Frank de Boer has been sacked as head coach of Inter after 85 days

Inter Milan have sacked manager Frank de Boer after just 85 days in charge of the Italian club.

Inter are 12th in the Serie A table after a 1-0 loss at Sampdoria on Sunday, their fourth defeat in five league games.

Former Netherlands defender and ex-Ajax boss De Boer, 46, was heavily linked with vacancies at Premier League clubs Everton and Southampton in the summer.

Inter visit Southampton in the Europa League on Thursday (20:05 GMT).

Youth team coach Stefano Vecchi will take charge of the first team for that fixture.
