Seria A club Inter Milan have confirmed the sacking of head coach Roberto Mancini although the manager is insisting he left by “mutual consent”.
Mancini took over at Inter back in November 2014, and guided the club to a fourth spot finish last season.
But his relationship with the owners Suning Holdings is believed to have broken down over the summer and he has now lost his job.
It was the second time the 46-year-old Italian coach had managed Inter Milan, having won three league titles and two Coppa Italias during his first spell as manager between 2004-2008.
After being sacked by the Seria A club back in 2008, Mancini took over at Manchester City winning the FA Cup, Community Shield and their first ever Premier League title before leaving the club and taking over Turkish side Galatasaray back in 2013. He led the club to a Turkish Cup trophy before leaving at the end of the season.
After sacking Roberto Mancini just two weeks before the new Serie A season begins, Inter Milan have now appointed Dutch Frank De Boer as their new head coach.
