Inter Milan announced on Tuesday that they have parted ways with head coach Frank De Boer. The Dutchman’s reign lasted just 14 matches.
De Boer, 46, took over for Roberto Mancini just weeks before the start of the season. After five losses in the league already, and sitting in 12th place in the table, the club is cutting its ties with De Boer. The club posted a statement on its official website.
“F.C. Internazionale Milano announce today that they have parted company with head coach Frank De Boer with immediate effect,” the statement read.
“Inter Primavera coach Stefano Vecchi will take temporary charge of the first team for Thursday’s UEFA Europa League match against Southampton.
“Inter would like to place on record its thanks to Frank and his coaching team for the work with the club over the past months and wishes them the best for the future.”
In addition to the poor position in the league, the team is also last in their Europa League group after getting just one win in the opening three games. The club has not named a replacement for De Boer yet. Potential names that have been talked about in the media include Stefano Pioli and Andre Villas-Boas. Pioli is the former manager of Lazio. Former Chelsea and Tottenham boss Villas-Boas has most recently ended a two-year stint with Zenit St. Petersburg in the Russian Premier League.
Inter takes on Southampton in the Europa League on Thursday before going up against Crotone in league play on Sunday.
