Alessandro Altobelli has given a scathing assessment of former club Inter and boss Andrea Stramaccioni.
Inter are ninth in Serie A with just one game left this season and they have failed to qualify for Europe next term.
Despite the difficulties, President Massimo Moratti continues to back Stramaccioni – a decision which surprises the 1982 World Cup winner.
“Moratti is in love with Stramaccioni and I don’t understand why,” Altobelli, who spent a decade with the club as a player, told Radio Onda Libera.
“This is the worst Inter that I can remember. They play badly, they scored little and they lose a lot.
“Injuries are not enough to explain such a negative season. They’ve not shown any tactical features or a style of play.”
Altobelli believes a change of Coach is a necessity and he’s pushing for Moratti to look at the Stadio San Paolo in Napoli.
“If Inter want to re-launch then they need to target Walter Mazzarri. If he can’t arrive then it will probably all remain as it is.”
Mazzarri, also linked with Roma, is only tied to the Azzurri until June.
