Summer school for Stramaccioni

Andrea Stramaccioni will have to attend summer school if the Inter boss wants to gain his Coverciano coaching licence.

The tactician has rubbished the claim that he won’t be able to sit his exam in June because of a lack of attendance, but he’s admitted he has some catching up to do.

“I'm keen to make up all the classes I've missed,” he told Inter Channel on Friday. “They obviously know why I have not been there at times.

“The course doesn't factor in the European club calendar given that it is for Coaches who theoretically haven't yet reached the top flight.

“I’m an exception to this, so obviously there have been a few Tuesdays and Wednesdays where I've been on a plane somewhere because of a Europa League game.

“I've already agreed with Renzo Ulivieri, the President of the Italian Coaches’ Association, that I'll catch up on these over the summer.

“I will be there for the exam and I'll make Inter proud.”

Stramaccioni was appointed Inter boss last March after being promoted from the youth team set-up to replace Claudio Ranieri.
