza side have decided to part ways with the ex-Napoli boss and are expected to bring back Roberto Mancini to take his place

Inter have announced that they have parted company with head coach Walter Mazzarri following the club’s disappointing performances this term and are expected to appoint Roberto Mancini as his replacement.

The 53-year-old joined Inter in the summer of 2013 after leaving Napoli and guided the Giuseppe Meazza side to fifth place in the Serie A table in his first season in charge.

However, Mazzarri was unable to build on that in 2014-15, with Inter sitting ninth after 11 games, winning just four league encounters so far.

“FC Internazionale would like to announce that Walter Mazzarri has been relieved of his duties as first team coach,” the said in an official statement.

“The club would like to thank Mazzarri for the commitment, dedication and professionalism he showed over his 17 months in charge.”

Mancini previously coached Inter between 2004 and 2008, leading them to three Serie A titles and two Coppa Italia trophies, and is expected to be appointed by owner Erick Thohir as Mazzarri’s replacement.

Mancini was fired by Inter in May 2008, with Jose Mourinho eventually taking his place.

The ex-Italy international has since coached Manchester City and Galatasaray, but had been out of work since leaving the Istanbul giants in the summer of 2014.
