Gasperini named new Inter boss

Inter Milan have confirmed Gian Piero Gasperini will take charge of the side next season.

PSG confirm Leonardo role
Mihajlovic again rules out Inter

Gasperini, 53, has been out of work since being sacked as Genoa boss in November last year. He had secured promotion from Serie B in 2007 and led the side into the Europa League in 2009.

A club statement read: "It will be Gian Piero Gasperini to become Inter's new coach. The official announcement will be made once all the final bureaucratic formalities are completed.

"Once this is done, the date of Gasperini's unveiling will be given. Gasperini will sign a two-year contract."

Inter president Massimo Moratti added: "I am fully satisfied with the choice. I wish Gasperini all the success that has taken Inter to become Club World champions."

Gasperini will replace Leonardo, who leaves to take on a role as sporting director at Paris St Germain after replacing Rafael Benitez in December.

Inter have suffered a series of disappointments in their search for a new coach, with Marcelo Bielsa and Sinisa Mihajlovic both turning down the job and Andre Villas-Boas heading to Chelsea.

Moratti had even suggested this week that Leonardo could continue as coach, although PSG dismissed the idea shortly afterwards.
