Spalletti joins Inter job race

Luciano Spalletti is the latest candidate for the Inter bench, although he has already started the season with Zenit.

The race to fill the job left vacant by Leonardo continues to dominate headlines in Italy.

Marcelo Bielsa, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Andre Villas-Boas have all ruled themselves out of this battle.

Options are increasingly limited and the media suggest the new favourite is ex-Roma Coach Spalletti.

He has plenty of Serie A experience, having impressed at Udinese and then fought Inter tooth and nail for the Scudetto at Roma.

The Tuscan has been at Zenit St. Petersburg since December 2009 and in his debut season won the Treble of League title, Russian Cup and Russian Super Cup.

It is not the first time Spalletti has been linked with Inter, but it might be difficult to prise him away as the Russian season has already kicked off.
