In­ter con­firm Mancini exit

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport Starts Here -

IN­TER Mi­lan have parted com­pany with man­ager Roberto Mancini, and are set to ap­point for­mer Ajax boss Frank de Boer.

Mancini’s po­si­tion had been in doubt be­cause of his re­ported mis­giv­ings over In­ter’s trans­fer busi­ness.

Dutch­man De Boer, 46, is be­lieved to have agreed a three-year con­tract to suc­ceed the 51-year-old Ital­ian.

In­ter, who were bought by Chi­nese re­tail gi­ant Sun­ing in June, were beaten 6-1 by Tot­ten­ham in a pre­sea­son match on Fri­day.

They an­nounced Mancini’s de­par­ture “by mu­tual agree­ment” on Mon­day.

The for­mer Manch­ester City boss re­turned to In­ter for a sec­ond spell as man­ager in 2014 but was un­able to guide them back into the Cham­pi­ons League, fin­ish­ing fourth last sea­son.

High-level dis­cus­sion­ss­cus­sos took pla­cepace wwitht thete club’scubs new Chi­nese own­ers in New York last month and,d, after a third­prethey

pre­sea­son de­feat, they have parted with Mancini just two weeks be­fore the new Serie A sea­son.

For­mer Nether­lands in­ter­na­tional Dee Boer left Ajax ear­lier this sum­mer­mer and had been linked with the Southamp­ton and Ever­ton jobs.

He led the Amsterdam club to four suc­ces­sive Dutch ti­tles but lost out to PSVV Eind­hoven on the fi­nal dayy of last sea­son. — BBC Sport
