BREAKING NEWS: Inter appoint Spalletti as new head coach

Updated: 

Inter have announced the appointment of Luciano Spalletti as the club's new head coach, the former Roma boss signing a two-year deal.

Spalletti left Roma despite leading his team to second place in Serie A last season, setting a new club points record although they finished four points behind champions Juventus.

The 58-year-old takes over from interim coach Stefano Vecchi, who was installed at San Siro following the May sacking of Stefano Pioli, who is the new coach of Fiorentina.

Spalletti will be presented to the media at a news conference on Wednesday having been given the chance to lead the club by new owners, Chinese company Suning Holdings Group.
