Inter have sensationally sacked Claudio Ranieri and promoted youth team manager Andrea Stramaccioni for the rest of the season.
“President Massimo Moratti and everyone at F.C. Internazionale would like to offer their sincere thanks to Claudio Ranieri and his staff for the professionalism and commitment they showed over recent months in charge of the team,” read a statement.
“Furthermore F.C. Internazionale would like to report that Andrea Stramaccioni - the Coach of the Primavera team, who won the NextGen Series - will take charge of the first team.
“The club wishes Andrea Stramaccioni the best of luck as he will join up with the team tomorrow at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti.”
The announcement came under five hours after President Moratti was asked whether Ranieri would finish off the campaign.
“I think so, yes,” was his response.
