Inter Milan sack manager Claudio Ranieri
Ranieri, who previously managed Chelsea. only took charge at the San Siro in September, replacing Gian Piero Gasperini, who was dismissed after only five games in charge.
President Massimo Moratti had earlier said "I think that Claudio Ranieri will remain until the end of the season" but clearly his discussions with the beleaguered manager did not go well.
Youth team coach Andrea Stramaccioni will take charge of the Nerazzurri, but clearly that is just a stop-gap measure and another former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has been strongly linked with taking up the manager's role on a permanent basis.
