Gian Piero Gasperini replaces Leonardo as Inter manager
The former Genoa manager agrees a two-year deal at the San Siro, becoming Inter's fourth coach in one year
Internazionale have confirmed that Gian Piero Gasperini will replace Leonardo as the club’s new manager.
The 53-year-old is yet to sign his two-year contract at the San Siro, but the Serie A giants have confirmed that he will take over from Leonardo, who is set become Paris St Germain’s new sporting director.
An Inter statement read: “Gian Piero Gasperini will become Inter’s new coach. The official announcement will be made once all the final bureaucratic formalities are completed.
“Once this is done, the date of Gasperini’s unveiling will be given. Gasperini will sign a two-year contract.”
Inter president Massimo Moratti welcomed Gasperini’s selection. He said: “I am fully satisfied with the choice. I wish Gasperini all the success that have taken Inter to become Club World champions.”
Gasperini, who becomes Inter’s fourth coach in one year, guided Genoa to promotion from Serie B in 2007 and qualification for the Europa League with a fifth-place finish in Italy’s top flight in 2009, before being dismissed in November.
