Gian Piero Gasperini takes charge at Inter

After a season which failed to meet expectations, Inter have decided to part ways with temporary replacement Leonardo instead signing former Genoa manafer Gian Piero Gasperini. Inter won two trophies in the 2010/2011 European campaign (Club World Cup, Coppa Nazionale). After failing to regain their league title, and mount a successful Champions League campaign, Massimo Moratti is looking at signing a host of players.

Attacking midfielder Wesley Sneijder as well as Maicon have been heavily reported as leaving Inter. But Interisti would hope that the signing of a new manager will result in such key players remaining in the capital, rather than jetting off abroad (Manchester United and Real Madrid the most likely destinations).

Gasperini will sign a two year contract with the Italian giants. It will prove to be the first of many signings for the club who are hungry to regain the title they forfeited to Milan in 2010/2011.
