Inter Milan manager Luciano Spalletti has been axed by the Serie A outfit after two seasons.

“FC Internazionale Milano can confirm that Luciano Spalletti is no longer Head Coach of the First Team.
“The Club wishes to thank Spalletti for his work and the results achieved together,” Inter Milan tweeted on its official handle.
Interestingly, the 60-year-old Argentine manager left Roma’s Stadio Olimpico for San Siro in the summer of 2017, leading the Nerazzurri back to successive Champions League football – their first in seven seasons.

Additional report from Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport claims Spalletti will be replaced by Conte, with his appointment set to be confirmed on Friday, May 31.
