Italian club side FC Internazionale, more commonly known as Inter Milan, have parted ways with head coach Frank de Boer after only 85 days in charge.
Dutchman de Boer took charge of the team back in August, after former manager Roberto Mancini was sacked with just a few weeks to the start of the season. He was tasked with improving on last season’s fourth place finish but never quite managed to get his team going after having very little time in pre-season for preparations.
After losing 1-0 to Sampdoria on Sunday – Inter’s fourth loss in their last five games – de Boer’s already unstable position became untenable and the club announced his departure.
Youth team coach Stefano Vecchi would take charge of upcoming games until a substantive appointment is made.
de Boer, a former Netherlands international who built a legendary career, joined Inter from Ajax after five seasons in charge, winning four straight Dutch league titles and finishing second in his final season.
