Inter Milan chief Paolillo coy over their coaching candidates

Inter Milan chief Ernesto Paolillo is keeping their cards close to his chest over their coaching search.

Sinisa Mihajlovic pledged his future to Fiorentina with a statement last night, so the options remain Porto's Andre Villas-Boas, ex-Palermo Coach Delio Rossi, England manager Fabio Capello or former Genoa boss Gian Piero Gasperini.

"Asking me if it'll be a foreign or an Italian Coach is like asking if he'll be tall or blond. I know the job of journalists, but if we want to achieve the best results, we have to keep quiet," continued Paolillo.

He was then asked whether Leonardo's sudden decision to quit had caught them unprepared.

"A club like Inter is never unprepared, as it always has plans in place, even if they are obviously not made public. We have a relaxed rapport between Inter and Leonardo, just as we evaluated the situation calmly.

"If we had a set date to announce the new Coach then we would've done it already. For obvious reasons, the decision will be announced soon."
