MICHAEL BOL­ING­BROKE has re­signed as CEO of Inter Milan and been re­placed by the Sun­ing Sports group’s vice-pres­i­dent, Liu Jun, on an in­terim ba­sis.

Inter said yes­ter­day that its board of di­rec­tors ac­cepted Bol­ing­broke’s res­ig­na­tion “with im­me­di­ate ef­fect”.

A club state­ment says that Liu, who is Chi­nese, will be based at Inter’s Milan head­quar­ters.

Bol­ing­broke, an English­man who for­merly worked at Manchester United, came to Inter af­ter the club was pur­chased by In­done­sian en­tre­pre­neur Erick Tho­hir three years ago.

Sun­ing, the Chi­nese re­tail gi­ant, took con­trol of 70 per­cent of Inter in June, with Tho­hir re­tain­ing 30.

Inter fired Man­ager Frank de Boer last week. For­mer Lazio coach Ste­fano Pi­oli is ex­pected to be named as new coach.

Inter is ninth in Serie A, 13 points be­hind leader Ju­ven­tus.
