Inter have officially confirmed that Gian Piero Gasperini has been sacked as Coach after just five games in charge.

A club statement was released today, confirming the widely-expected news that the 53-year-old former Genoa Coach has been relieved of his duties.

"FC Internazionale announces this morning, at the sports centre of Appiano Gentile, that first team training was directed by Giuseppe Baresi and Daniele Bernazzani.

"The club would like to thank Gian Piero Gasperini for his efforts with the team, and we express our regret at breaking the relationship with the Coach."

Gasperini oversaw just five games in charge, and in leaving with four defeats and a draw to his name, becomes the first Coach in the club's history to have not won a game.

Earlier today Massimo Moratti was quoted outside his offices as saying Gasperini found himself in a 'difficult situation', but denied that there was a poor relationship between Coach and players.

Claudio Ranieri and Delio Rossi are emerging as front-runners to replace Gasperini
