On the day the Arsenal board came out swinging at Arsene Wenger’s critics virtually promising a lifetime guarantee of employment, Inter’s president Massimo Moratti was showing the door to Gian Paolo Gasperini after just five matches.
Today, Inter named his successor and it is Claudio Rainieri who in a twist was Jose Mourinho’s predecessor at Chelsea before getting fired. He now steps into a vacuum left behind by Mourinho which has claimed Leonardo and Gasperini.
Rainieri found time to praise Gasperini.
“Gasperini didn’t make a mistake and we have to say well done because he tried everything to make his ideas work.”
Moratti is hoping that Rainieri can work the same magic that lifted Roma two years ago from relegation zone all the way to finish runners up to Inter.
