Reports in Portugal this evening have suggested that Luis Figo could become interim Inter Milan Coach.
The former Real Madrid and Barcelona midfielder is currently a board member at Inter.
Inter have been struggling of late and just two wins from their last nine League games. Sunday’s 4-1 thrashing by Fiorentina, was the Nerazzurri’s eighth league defeat of the season, and ended any hope they had of catching Serie A leaders Juventus.
This is a big week for Strama and Inter. Before the second Derby della Madonnina of the season on Sunday, Inter must first travel to Romania for the second leg of a Europa League tie with Cluj.
On Monday, Stramaccioni’s was asked whether he feared for his job and he answered:
“My future is Inter’s future. We’re always being judged and what matters most is immediately turning things around.”
I feel it would be a terrible knee-jerk mistake by Inter to fire Strama. Yes he is having growing pains as he learns on the job. But by all accounts, Stramaccioni has the potential to be a terrific manager. Why let him go elsewhere and develop there?
