There are already reports Inter could sack Frank de Boer and bring in Fabio Capello if he loses to Juventus on Sunday.
The Coach was only drafted in two weeks before the start of the season when Roberto Mancini parted company by mutual consent due to disagreements with the club hierarchy.
De Boer has managed one victory in four games, a last-gasp 2-1 result at Pescara last weekend.
His position was put under huge pressure after this evening’s shock 2-0 home defeat to Hapoel Beer-Sheva in the Europa League.
Inter were jeered off the pitch at San Siro and, according to calciomercato.com, De Boer is already at a crossroads on Sunday against Juventus.
If he loses the Derby d’Italia in an embarrassing fashion, then De Boer could be sacked to make way for Capello.
The same reports also suggest that there is a clause in De Boer’s contract allowing Inter to terminate early by paying him just €1.5m.
There are many concerns at the club regarding De Boer’s tenure, above all that they have scored just three goals in four games – all of them by Mauro Icardi.
Inter have also been in a leading situation for just one minute this season, the period between Icardi’s winner and the final whistle at Pescara.
De Boer's comments this evening after the defeat to Hapoel also caused confusion, as he claimed that "for periods in the second half I saw the football I wanted."
