Former Inter Milan fullback Francesco Coco feels the appointment of Andrea Stramaccioni has been a masterstroke.

Stramaccioni, just 36, has already charmed the local media and enjoyed a thrilling start to his career with a 5-4 win over Genoa.

Coco, once of Inter, AC Milan and Barcelona, opined: "The coach has been good at handling the situation, although he has no magic wand.

"He can finish this season well, is clear and has been able to handle well the aspect of media and communication.

"I think for Italian football to have a figure like this is only positive."
