    13.10 - Who will replace De Boer?  The Italian part of management (Ausilio, Gardini, Zanetti) want someone local, with Stefano Pioli the first choice. The Chinese owners, on the other hand, prefer Andre Villas Boast, Marcelino, or Gerardo Martino. 

    12.45 - De Boer has spoken for the first time, writing the following on his instagram account. 
    "It's a pity it had to end like this. We needed more time to take this project forward. I'd like to thank the fans for all the support you gave me in these months. Forza Inter". 

    12.35 - Inter and De Boer agreed to end the Dutchman's deal, with Ausilio and Gardini speaking first to the Dutchman, then to the squad in a severe tone, with Javier Zanetti there, too. They attributed a lot of responsibility to the squad, too. After that, Vecchi was introduced, and led the first training session. He will guide the team in its first game with Crotone, then the club will decided on a replacement. Pioli isn't necessarily a cert, though he is interested and returned home early from a holiday in the United States. The whole squad, even those not selected, will head to Southampton tomorrow.
