Inter's 'ultra' fans walk out as winless streak reaches 8


Stefano Pioli became the second Inter manager to be sacked this season when he lost his job on Tuesday.

Stefano Vecchi, the youth coach, has taken the reigns as caretaker manager for the time being, but Inter are reportedly eyeing Chelsea's Antonio Conte for next season. It was Inter's fourth straight loss and caps a run of only two points in the last eight games.

Twenty minutes in with the score 0-0 during the lunchtime fixture, hard-core "ultra" fans unfurled a banner that read, "Since you don't deserve our support, today we're saluting you and going to eat". The stadium was practically empty on the final whistle.

It is claimed that both Sarri and Spalletti are now ahead of Pochettino in the pecking order, though the Argentine is the club's first choice if they go for a foreign coach. I am always honest and give my all. "We gave so much, but it was not enough".

Goalkeeper Samir Handanovic was less sympathetic to the current situation: "Inter can't find themselves in this situation in the league table". It's the most hard moment since I've been here.

The Spurs boss is understood to have a €5m release clause in his contract, however, with the future seemingly bright at Tottenham, the Nerazzurri will likely need to make him a substantial offer before he even considers walking away from his project in north London. "We'll see at the end of the season".

Conte and Simeone have since made it clear they want to stay at their respective clubs.

It was claimed previous year that Juventus had agreed that they would not take up their option to sign the player outright, allowing him the chance to decide his next move himself.
