Inter confirm Mancini exit
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.
