FRANK de Boer has been sacked by Inter Milan – during a conference call. The Dutchman has only been in charge since August but has won just five of his 14 games in charge. His departure from the San Siro will alert potential suitors in the Premier League. Reports in Italy said De Boer was to be fired during a phone call with the club’s Chinese owners. The Suning Holdings Group bought a majority share in the club in June and has acted quickly with the side languishing in 12th place in Serie A. De Boer was linked with the vacant Everton job when Roberto Martinez was sacked but the Goodison Park club opted for his countryman Ronald Koeman. The Ajax and Barcelona legend was at the training ground on Tuesday morning to say goodbye to his players and staff. A club statement read: “”Internazionale Milan announce that it has today terminated the contract of coach Frank de Boer. “The club would like to thank Frank and his staff for the work they have done and wish them the best for the future.” De Boer replaced Roberto Mancini in Milan after winning four titles in less than six years with Ajax.
