Inter Milan sack head coach Frank de Boer after 11 Serie A games

Milan, Italy – Dutch manager Frank de Boer has been sacked as head coach at Inter Milan following the team’s latest defeat to Sampdoria on Sunday evening, the club announced.

“FC Internazionale Milano announced today that they have parted company with head coach Frank de Boer with immediate effect,” read the statement.

The Dutchman, who was appointed in August, has lost seven of his 14 games and 85 days in charge of the Italian club.

The Italian giants are 12th in the table after they were beaten 1-0 away at Sampdoria on Sunday – their fifth defeat of the campaign – and sit bottom of their Europa League group.

In his place Stefano Vecchi will take temporary control of the first team until a replacement is named. Inter will face Southampton on Thursday for UEFA Europa League and will face Crotone for a Serie A match at home before Il Calcio’s Milan Derby against AC Milan.

De Boer signed a three-year contract to succeed Roberto Mancini in the summer after resigning as manager of Ajax following their failure to win the Eredivisie title.

De Boer tweeted that “to carry out this project needed more time” and thanked Inter supporters for their support.

Inter are now looking for a ninth manager since Jose Mourinho left in the summer of 2010.
