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.
