Inter Milan had a horrendous outing this season by finishing in ninth place in Serie A. Not only did the team finish well below their standards, they had lost four of their last five fights which resulted in the team firing Andrea Stramaccioni. To replace Stramaccioni, Inter has brought former S.S.C. Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri on board.

In a game of musical managers, it looks like Napoli could be replacing Mazzarri with former Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez, though Napoli club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.

Mazzarri did an admirable job with Napoli this season, so Inter is very excited to see if he can turn around their underachieving team.

Inter Milan confirmed the news in a brief statement on their official website:

FC Internazionale would like to announce that the club has appointed Walter Mazzarri as the new head coach. FC Internazionale would like to thank Andrea Stramaccioni for the great commitment and professionalism he showed in a particularly difficult year. Walter Mazzarri has signed a two-year deal.
