Younger boss, older Inter

The promotion of youth team boss Andrea Stramaccioni has actually seen the average age of the Inter side increase!

The tactician, 36, was promoted to the top job after Claudio Ranieri was fired following the 2-0 loss at Juventus.

Stramaccioni was expected to bring in some younger elements into the Nerazzurri fold, but the opposite has happened.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the two sides that he has fielded so far against Genoa and Cagliari averaged 31.8 in age.

The average age of Gian Piero Gasperini’s sides was 30.1, while Ranieri’s clocked up 30.5.

Stramaccioni, however, following a win and a draw, could unleash youngsters Ricky Alvarez and Joel Obi in tonight’s tie against Siena.
