Inter Milan have sacked Stefano Pioli after six months as head coach.
Pioli replaced Frank de Boer in November, with a contract that would last until the end of June 2018.
Inter’s Serie A season has been rough, Inter are currently seventh in the Serie A, 3 points adrift of AC Milan and the final qualifying spot for the Europa League, not to mention are winless in seven league games.
Youth team coach Stefano Vecchi take charge of the team for the rest of the season.
Inter Milan has struggled finding the right man for the job, with Pioli being the ninth manager since Jose Mourinho left in 2010.
A club statement read: “Inter thanks Stefano and his team for the dedication and hard work carried out at the club over the last six months in what has proven to be a difficult season.
“The club will begin planning now for the next season.”
