INTER SACK DE BOER
INTER MILAN fired Dutchman Frank de Boer as coach yesterday after less than three months in charge during which the former European champions lost seven of their 14 competitive games. Inter, who dropped to 12th in the Serie A table following Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Sampdoria, said youth team coach Stefano Vecchi would be in charge of the team for Thursday’s Europa League match at Southampton. “The club thanks Frank and his staff for the work they have undertaken at the and wish them the best for the future,” Inter said in a statement. Inter, traditionally one of Italy’s three biggest clubs alongside Juventus and city rivals AC Milan, appointed the 46-year-old De Boer on Aug. 9, two weeks before the start of the season, after Robert Mancini left by mutual consent.
