Inter made the official announcement this evening, sacking Andrea Stramaccioni so the ex-Napoli tactician could sign a two-year contract.
"Sackings are never nice," confessed the patron on the club website. "This change is due to the fact that we'll have a tough year and I thought we needed a Coach with the experience of Mazzarri.
"That doesn't diminish the fact that we rate Stramaccioni as a talented Coach with potential and I'm sure he'll become one of the best coaches in Italy.
"The reasons might even safeguard his professionalism because perhaps he was particularly unlucky and, at this moment in time, he might need to find himself in an easier situation than the one at Inter. But with the year he's had he will find that. It won't be an easy situation because we'll need to show we're very good and also of course have some luck."
