Roberto Mancini has been given his marching orders from Italian club Inter Milan, after allegedly falling out with Inter’s new owners.

Italian Press is reporting that Mancini’s relationship with Inter’s new owners, Chinese-based Suning Holdings broke down over the summer. Upon their acquisition of Inter in July, Mancini promised a large transfer budget for the 2016/17, but thus far had only secured Antonio Candreva’s signature.

Poor pre-season performances with losses to both Bayern Munich and Tottenham are said to be the final straw for Suning Holdings with Mancini. Several incidents between Mancini, the Inter board and Suning reached breaking point over the past two weeks, with today’s announcement being the final straw.

Former Ajax coach, Frank de Boer has already been touted as the favourite to replace Mancini at Inter Milan before the Serie A season begins.
