Inter have parted company with head coach Stefano Pioli amid what the club described as “a difficult season”.
The Nerazzurri are three points adrift of a European spot, battling city rivals AC Milan and Fiorentina for the final Europa League spot in Serie A.
Pioli was Inter’s third coach in a turbulent season after Frank de Boer replaced Roberto Mancini on the eve of the campaign before he was sacked in November.
Former Lazio coach Pioli initially led an improvement in fortunes, winning 10 of his first 13 games in charge.
However, a winless run of seven games has cost Pioli his job.
