Inter Milan makes Luciano Spalletti their New Manager on a two-year contract

Inter Milan names former Roma boss Luciano Spalletti as their new manager.

Spalletti guided Roma to second place in the Serie A last season before leaving on 30 May after 16 months in charge.

Inter offered Spalletti a two-year contract, effectively replacing Stefano Piolo on 9 May.

An Inter statement said Spalletti will take first-team training from 3 July with the three-time champions of Europe.

Last month, Inter Milan refused to comment on reports they were planning to offer Chelsea boss Antonio Conte a deal to replace Pioli.

Inter Milan 1-2 Sampdoria. Serie A

Fabio Quagliarella’s penalty served as another dent in Inter’s Champions League prospects as Sampdoria left San Siro with a 2-1 win.

A late Fabio Quagliarella penalty left Inter’s Champions League hopes in tatters as Sampdoria came from behind to win 2-1 at San Siro on Monday.

Stefano Pioli’s men were hoping to close the gap between themselves and the top three to six points after Napoli’s draw with Juventus, but they could not make the most of their superiority and Quagliarella punished them from 12 yards.

Inter were dominant throughout the first half and deservedly took a lead into the break thanks to Danilo D’Ambrosio’s deflected effort in the 35th minute.

The visitors rarely troubled Inter at the back, but they were twice denied by the frame of the goal in the first half, with Quagliarella kept out just before the half-hour mark and Bruno Fernandes unlucky soon after.

Sampdoria did restore parity early in the second half, though, as youngster Patrik Schick scored his eighth Serie A goal of the season to continue his encouraging start to life in Italy.

Mauro Icardi was guilty of a diabolical miss 18 minutes from time as he failed to finish off his former team and Sampdoria took full advantage, Quagliarella scoring the winner against Inter for the second time this season.
