President Erick Thohir welcomed Roberto Mancini via inter.it, saying: “Today I made the difficult decision to suspend Walter Mazzarri as Head Coach. It was a decision that I reached in conjunction with my Management Team.It was a difficult decision because he has been continuously supportive of the direction that we have wanted to take the Club, and he has worked tirelessly & selflessly for Inter, with both belief and passion. I would like to thank him sincerely for his efforts.
However, our goal is to regain our rightful position as one of the very top Clubs in Europe and that’s why I am so happy to welcome back Roberto Mancini. His track record both at Inter and elsewhere speaks for itself, and his International experience and hunger for success will I know drive the team to the next level.”
Mancini will be unveiled to the media at the Centro Sportivo Angelo Moratti in Appiano Gentile tomorrow, Saturday 15 November at 14:00 CET. After the news conference he will take his first training session with the team.
The club would like to welcome Roberto on board and wish him the best of luck in his new job.
