Inter turn to Ranieri

INTER MILAN have confirmed the hiring of Claudio Ranieri as manager to replace sacked coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

Ranieri, who has previously managed Chelsea, Juventus and - most recently - Roma, has signed for the Nerazzurri on a two-year deal.

Inter announced Gasperini’s departure yesterday, a day after a humiliating 3-1 Serie A loss to newly-promoted Novara. That left Inter with one point from three Serie A games and winless under Gasperini.
