Inter Milan have sacked coach Stefano Pioli after six months in charge with the club having gone seven games without victory. Pioli has paid for Inter's poor recent form which has seen the Nerazzurri pick up just two points during their winless run.Sunday's 1-0 defeat at relegation-battling Genoa left Inter in seventh place in Serie A, nine points adrift of fifth-placed Atalanta, and proved the final straw for the club's board. A statement on www.inter.it reads “Inter Milan announces that it has parted ways with coach Stefano Pioli and his technical staff. Inter thanks Stefano and his team for their dedication and hard work at the club over the last six months in what has proven to be a difficult season.”
Inter confirmed that youth team coach Stefano Vecchi would take charge for the club's final three games of the season, against Sassuolo, Lazio and Udinese.
