Inter Milan legend Spillo Altobelli has questioned the appointment of new coach Gian Piero Gasperini.
The former Genoa boss was named new Inter coach last week.
‚ÄúWe welcome Gasperini, but we certainly can‚Äôt say he was the first choice,‚ÄĚ former striker Altobelli told Calciomercato.it.
‚ÄúI imagine he‚Äôll have a year to prove himself, then we‚Äôll see.‚ÄĚ
The decision came after a long period of uncertainty in which Inter were turned down by Marcelo Bielsa, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Andre Villas-Boas.
‚ÄúLeonardo‚Äôs sudden exit, which I hope one day he‚Äôll be able to explain, caught Inter off guard. All the top Coaches were already under contract.
It is Gasperini‚Äôs first big club and Altobelli points out he might not even have a year to make his mark.
‚ÄúWe know how football is experienced in Milan, Turin and Rome. Only victories fix things, starting from the Italian Super Cup against Milan in August.‚ÄĚ
