Frank de Boer, Inter need pragmatism to compete for Champions League

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the influence of dutch football in Italy and whether Frank de Boer can work his magic at Inter.

Inter Milan's defeat against Chievo on Sunday had all the makings of a summer friendly. Having had only one exhibition game against Celtic -- the Borussia Monchengladbach tie was called off -- to prepare, manager Frank de Boer lined his men up in a 3-5-2 formation, only to be rewarded with a limp, lifeless performance, not to mention an embarrassing 2-0 defeat.

Everything seems to be going wrong at once for the Nerazzurri: the defence was a disaster, the midfield far from a cohesive unit and Mauro...

Inter's defence all at sea as Frank de Boer struggles to implement his style

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the influence of dutch football in Italy and whether Frank de Boer can work his magic at Inter.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains the predicaments Milan and Inter find themselves in at the start of the Serie A season.

Internazionale lost their Serie A opener 2-0 to a clinical Chievo on Sunday, with the hosts only having to flood the midfield to completely deprive Frank de Boer's side of any creative verve.

The defence was a particular concern, as it allowed former Milanista Valter Birsa to smash in his first-ever Calcio brace unopposed.

Though it's early days yet, De Boer has his work cut out for him.

Positives

Despite the defeat, two of last season's duds turned in some improved performances.

Inter are poised for a fascinating season of rebuilding in Juve's shadow

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.

It's over. After an eventful summer including a takeover, some embarrassing friendly results, Roberto Mancini's sacking and, last but not least, the Mauro Icardi camp's efforts to get a better contract, Inter are finally back to playing competitive football. Their beginning is hardly an auspicious one: a trip to the unfriendly confines of Chievo Verona's Bentegodi Stadium, from which the Nerazzurri barely escaped the last time they visited in September 2015. And yes, they needed a winning goal...

Season preview: Juventus favoured, but Roma and Napoli will contend

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains if any team in Serie A can prevent Juventus from winning a sixth straight league title.

The upcoming season in Serie A feels an awful lot like the Giro d'Italia in 1930. Back then, La Gazzetta dello Sport editor Emilio Colombo feared other riders, cycling fans and readers of his paper were losing interest after the dominant Alfredo Binda had won the race four years running. So Colombo decided to make him an offer. He wrote a cheque for what he might expect to earn in exchange for Binda's withdrawal from that year's race. Binda accepted.

Frank de Boer's five biggest priorities as he takes the helm at Inter Milan

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson discuss what Frank de Boer could bring to Inter Milan and the challenges he would face if appointed as manager.

It's been a roller coaster of a week for Inter Milan fans, who witnessed the arrival of Frank de Boer mere hours after the club parted ways with former manager Roberto Mancini. Now that the surprise has worn off, however, Nerazzurri Nation is reacting with a mixture of excitement and concern to a manager whose footballing philosophy appears to be light years removed from his predecessors', but who ironically has had little say in the assembling of the squad.

Serie A's big summer stories: Pogba leaves, Inter's reboot, Napoli woe

ESPN FC's Alison Bender and Stu Holden break down the Paul Pogba move and whether the hefty price tag will be worth it.

With several big stories in Serie A this summer, we asked James Horncastle to survey the state of Italian football heading into 2016-17.

Pogboom? No, ZZ Top

For the second time this century, Juventus have commanded a world-record transfer fee for one of their players. While it was Zinedine Zidane in 2001, see his fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba in 2016. The transfer deal with Manchester United amounts to €110 million including add-on, but Juve will not receive it in its entirety. As was revealed...
